Women usually do the asking when it comes to fertility.
Our aim is to help men become more aware of their own fertility.

More than 2.5 million men in Britain may be suffering from fertility problems, with high rates of smoking, stress and drinking believed to be contributory factors. But many men are in denial about the risk of infertility and tend to believe that problems in conceiving are more likely to be the "fault" of the woman.

A recent survey of GP's and male patients found that while doctors were worried about the extent of the problem, many men were unaware that they could have problems fathering a child. More than 30 per cent of the GP's said they were concerned about the decline in male fertility. More than a quarter said that low male fertility could have a detrimental impact on the population, unless men changed their lifestyles. Asked to name the biggest causes of male infertility, GP's listed smoking, excess alcohol consumption and stress. Research for the survey also suggested that 9 per cent of the male population in Britain could be suffering from low fertility. The quality and number of sperm that men produce has declined in the past 30 years, with male infertility accounting for about a third of couples' problems conceiving.

But when almost 1,000 men were questioned for the report, only 12 per cent said they were concerned about their own fertility, and only 5 per cent were aware that they could be suffering from a low sperm count. More than half - 59 per cent - believed women were more likely to suffer from fertility problems. One in three men believe their partners will be able to conceive within two months of trying, while three-quarters of GP's said they expect an average couple to take between three and six months to achieve a pregnancy.

Despite the lack of awareness, 12 per cent of men who had children said it had taken longer than they anticipated for their partners to conceive.
 
Male fertility is measured by sperm quality and count and this web site provides information on home test products designed to assess male fertility potential and identifies the use of supplements to support healthy sperm production.
