Question:

My husband is taking Benicar HCT, will that keep us from getting pregant? Will it lower his sperm count?

Answer:

This is not listed as a common side effect of this medication.

If you have been attempting conception for greater than one year without success, you have infertility, and should see your physician for a work-up, before starting any fertility treatment.
