How is the fertility of Fragile X males? Are they fertile or not at all?

Does anybody know, just curious . Thanks.


Found this:

Seem to be fertile

Individuals who have the Fragile X premutation have a higher risk of having children with a larger number of repeats. This is because the larger the number of CGG repeats, the more unstable the FMR1 gene becomes. Thus, there can be a family with no history of Fragile X syndrome in which it suddenly appears in a number of offspring
