I did not see in any of the medical literature that eltroxin's side effects cause infertility or ED (erectile dysfunction). Do you still have the patient information leaflet that is included with your medication? Be sure to keep one copy of this, as it details all of the possible side effects that you should be aware of.

Possible side effects for eltroxin (levothyroxine) may include (please refer to your doctor or pharmacist for the most updated information):
"* weight loss
* tremor
* headache
* nausea
* vomiting
* diarrhea
* stomach cramps
* nervousness
* irritability
* insomnia
* excessive sweating
* increased appetite
* fever
* changes in menstrual cycle
* sensitivity to heat
* temporary hair loss, particularly in children during the first month of therapy"
