What's the deal with TTC if the man is taking SSRIs?

I have read the leaflet and it says that a woman should not take it when pregnant or BF, but no info about whether there will be any effects on conception or the baby if the man is taking it at the time of conception. Drs appt in 2.5 weeks, would prefer not to wait that long! Anyone know? DP is worried that it will have some kind of effect on the baby's mental health and I would like to be able to reassure him.

it is perfectly safe for the baby don't worry. Baby doesn't share blood stream with DH like you do.

Many women take SSRI's and have a safe pregnancy.
