If male is on sulfasalazine medication and success to achieve pregnancy to his partner, then is there any chance to affect the baby?
Sulfasalazine is possibly best stopped while trying to get pregnant. You should discuss this with your doctor.
This from https://www.drugs.com/pro/sulfasalazine-delayed-release-tablets.html
"... Oligospermia and infertility have been observed in men treated with sulfasalazine; however, withdrawal of the drug appears to reverse these effects."
(Oligospermia - low sperm count)
Are you asking is it safe for the male to take if you get pregnant? Trying to get pregnant might be difficult if he's on it. After that it won't matter if he takes it.
