I'm not a doctor, but I believe it is possible for minute amounts of medication to show up in ejaculate...don't quote me on that though...
I have even heard of a very rare instance where a woman caught a virus from her husband through intercourse. It was a rare disease from a third-world country. Anywho, so I guess it's possible but I imagine it would only be trace amounts.

This is an interesting question. Drugs can be transfered in breast milk. I recently read where estrogen from HRT was causing reproductive abnormalities in fish down stream from sewer plants. Why couldn't drugs be transferred in semen? I would like to hear from an expert on this.
