Unclear, but...: A 10-day use of metronidazole would unlikely exert any significant adverse effects to sperm motility, and for getting,conception, a duration of 10 days should carry no realistic impact to long-term planning for conception. For better care, collect & bring all your concerns to the attending for further counseling. More on LIfe Reality? To http://formefirst.com/onLifeBasics.html. Best wish to health
