Men often develop infertility, due to the inability to ejaculate, secondary to MS.
There are no longitudinal reports of semen quality in the male MS population.
This is a single case report of a couple who achieved two live births from sperm obtained with electro-ejaculation: the first by intrauterine insemination and the second by in vitro fertilisation
Multiple sampling of sperm showed no progressive decline in semen parameters across 26 semen retrievals performed over 7 tears.
Conclusion: MS does not appear to cause progressive decline in semen quality.

“This case report provides some hope for having a family for male MS’ers rendered impotent as a result of their disease.”
