You can have children. You just need to stick to your diet during pregnancy. It is very important to do so because not following your diet may cause phe build up in the unborn child-causing brain damage. You should talk with you dietician/doctor/OBGYN. I am not an expert, but I have a daughter with Hyperphe, so this is something I have been concerned about for her.
