Infertility/Fertility/fewer when trying to conceive



    I am 38 yrs old trying to conceive.This cycle we were planning a clomid +injectable cycle.Today is my 5th day of menses but yesterday my husband got 101degree fever with chills for a day only so he is taking 200mg of antibiotic for 3days.sir please advice if you think we should continue our plan ?If not for how many cycle?
Does having fever for  a day affects the sperm?
         thank you


I'm sorry to hear your husband had a fever and wasn't feeling well.  The likelihood is that a one day fever, especially when treated quickly, would not affect sperm to a significant degree.

Best in success!
