It doesn't effect fertility, but if you get pregnant you'll most likely have to taper off of it. Talk to your gyne about it.
Some side effects of tramadol may not be reported. Always consult your doctor or health care specialist for medical advice. You may also report side effects to the FDA.

Hi, i don't think it is yet reported but yes Tramadol can affect your fertility. When i was taking it my periods stopped for over a year! So it would be a good idea to discontinue use if you can.
Hello jessejcollby. I agree with Delila. I phoned one of my brothers (a doctor)and confirmed. Best of wishes pledge

I have been on Tramadol 50mg 2x/day for 9 years and I got pregnant while taking it. I did stop at ovulation though each month while trying per my obs recommendation and then did not take again until post nursing.
The long time use didn't seem to impact conception for me.
