DH has a congenital heart condition which he is on various meds for which he started since we conceived DD 17mo. Aside from of course asking his doctor (though it is months till next heart appointment) does anyone know of a good online resource to check is any of them might affect his sperm? He is on daily Valsartan, Tarasemide, Eplrenerone. TIA.

You can check in the patient information leaflet on the electronic medicines compendium (type that into Google and you'll get the webpage). Enter your product name and you'll get a list. You need the 'PIL' (patient information leaflet) as the SPC is more detailed, scientific, and not aimed at patients.
