Sperm Chromatin Damage from SSRIs

There's a study underway right now, I just read about it but it totally underscores what I suspected based on our experience with my partner's sperm count and subsequent improvement when we got him off of Paxil and onto vitamins to deal with some nutritional deficiences -- from 2% morphology to 5% morphology in just four months. We've not ever had his sperm chromatin checked but take heed -- those SSRIs aren't necessarily helpful for all of what ails you.

Hi - My husband is on Paxil and just got a "diagnosis" of poor sperm morphology. It's at 4%. He has a son from a previous relationship, BEFORE Paxil. What dosage was your partner taking? Just curious.. Thanks
