Fertility issues can impact anyone, no matter how much we may try to ignore them or pretend something is nothing.

This could be due to a low sperm count, a low sperm motility or poor morphology of the sperm itself,

Whether you're in a couple looking to have a baby or you're a man looking to go down the road of solo parenting, checking your fertility is very important. We know that it can feel overwhelming and it's difficult to know where to start, so we've put together a guide that covers the most crucial (and often confusing!) topics you need to know about. It's been written by our in-house clinical team of doctors and nurses, who have over 40 years of combined experience working in reproductive health. They've worked with the most complex fertility challenges, in some of the UK's leading fertility clinics.

Around 3.5 million people across the UK will struggle with fertility and yet there's still a huge barrier when it comes to men having open conversations about it. It's time to remove the stigma around men’s reproductive health and normalise taking care of ourselves in the best way possible.

Fertifa is a helping hand for people experiencing all kinds of reproductive health concerns. ​If you'd like to book in a call to discuss how we can provide men's health benefits for you and your team at work, get in touch here. We'd love to speak 💜
