Does lisinopril cause infertility in women? Not able to conceive. Any suggestions?

I was wondering if lisinopril causes infertility in women . I was taking this for over 3 years and had been unsuccessful in conceiving a child. I recently switched to aldomet and we shall see if there is any luck. If there is a risk of infertility caused by lisinopril, is it reversible and how long does it take for the medication to be cleared out of your system?

There is no scientific evidence that lisinopril may affect fertility or cause difficulty in natural conception.

However, it is categorized as Class D drug by FDA for teratogenecity, i.e it may cause harm to the unborn fetus, and hence it is certainly advisable not to be on lisinopril and shift to aldomet while trying for pregnancy, as long as your blood pressure is well controlled on aldomet also.
