Men feel male fertility is a taboo subject
Men still feel male fertility is a taboo subject - London Andrology

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 twice as many women (7%) than men (3%) have sought advice from a medical professional about fertility and sexual health issues. The data also showed that over a third (34%) of those surveyed still think male fertility is more of a taboo subject than female fertility and is widely misunderstood with only 19% believing that male fertility is as much of an issue as female fertility when trying to conceive.

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, 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 sexual health is still a taboo subject for far too many of us. The survey has highlighted how fertility and sexual health issues still focus on women with the majority of the UK still not discussing or understanding male fertility.

We have launched the clinic to change this perception and offer a safe place for men and their partners and loved ones to discuss their concerns openly knowing they will be getting the very best service and support.
