Dr. Parviz Kavoussi publishes study showing Ibuprofen does not have an adverse impact on semen analysis parameters

A recent study was published which raised questions on whether men taking Ibuprofen had diminished fertility potential and testicular function.  Dr. Kavoussi states, “The study looked a number of factors but did not actually assess the impact of Ibuprofen on semen analysis parameters, which was what were interested in knowing to help guide our patients, especially considering how commonly Ibuprofen is taken by men during their fertility years”.  Dr. Kavoussi published a study in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics that assessed this very question and found no significant effect of Ibuprofen on men’s semen analysis parameters.
