I am trying to get pregnant. A friend offered his sperm. My concern is that he has bipolar. Could that be passed on to the child?

Yes. It can be hereditary.

Why do you wish to be a single parent? How old are you?

If you are truly considering a sperm donor, I would get a couple medical history. Bipolar is very hereditary.

My mother and father both have mental issues and it was passed so lovingly down to me. Please don't do that to a potential child. Being bipolar sucks.
