Do vaccinations have any adverse effect on sperm? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query.
Hello can you please advise whether vaccinations have any adverse effect on sperm
No vaccinations have no serious effects on sperm.
Some vaccines may induce short term febrile illness where the general body metabolism can be lowered.
But it doesn't last for more than a week.
It wouldn't cause any significant adverse effects on the sperm.
Have I answered your question.
Do you need any other information?
So if my partner has had a full series of all vaccinations there is no need to wait?
No risk of birth defects etc?
No, it won't cause birth defects.
Moreover if your partner received vaccination recently
I mean the sperms that would causes pregnancy are already produced and stored weeks or months before.
So if your partner has received vaccination recently, it won't cause any issues with those already produced and stored.
You can safely plan for pregnancy.
