Leading Surgeons Tet Yap and his internationally renowned partner Professor Suks Minhas have launched a new Men’s Health Clinic, London Andrology, to support men with conditions associated with male fertility and sexual function. The leading minds have also published an extensive survey*, The Fertility Index, to show how men and women across the UK understand and manage fertility and sexual health issues.
The index has highlighted that more than 1 in 4 (26%) of those under 35 are considering freezing sperm or eggs while young to help with conceiving later in life as millions delay having children young. The average age to have a child in the UK is now 31 but many couples are waiting until their late 30s or even early 40s to try for children. Freezing healthy sperm or eggs when young can extend the period that couples can conceive and can also help with fertility issues which are more likely to increase with age.
It isn’t just people in couples who are considering freezing their eggs or sperm 11% of single people are considering the procedure. The survey also showed how many couples have had fertility issues with 1 in 10 couples (10%) admitting to having difficulties when trying to conceive with more men (11%) than women (9%) experiencing problems.
The leading minds in their field have worked together for over 15 years, developing the most advanced treatments for sexual and reproductive needs. With their extensive clinical and research experience, the team have developed rigorous and patient-centred approaches to treating men’s health conditions and the new clinic is expected to lead the way in treating men’s health conditions – from fertility issues to sexual health issues like erectile dysfunction.
The team at the clinic are keen to raise awareness of male fertility and sexual health issues, get the UK talking about the subject, and change the misconceptions and imbalance between perceived issues around male and female fertility when trying to conceive.
Surgeon Tet Yap, Co-founder of the clinic, commented on the launch, “ Unfortunately, fertility issues often come to light when people are trying to conceive and for many, this is now much later in life. It is great to see so many young people planning for the future and considering freezing eggs or sperm as an insurance policy for these potential future fertility issues.
We launched the clinic to change this perception and offer a safe place for men, their partners, and loved ones to discuss their concerns openly, knowing they will be getting the best service and support.”
