MTS and infertility



Is there a correlation between Mesial Temporal Sclerosis and infertility?


There is not a specific association of mesial temporal sclerosis and infertility, but patients with epilepsy do have a higher rate of infertility. The causes may include epilepsy medications or the seizures may have effects on the release of hormones that are important for pregnancy.
