Huntington's disease, as you

Huntington's disease, as you know, is a debilitating fatal autosomal dominant disease that has its onset in mid-life.

An article, "Estimation of fertility and fitness in Huntington disease in New England," in the June 1989 American Journal of medical genetics indicates that fertiltiy is not affected. However, because Huntington's is a genetic disease, you will want to meet with a genetic counselor to determine the best option for you specifically.
