Gilenya and Erectile Disfunction

Since being diagnosed I've had a varying mild-to-moderate case of ED and anorgasmia. I tried cialis and viagra to treat, and while they certainly worked, I always found it difficult to get the timing right - which just added more stress to a stressful symptom.

Gilenya & Pregnancy

I've been off Gilenya for a few months, in the hopes of starting a family.

We've been unsuccessful thus far. I've been fine, off the medicine, and then I wake up this morning and portions of the left side of my face are numb.

Has anyone on here been successful in having a baby after having been on Gilenya?
