Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified physician. I can help you today.
Valium has been shown at least in animal studies to have a negative effect on sperm movement and the length of time they stay alive. The researchers were able to tell exactly why this happened because of the way the cells were damaged. Human sperm has the same structures that control movement and life so it is highly suspected that human sperm also is affected by Valium this way. For sperm, it usually takes about 3 months for recovery from damage caused by various medications. This doesn't mean you would for sure have trouble getting pregnant, but if she's not pregnant within 1 year of trying with sex 2=3 times weekly, the medications could be the problem.
I hope this information was helpful.
