Manchester Fertility | Men's Health Week

This week is Men’s Health Week, from 12th-18th June, which aims to raise awareness of the health issues that affect our male patients and patients assigned male at birth. It encourages all men to learn about the different health conditions they may experience 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 exacerbated by the fact that many men are reluctant to discuss their problems and often think it only happens to others. This builds a wall of silence, leaving men experiencing the issue feeling isolated.

At Manchester Fertility, we take positive action to ensure that men with fertility problems don’t feel this way but feel fully understood and supported.

Fertility issues can affect anyone

Did you know that male fertility is the most common reason couples 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, affect sperm production

Many male celebrities have gone public about how their fertility issues have impacted their lives – and they’ve urged other men to speak about it.

In most cases, fertility issues can be resolved with proper 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.

Fertility Review

If you and your partner have been trying for a baby and are having trouble conceiving, a fertility review 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 confidential fertility reviews provide complete insight into your current and potential fertility. Our specialist Male Reproductive Health Consultants will assess 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 well-being and providing the highest standard of care possible. 

Male Reproductive Health

Manchester Fertility has a dedicated reproductive health service for men, providing expert medical advice and support. Its purpose is to advise on the options available for those seeking fertility treatment or planning to start a family soon.

Our fertility specialists can help you understand:

  • Your current fertility – a thorough fertility assessment and physical examination
  • Your future fertility – how your lifestyle may be affecting your reproductive health
  • How to maintain your sexual health – preventing STIs and contraception
  • Sexual dysfunction – erectile and ejaculatory disorders

Wherever possible, we prevent problems arising in the first place through a programme of screening, advice, awareness and education.

If your assessment recommends treatment, such as surgical sperm removal or a SpermComet DNA damage test, our expert team will explain openly and honestly what’s involved and how to take the following steps.
