Very Important question please answer

My boyfriend and I recently found out he has Parkinson's and I was curious to know if we could still have kids or not.

Re: Very Important question please answer

Your question can be interpreted two ways.

1) If you are wondering if it is physically possible to have children as a Parkinson patient, the answer is yes. Erectile dysfunction can happen in PD, but if your husband is newly diagnosed, this is less likely to be an issue. If it is an issue, a medicine like Viagara should work well.

2) If you are worried about passing the disease onto kids, most of the time Parkinson's disease does not run in families. If your husband is the only one in his family who has PD, it most likely is not an inherited form of the disease.
