Spinal Cord Injury Fertility
A spinal cord injury is a devastating event in a man’s life. Many spinal cord injured men are told that they are infertile because of their injury. This is usually not true. Men are often unable to ejaculate after spinal cord injury but their sperm production is usually normal.
