Pass it on: Sons of infertile men may be next

MSNBC - Pass it on: Sons of infertile men may be next

It seems that male-factor infertility may be genetic. This means that men who had children with the aid of fertility treatments could very likely be passing on their problems to their sons. The article goes on to say that it's possible that these sons of infertile fathers may be rendered completely sterile. The men quoted in this article don't seem to think this is a problem. Technology will advance and their sons will be able to have children in the same manner they did. Perhaps. But who can really blame the fathers for trying to make themselves feel better? The alternative would have been to not have children, a reality that many of us face and most attempt to circumvent.

The good news: daughters of infertile men who use fertility treatments don't seem to have any adverse effects.
