Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a gay, married to a woman and had sex with my wife. My question is can my sperms impregnate my wife? If it happens, my children will be straight or gay?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, even if you have homosexual orientation even then you will be able to make your wife pregnant. No need to worry for that provided your sperms count is normal.

Homosexuality does not have direct genetic inheritance. So, no need to get worried for that too.
