In brief: Unknown

Its not proven that Colchicine itself cause male infertility.
Some men on Colchicine may have difficulty getting their partners pregnant but that may be related to the disease they are being treated for not the medicine itself. Majority of men on col. Have normal fertility. There is no specific duration that you have to wait. I would arbitrarily recommend 3 months for new sperm to develop.
