Scientists discovered that the sperm count of men taking antidepressants, or SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), is lower than the sperm count of men not taking SSRIs. Sperm shape and motility are also more likely to be damaged for men who take SSRIs.

However, there is some good news. Once a man discontinues the use of SSRIs his sperm will return to normal in 64 days. SSRIs do not cause permanent irreversible sperm damage, so far as we know.
