No.: Methylprednisolone does not in any way affect fertility. It is a highly effective anti-inflammatory steroid medication. However, long term use of any steroids can have many serious side effects. In short-term use it is generally very safe. Never stop a medication on your own without first discussing your concerns or side effects with your doctor. Doing so can be dangerous to your health.
