Dear Stephan

In my opinion it was certainly ill advised to use such potent contraceptive/anti-androgen medication. I would advise you to have a semen analysis done as soon as possible. This will in essence give a good indication of the extent of any adverse effects if any that the medication may have caused thus far.
