Men contribute to 50% of all incidences of infertility amongst couples and this figure is rising. Infertility is often regarded as a taboo subject and rarely discussed in the public domain, however 1 in 7 couples now experience trouble conceiving and sperm counts have declined over 50% in the last 40 years.
Having spoken with many men and having published research on the subject, it is known that men are generally overlooked in the fertility equation. Men frequently report feeling that they are little more than a sperm donor in the process rather than a prospective father. This dynamic is not good enough and men need to be heard and supported, thats what i can offer.
Sperm is delicate and its integrity, functional ability and fertilisation capacity can be affected by several factors including; diet, lifestyle, environment, stress, infections, genetics or structural abnormalities such as a varicocele. The good news is that sperm can respond very well to positive nutrition and lifestyle changes within 3 months.
