In brief: Blood pressure meds

One of the most common types of blood pressure medications in use today are calcium channel blockers - amlodipine, verapamil, Nifedipine are just some examples.
Many doctors who prescribe this medication are not aware that they can cause a reversible male infertility. Sperm heads contain many calcium channels that help them to fertilize the egg. These drugs can block fertilization.
