A 60-year-old female asked:

Can hypothyroidism affect fertility in men and can it also affect the offspring of such fathers?

Hypothyroidism: Can affect a male's fertility but it usually has to be significantly abnormal to do so.
Dr. David Sneid
Endocrinology 41 years experience
Yes: Hypothyroidism can lower fertility in both men and women. The good news is that it returns to whatever their "normal" was with appropriate replacement w/brand name t4.
