I am taking baraclude for 3 years. My wife and I are thinking to have a baby. One doctor says it's not safe to do this while still on medication. Another one states the oposite. I looked for studies but all I could find was refferring to situations in which women are undrer treatment. Nothing on men under treatment. So I am quite confuse now. Is it or is it not a problem to have a baby while the man is under treatment?
I have been on entecavir 0.5mg for more than 6 years and during the treatment I and my wife have a baby boy and baby girl and they are now 4 and 2 years old and are perfectly healthy. This is just my personal experience and hope this helps. I remember that I did ask my doctor about having children and he said it is ok for male taking entecavir.
Thank you very much for your replies. It is a big step forward for me.
My doctor still claims it is not safe but she does not seem to be so sure of it, if confrunted. I start to believe she is not well informed on the matter.
