Today we are going to talk about all things male fertility - sperm, semen, men’s health. All of it!
In my clinical practice, most of my patients are women and people with eggs and ovaries. I would say close to 90% of the people I work with. Yet, the data shows that of all infertility cases, approximately 40–50% is due to “male factor” infertility.
And yet, 90% of the people seeking clinical fertility care from me are women and people with eggs and ovaries. They are doing all of the work (going to acupuncture, taking the supplements, eating healthfully AND they are carrying the vast majority of the emotional labour in the process. They are managing doctors' appointments and schedules, attending appointments, doing research, getting therapy and so much more.
I think that's really interesting…and is likely to be rooted in a lack of education. And that’s what this episode today is all about.
