This week is Men’s Health Week, from 14th-20th June, which aims to raise awareness of the health issues that particularly affect men. It encourages all men to learn about the different health conditions they may experience in life and how important it is to communicate with others.
What’s on your mind?
One of the most common problems affecting men is mental well-being. Often, this could be due to concerns about fertility issues. With an estimated 1 in 7 couples having difficulty conceiving.
This can be made worse by the fact that many men are reluctant to discuss their problems and often think it’s something that only happens to other people. This builds a wall of silence, leaving men who are experiencing the problem feeling isolated.
At Manchester Fertility we take positive action to ensure that men with fertility problems don’t feel this way, but instead feel fully understood and supported.
Fertility issues can affect anyone
Did you know that male fertility is actually the most common reason for couples to seek fertility treatment?
Typical issues affecting male infertility include:
- Blockages or absence of tubes affecting the transport of sperm
- Issues with sperm production resulting in no sperm, low sperm count or abnormal sperm shape
- Hormonal problems, present at birth or caused by lifestyle issues such as steroid use, which affect sperm production
A number of male celebrities have gone public about how their fertility issues has impacted their lives – and they’ve urged other men to speak about it.
In most cases, fertility issues can be resolved with the right diagnosis, support and treatment. So, if you’re worried about fertility or know someone who is, Men’s Health Week is the perfect time to take a closer look at the issues around it and how Manchester Fertility can help.
Male Fertility Assessment
If you and your partner have been trying for a baby and are having trouble conceiving, a male fertility assessment could put your mind at rest. It can also be helpful if you’re planning to start a family soon and want to check your current fertility health.
Our male fertility assessments are confidential and can involve just yourself or you and your partner. The assessment will be carried out by our specialist fertility team at our award-winning clinic.
As part of the consultation process, a sample of your sperm will be analysed to determine your ability to conceive and identify any potential problems. The doctor will then advise if any action is needed.
We’ve been creating families for over 35 years and are leaders in our field. From our transparent, patient-focused approach to our warm and friendly expert team, we are committed to your wellbeing and provide the highest standard of care possible.
Male Reproductive Health
Manchester Fertility has its own dedicated reproductive health service for men, providing expert medical advice and support. Its specific purpose is to advise on the different options available for those who are seeking fertility treatment or planning to start a family soon.
Our fertility specialists can help you understand:

- How to maintain your sexual health – preventing STIs and contraception
- Sexual dysfunction – erectile and ejaculatory disorders
Wherever possible, we try to prevent problems arising in the first place through a programme of screening, advice, awareness and education.
