To put this into perspective: Before you start to panic, you should however notice that most adverse effects were observed in in vitro experiments, where the cells / organs were literally flooded with extracts from the respective plants. I doubt you can become infertile or suffer any permanent loss in libido / testosterone from any of the aforementioned supplements.
