This is purely anecdotal, but DH was on antidepressants when we conceived. DD is perfectly healthy, and none of my doctors ever seemed concerned about his medication.

LadyBear:  I’ll chime in.  DH is on Welbutrin, has been for longer than I’ve known him.  He has severe anxiety and slight OCD.  We’ve been ttc for 1.5 years now and have been diagnosed with MFI.  We also had a blighted ovum earlier this year (not sure who’d genes played into that one).  So of course I’ve always been concerned about what the anti-depressants were doing to his sperm.  I’ve asked his doctor, my doctor and our RE about it and they all say that it shouldn’t have an impact and he is to continue taking it.  Our RE knows our situation and I’m sure if he thought the meds were a threat he would have him discontinue them long ago.
