Paraplegia can often cause problems with erection and ejaculation. There are several options to obtain sperm cells in such cases.

The couple should be advised by a good team which is experienced in consulting paraplegics with a desire to have children of their own. Fortunately, nowadays there are good chances for paraplegics to become a father.


Treatment options for paraplegics

The sperm cells can sometimes be obtained from the bladder. Moreover, an ejaculation can be triggered via electrostimulation. Another possibility is to gain sperm cells surgically through a testicle biopsy or epididymal aspiration.

The urologist can elaborate on the alternatives in special cases. Furthermore, andrology specialists familiar with the mentioned methods are available for consultations.
