Disclaimer

can high dose solumedrol (methylprednisolone) treatment affect male fertility? please explain.

Dr. Jill Edison
Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis
Steroid side effects: Even high dose solumedrol (methylprednisolone) is not known to cause infertility. Other immunosuppressives can cause infertility. Why do you receive this treatment? The underlying cause or disease process you might have could also cause this. Need to check in with the doctor giving you solumedrol (methylprednisolone).
