Hi. 35 year old male in reasonably good health. History of migraines, ADHD, and anxiety. Take Wellbutrin xl daily. Ibuprofen, fioricet and maxalt as needed for migraines. My wife and I are starting to think about baby number 2. I've been smoking or vaporizing marijuana daily for the last couple if months and prior to that I had been using once to twice a week for a few years. How concerned should I be about the effect of pot on my gametes? I've read that it can degrade DNA as well as lead to infertility. I guess my real question is, should I stop smoking/vaping while we are trying to conceive? If so, how long until my sperms are healthy again? Thanks in advance!
