It’s November and that means it’s a great time to talk about men’s health – especially your fertility health!
Today is International Men’s Day (19 Nov) and it’s also Movember – both important events that shine the spotlight on male health and wellbeing.
So, as it’s all about looking after yourself this month – have you ever thought about checking on your fertility?
Your fertility might not be the first thing you think of when you consider the usual health tests you might have, but there has never been a better time to look at your fertility too.
Male fertility was a huge focus of last month’s Fertility Week, with lots of stories in the media about men facing fertility issues, raising awareness of just how common it is.
Get a fertility check with Manchester Fertility: What’s involved?
It’s actually really simple, quick and easy to get your sperm checked. You don’t need to see your GP first for a referral, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. All you need to do is make an appointment with us for a semen analysis.
A semen analysis is where we take a detailed look at your sperm under the microscope in our laboratory. We look at key fertility factors – how well your sperm moves, your sperm count and sperm shape. Plus other qualities too, to give us an in-depth and clear indication of your fertility health.
We’ll then produce a report that tells you everything you need to know about your sperm. We can talk you through your report over the phone, or via Zoom with one of our fertility experts, whatever suits you best. We’ll explain exactly what your results mean.
Why get checked out?
It’s great to take a proactive approach to your fertility just as you would with your general health.
Your sperm test can help you make informed choices about family planning and help you learn about protecting your fertility too.
Your lifestyle choices – being overweight, smoking, drinking, and recreational or performance drugs – can all impact your fertility. We can help you understand how best to prevent future fertility problems and how to optimise your sperm health.
