What can a man do to improve his fertility? Why is the focus of such discussions usually on women? Why is male infertility a taboo subject for many? What’s it like to be a woman and told your partner has fertility issues? I’m delighted to publish this blog post, authored by Natalie Silverman who produces The Fertility Podcast.
Natalie tackles all these issues in this post. I feel this is such a vital subject and one that doesn’t get the attention it deserves, so please do have a read, listen to some episodes of the podcast and if you know someone affected by these issues, please share the post.
I can only think of one conversation I’ve had with a man experiencing fertility issues. It was a brief discussion. Considering the guy was a stereotypical, football-mad, successful, driven, hard drinking bloke, it was, nonetheless, an open conversation.
A new survey into the subject of male infertility shows this chap was something of a rarity. Released to coincide with National Fertility Awareness Week (2-8 November, 2015), the survey of 2,000 men has found us guys have real trouble discussing the issue. What’s possibly more worrying is a general ignorance to towards what causes infertility. View Post
