Posted on Fri, 18 Aug 2017 in Women's Health
Question: Hi. I was prescribed polygnax suppositories. I am currently trying to conceive. I finished them the day before ovulation. I have been using an ovulation kit. I had intercourse four days before ovulation and the day of ovulation. Will the polygnax kill sperm or affect my chances of conceiving?

Brief Answer:
no effect on sperm motility

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Polygnax suppositories contain mild antibiotics and antifungals.
It is known to have adverse effect on the sperm or its motility.
So, your chances of conceiving are not affected by polygnax.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
