Core Tip In men with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), factors such as surgery, medications, disease activity, and poor nutritional status are thought to contribute to infertility. Surgery with rectal incision is associated with sexual dysfunction (e.g., erectile dysfunction, anejaculation, and retrograde ejaculation). Among medications, sulfasalazine causes reversible qualitative and quantitative semen abnormalities. No other medications seem to affect male fertility significantly. There are limited data on the effects of paternal exposure to IBD medications on pregnancy outcomes, but no significant increase in fetal risk has been noted except for thiopurines. Patients should be appropriately informed of possible effects of paternal drug exposure.
