should I rather not TTC whilst donor has flu symptoms?
Well if DH had flu symptoms i would still try. But i know illness can effect sperm. XXX
Here;s what i found Hekate!
Fact: The flu slows sperm production. An illness that causes a fever can affect sperm production and sperm quality. But it won't affect fertility for two to three months, since it takes sperm 75 days to mature.
In other words, he's got healthy sperm now but could have some wonky ones in 3 months time. I'd get at it if i were you
thanks Omi that's so reassuring...I read some stuff about dna damage that really scared me....but suppose that would be after high fever???
Obviously dna damage is not something to sniff at but i am pretty sure it doesnt happen due to such a regular thing as a flu. Not enough to become a problem anyway, i would think. Thats my take on it!
All the best!!
Just want to wish you luck whatever you decide
thank you all! donor called after all....flu was a man-flu!
