Antidepressants and semen destruction

#1
Hello. I am 25 years old, male, and I feel that I suffer from depression, obsessive thinking and social anxiety. I read on the internet that antidepressants such as SSRIs cause decreased sperm concentration and motility, and damaged DNA in semen and generally fertility problems. Do you know if this is true and if it is permanent destruction of the semen? Thank you very much.

I’m not sure about sperm production but SSRIs do reduce sex drive.
