Klinefelters: Most of the time these men have difficulty having children to do low sperm counts. Some klinefelter men are mosaics meaning only a percentage of their cells are abnormal with an extra x chromosome. These men may have an easier time. One should consult a geneticist before considering children as they are at high risk of having babies with sex-chromosome abnormalities.
