Living well with lupus

Can men with lupus still have children?

Yes. Men with lupus can have children. However, certain medications, such as cyclophosphamide, can affect sperm counts. Talk with your doctor about your fertility health prior to conceiving, to discuss any medications you may be taking for your lupus and any potential impact on fertility associated with them.
