Peyronie's And Fertility
Can Men With Peyronie's Disease Have Children?
Questions about Peyronie's and fertility are understandable common among men with Peyronie's and their partners.
Does Peyronie's disease affect fertility? Does Peyronie's affect sperms quality? Can you father a child despite having Peyronie's disease?
Fathering a child is all about the sperm, not the shape of the penis. Peyronie's disease does not affect the quality of the sperm.
As long as your sperm is healthy and you can have sexual intercourse and ejaculate, you should be able to father a child (with or without Peyronie's disease).
However, if your Peyronie's disease is affecting your ability to have sexual intercourse then you might need help.
If you are suffering from Erectile Dysfunction then there are ways to help you deal with it.
Common treatments include medication, like Viagra, or medical devices, like penis vacuum pumps (VED).
If your penis is too deformed to allow you to have successful intercourse, then you will have to seek professional help. If this is the case, you might want to consider Penis Surgery, despite the possible risk involved but erectile dysfunction and impotence are unfortunately real threat after such an invasive operation.
Another option (if your penis is too deformed to have successful intercourse) is to undergo infertility treatment. If the sperm is healthy, then artificial insemination (AI) could be all it takes.
If there is issue with the sperm quality, then ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection) might be required, i.e. an IVF (in vitro fertilization) procedure in which a single sperm is injected directly into an egg. Still, the quality of the sperm would have nothing to do with your Peyronie's disease.
The bottom line is that there is no reason why Peyronie's should affect your fertility. Peyronie's does not affect the sperm production or the sperm quality and therefore not your fertility as such.
So if you are having sexual intercourse and been trying to have a baby for over a year without a success, then you and your partner should seek professional help. But it has nothing to do with your Peyronie's disease.
Men with Peyronie's disease can father a child as long as they can have sexual intercourse, ejaculate and the sperm is healthy.
