Aside from what I can find at PubMed (NIH) and Google searches, does anyone have any real world knowledge of any issues with the father taking 6MP and conception?? I've found conflicting data from multiple sources - some peer reviewed and some not. Thought I would try here. My wife and I would like to have a child. Thanks!

I have been looking up a little bit about this drug because my Dr. wants to put me on it as well. here is a link that I found and it does list decreased fertility in both men and women.
