Neither actually: If you are talking about a group a strep infection, such as strep throat, an antibiotic in the penicillin family (penicillin, amoxicillin, etc.) is the preferred treatment. Otherwise a cephalosporin such as Cephalexin (keflex) is a good alternative.

None that last.: Any significant infection will decrease sperm production, and yes it is listed as an uncommon side effect for antibiotics including cipro, (ciprofloxacin) but it does not have any permanent side effect on sprematogenesis.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Should cipro (ciprofloxacin) be used when stepping on a rusty nail?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Danny Proffitt
Family Medicine 43 years experience
One choice: A nail through the shoe could have pseudomonas as the bacteria causing severe infections. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) at 750 mg twice a day for 6 weeks is recommended if there is bone infection. At first onset of the puncture, lesser doses may be used and other antibiotics may be chosen. This would also depend on your age and condition. This injury should be seen by your doctor and treated appropriately.
