Response from Dr. Henry
There is little information available about whether Atripla has a direct impact on semen volume or quality. I have not generally had patients report that problem to me. Being HIV+ often results on an increased rate of sexual performance issues related to both psychologic (increased worry/stress) and medical (nutrition/hormone/side effect of drugs et cetera) factors. A discussion with your HIV specialist and possibly a referral to urologist or sex therapist can be helpful in some situations. KH
