I do appreciate your concerns. Yes, in animal studies Lyrica causes decreased fertility in doses much higher than maximum recommended dose in humans. This means that the dose prescribed to you should not cause any fertility issues. Also, at times the drug may cause side effects at lower doses. So, if you are to continue on Lyrica, it would also be best to plan parenthood early. You can also be switched to another drug. However, yes, please ask your doctor regarding this.
Trying non-drug treatments like physiotherapy, exercises, hydrotherapy, and acupressure along with pain medication reduces the dose of pain medication you are taking. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

Thank you very much doc. I highly appreciate it.
