My husband takes a lot of medicine mostly for high blood pressure for the past 12 years. Is it possible that medicine could hinder pregnancy? We do not use any protection, i'm 44 and I have not been able to get pregnant even though I still have periods?

My husband takes a lot of medicine mostly for high blood pressure for the past 12 years. Is it possible that medicine could hinder pregnancy? We do not use any protection, i'm 44 and I have not been able to get pregnant even though I still have periods?

Doubtful: The medicines are probably not the reason. Even though you still get your periods it is more difficult for women to concieve in their 40's and up. Your husband may also have a low sperm count or low testosterone. You may want to have him checked for that first and talk to your doctor about fertility treatment if he is fine with his fertility. ...Read more
