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 and the concerning trend in a rise in fertility issues.
The index has highlighted that fertility issues have risen hugely over the last two generations with 16% of those under 34s being impacted by fertility issues when they have tried to conceive compared to just 6% of those over 55s. The figures show a concerning trend in a rise in fertility issues across the UK which mirrors recent reports showing a surge in infertility in both men and women across the western world.
The survey also showed that more men than women have been impacted by fertility issues with 11% of all men admitting to issues compared to only 9% of women. This means on average 1 in 10 couples are impacted by fertility conceiving across all age groups with 18 – 24 year olds being impacted most with 1 in 5 (19%) reporting 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 the rise in 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, men’s fertility and sexual health issues are still taboo subjects for far too many of us. The Fertility Index was designed to encourage couples to openly discuss their fertility and sexual health issues and understand what can impact their sexual performances.
It is concerning to see some of the trends and how fertility issues are increasing in the UK compared to previous generations and our clinic is designed to offer a safe place for men, their partners, and loved ones to discuss their concerns openly and what options are available to help.”
