Infertility and Depression in men

Does psychological health (depression) affect a man’s ability to get a woman pregnant?
Arlinda Lindsay Says ...
Depression and antidepressants can affect a man's sexual arousal and performance. Stress can lower sperm count. Therefore, finding healthy ways of coping with stress would be helpful. Exercising, meditation, journaling, and talking things out are a few ways of coping with stress and depression. Often, men hold in their feelings, emotions, and do not deal with underlying issues that are causing stress or depression. I would suggest visiting a physician to rule out any of medical condition that could lower sperm count or lower arousal. As well as talking to a therapist if needed. I hope this helps.
