Is it normal to be saddened/depressed at infertility

I have Klinefelters XXY sex chromosome type. I cant have children under no amount of science. I’m sad that I can’t continue my family bloodline from my end, I have a brother who can still have kids. But the thought of losing out on getting my genetic code into another generation is disappointing to say the least. I know adoption is always there but there’s not the extra umph that it would bring. Also the fact that I automatically just lost my inate animal purpose for exsisting.

Is It Normal?

  • I don't think reproduction is much of a reason for living.

    • It is the point of life for all living things. The primary objective anyways.

  • I had to look up klinefelters. I am so sorry for you, man. You aren't alone... that is the only consolation I can offer.

  • I understand where you are coming from. Especially being male it really is wired subconsciously in the brain to keep the lineage going.

  • Sad for you, but if you're seeing your main purpose in life is to reproduce that's a choice. There are lots of other reasons to be alive and it doesn't look like a good idea genetically for you to reproduce anyway.

    I've reproduced once, but it was never my primary purpose in life: I guess I'm oldfashioned, I just want to leave the world a bit better than it was when I came into it. What's more, I know I have.

  • Instead of having kids, why not get into politics, become President and rule the country? You could vent your frustrations by firing off a few nukes.

    • I’ve liked politics but not enough to start out of the get go. Have me acquire some capital and see where I go.

  • It is normal. I have chosen to have no kids either(due to family quarrels ).
