There is no data available on the effect of rifampin on human fertility. Fertility studies in animals for clarithromycin have shown no problems.
Ideally it would be safer to wait until your husband stops his medication. If he is taking these long term then you should discuss this further with your doctor. All the best.

There is nothing in the info from the FDA on either drug that suggests it would be unsafe if the male is on it. Clarithromycin isn't advised in a pregnant female however.
