Thanks for posting your query.
Keppra contains levetiracetam. It is not likely to affect the quality or quantity of sperms. There are no studies available which show that there is any effect on the sperm on a long term use of this drug. Your husband can safely continue taking it while you are trying for a baby.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
