Purbac and Generic disorder
Jul 16, 2013

Does purbac cause sperm disorders? I have been pregnant 3 times and got miscarriages the 3 times and my partner is on purbac tablets. I read somewhere that men on purbac tablets should not make babies.. Can you verify if this information is true or not. I dont wanna keep on trying if i will get a miscarriage every time.

Response from Dr. Henry

There has not been a consistent link between use of Purbac (antibiotic combination of sulfa/trimethoprim) and infertility/high risk for miscarriage. Because Purbac may interfere with folic acid metabolism, it should be used earlier during pregnancy only if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk .Men taking Purbac usually retain their fertility. There may be unusual cases of extremee sensitivity to Purbac but again in most cases fertility is not impacted. KH
