Novantrone and fertility?

When my boyfriend was diagnosed with MS in his early 20's, he was treated with Novantrone to get the disease under control. He had 4 treatments over the course of a year.

Now he is in his late 20's and we have discussed wanting children in near future. I'm concerned that this treatment could have made him sterile.
I've found a little information here and there stating this drug can make women infertile, but not any information on its affects on men.
Does anyone have a personal experience to share, or a good article to refer me to?
I need to know how Novantrone affects fertility in MEN.
We really want to be able to have children and any information shared would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Novantrone and fertility?

The only way to check is to have his sperm count/mobility etc checked.
That will tell you whether he has been affected x (hopefully not)
