Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.



Spinal cord disease often causes ejaculatory disturbances. You'll need an assessment. Problems like this may not be always curable. You may or may not be able to return to your normal, pre-transverse myelitis state. However, there are machines available that can help you ejaculate for fertilization purposes. These machines induce ejaculation when applied, and the semen thus collected can be used to inseminate the partner, or for Invitro fertilization-intracytoplasmic-sperm injection (IVF-ICSI), etc.



Hope I have answered your query.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
