weird question, but I think I heard it from a herbal specialist once... He was either speakig of accutane or antibiotics (prescribed for acne) in general. I don't remember which, but if it was the latter, I wanted to know if drugs like tetracyclin, erythromycin, doxyclicin, etc increase the chance of infertility?

No not to anyones knowledge. Antibiotics (Doxycycline, Tetracycline) – prescribed to each partner during an IVF (invitro fertilization) cycle, to control bacteria that may affect implantation in the female and sperm quality in the male during treatment of infertility.
