The Effect Of Stroke On Male Fertility?
If there is a 59 year old man who has a stroke and diabetes, the half of his body is paralyzed but the legs are 80% good for 1 year, while his wife is 34 years old. is it possible for his wife to get pregnant? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Basically, a stroke will not directly interfere with a man's sexual function. A man who has a stroke will not experience disturbances in his sex hormones, can still have libido (high sexual appetite), can still experience erections and ejaculate, can still have normal sexual intercourse.
However, sometimes a stroke can affect sexual function indirectly. For example, stress that arises due to post-stroke disability, decreased self-esteem, comorbid diseases that can cause stroke (such as diabetes), or the use of certain drugs (for example certain high blood pressure drugs), can cause disturbances in sexual function. However, as long as the sexual functions mentioned above are not disturbed, the man can still impregnate a woman.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
