Information for health professionals
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating neurological condition that can impact on every aspect of the injured person’s life, including their reproductive health and fertility.
SCI causes significant disruption to male fertility and reproductive health. Although female fertility is generally not as affected, women with SCI may still face challenges during pregnancy related to self-care and daily functioning, as well as labour and delivery.
