Becoming Father with PFS

Hey guys,

i have some hope again in my life and wanted to ask here people with pfs who got children after pfs. Are they healthy? Any abnormalities? Can i safely have children with pfs ? :confused:

I’ve had PFS 20 years and my son is 7 he’s fit and healthy and already interested in girls. More so than his Dad. I think everything will be ok

I’m unaware of any issues with passing this on.

I guess these epigenetic issues are not passed on or they are not epigenetic in nature. Only god knows

I have a boy 4yrs and girl 2yrs old, both are healthy. I was worried something would pass on to them too but was sure early on that they were fine. They sleep normal , tons of emotions, regular kids! I dont think you need to worry bro.

I was worried too once I realised the full extent of this disease. I would watch my son for any signs in behaviour, sleep, development. He is very healthy my sperm at the time had 13 years worth of pfs. As said this is epigenetic which isn’t passed on. Thankfully this is one cruelty we are not subjected too. We can all still be Dad’s, the main purpose in our being !

This is the thread I have been needing. Glad to hear so many sufferers have happy, healthy kids.

I know a father of three who’s had pfs for 20+ years and had his kids after getting sick. All are healthy and well.

I have read a reddit post about a guy taking propecia, then he stopped it to have kids and now his son has hypospadia. Sounds related to low dht
