In both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, men might experience fertility problems. When a man has an overactive thyroid, he may produce sperm with poor movement, called low motility. This could interfere with his ability to father a child, according to a study published in June 2004 in "Best Practice and Research: Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism." These changes in sperm are reversed in most cases when treatment brings thyroid hormones back to normal.
