With the ever-increasing usage of antidepressants in the world, I thought it would be interesting to use antidepressants, as both adults and teenagers consume them. In fact, more teenagers start using antidepressants as early as high school, and it is possible that hindered fertility rate could be a long-term effect. Therefore, over the last several weeks, I’ve tested whether Paroxetine, an antidepressant, could reduce fertility and worsen the health of progeny; then, could natural supplements, specifically Red Clover, counteract that impact?
After several trials of data, my conclusions proved me partially right AND partially wrong. My hypothesis was correct in the sense that Paroxetine decreases fertility, while Paroxetine WITH Red Clover together would increase it. However, surprisingly, neither Red Clover nor Paroxetine affected the health of the progeny at all. Even more shocking, Red Clover ALONE negatively affected fertility, which was the exact opposite of what I had thought would happen.
(: It’s been a blast, guys. Here’s to everyone who made this a great adventure!
