Thank you for putting up your problem.

Muscle relaxant in your case cyclobenzaprine does not interfere with your sexual function or the chances of getting pregnant.
Albeit I would like to say that their status about safety during pregnancy and lactation is not clear, so I would recommend that you should switch to topical spray/cream of NSAIDS/counter irritant combination to be on safer side.
They are also quite effective in relieving pain and spasm of joints and muscles.

I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you. Do let me know if you have more concerns.
