Hi Anon,

Thank you for your question! While doing some research for you, I found nothing that states that HGH will affect the ability to conceive. As a matter of fact, very few side effects, such as headaches have been noted for adults on HGH. Remember that HGH is a hormone naturally produced by the pituitary gland and is needed for growth. As long as your HGH levels are monitored by a doctor, then you should remain in good health and no change in your reproductive system should occur due to the Growth Hormone.

All the best,

Rosa
