Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am reviewing your question and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. This is most likely occurring a side effect of Tamsulosin. This drug is known to cause a problem with sperm production. Although this is not very common it's a reported side effect. Other possible causes can be a prostate infection, obstruction to the duct of the prostate etc. You should see a urologist to get this solved but I reassure you that this is not indicative of anything serious and you are going to be alright after the treatment. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards

Thank you for the response, I undertook a prostate test for cancer 3 months ago and thank god everything was OK, because I was going to the toilet 2/3 times during the night that my chemist thought it might be an enlarged prostate and suggested seeing my doctor for these tablets, my doctor agreed and now I have been taking them for approx., 9 days, should I stop taking these tablets?
