As far as I know there is no counterindication regarding Enbrel and male fertility.
There is no known mechanism by which Enbrel would be able to affect it.
Enbrel isn't a small molecule drug and cannot get absorbed intact into sperm or egg cells as far as anybody knows (these cells have no known receptors for Enbrel), so it should have no effect on the embryo. Enbrel is similar to an antibody, of which we all have a unique profile of thousands of different types in our circulation anyway depending on our history of exposure to pathogens, vaccines, and allergens. There are conditions where specific antibodies (not Enbrel) produced in large quantities in the body of a woman can attack her fetus, but obviously, even in the unlikely case that Enbrel might be harmful to a fetus, there is simply no way in which large molecules like Enbrel circulating in her husband's body cannot possibly attack the fetus.
But talk to a knowledgeable doctor about this.
