Can dietary supplements negatively effect male fertility?
Hi doc I am currently using GNC Total Lean Burn 60 Dietary supplement as part of my exercise routine to increase calorie burning. I am concerned that it might have an adverse effect on my fertility. Should I stop using it while me and my wife are trying to fall pregnant?

Dear David,

From the ingredients contained in the supplement it appears that is would be okay to take this while trying to conceive. However there is a fairly high caffeine content in it so you need to just be aware of this should you also consume a lot of other caffeinated drinks etc.
