Dear Leech

It is unlikely that you boyfriends disease will effect your chances of conception as I am not aware any relationship between Van Willebrands disease (VWD) and sperm pathology. However there is a possibility that the condition may be transmitted to your offspring, particularly in the female population, as Van Willebrands is much more common in that population.
