At the request of my wife's gyno, I had a semen analysis done. I'm on 200 mg Azathioprine and have been off Prednisone about a month after having been on it about a year. Count was OK, but morphology was a bit low. White blood cell count was a bit high. Gyno prescribed a round of Bactrim, which I am hesitant to take. She thought there might be a mild infection of the prostate.
I don't know much about this stuff (fertility) and we aren't actively pursuing pregnancy. Just thought it would be a good idea to get this checked out. My gastro. said go ahead with the conception thing, as I was worried about the azathioprine. I've called him for his opinion about taking the antibiotic. Haven't heard from him yet.
I guess I'm wondering a couple of things. First, I know the topic of male fertility and Imuran has come up before, but anyone have any thoughts regarding my case specifically. Secondly, anyone have any experience with Bactrim. Thanks!
