I am nephrotic and have been taking prednisone since birth. I am already 23 years old. I've been trying to make a baby but until now it hasn't come true. Can I still make a baby?

I'm a man. And I found out that it has more chance to be impotent if you've been taking steroid. And the other medicine which I used to take namedly saytosan..but I'm not sure about the spelling only sound's like because at that time I was still a child.
i dont see why not, but to be sure you should ask your dr or see a specialist, taking prednisone that long im surprised ur dr lets u take it 4 such a long time as it had terrible side affects. u should check with a good dr b4 using it much longer unless ur life depends on it.. good luck.
I have suffered too from nephrotic syndrome since age 4. I am now 37 years old. I have been on prednisolone for ever! I have had 4 babies whilst on this drug and actually found I was less nephrotic during the pregnancies. I have 4 beautiful girls who are fit and fully healthy. So go for it don't let this syndrome put a hold on your life.
