Epilepsy & infertility:can NHS pay for it?

Post by Anie » Fri Mar 23, 2007 1:00 pm


Im from London (UK).My husband is 33 and he has epilepsy since he was a child.I know that the antiepilectic drugs that he's been taking does afects his fertility and sexual stimulation.He can't get erection.Not even with the help of viagra type drug.I think he can't also ejaculate.

Does anybody knows if due to epilepsy we can get free treatment thru NHS?Or any other information about it?

We haven't contact our GP or any fertility clinic as yet.

Any information will be very helpfull

Thank you.
