Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified physician. I can help you today.

Disulfiram has been linked in some studies to impact the ability of sperm to swim so may lower fertility. But there is no negative impact on a pregnancy if she does get pregnant.

I hope this is reassuring and helpful. Let me know if I can clarify anything.
