Hi,
I can understand your concern.
Epilim is not known to have any effect on sperm quality & the medicine does not have bad effect on growth of the baby.
Epilepsy being a genetically transferred disease , the children of one epileptic parents getting the transfer is 50%. A chromosomal analysis should be done to exclude such possibility.
Thanks.
