    Please have answers..

    My partner and i have been together for two years. Weve been trying to have a child for a year. He has addisons disease. He has to take medicine 3 times a day. Does Addisons disease make you infertile in men? Please have answers, im desperate..

    Addison's doesn't automatically make a man infertile, nor does taking cortisone.

    He may be infertile anyway, as are many men who don't have Addison's. But this is one of the cheaper/easier fertility tests for a doctor.

    Hey there,

    How are you today? As far as I know (and I have done A LOT of reading since my dx back in November), AD is not directly proven to cause infertility in men. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't perhaps be tested/sperm count to rule any issues out though. We are all created uniquely and our bodies work in weird and wonderful ways so the only real way of truly knowing is to go see your doctor or fertility specialist

    I wish you all the best!
