Did you know there is a men only facebook group, where Guys can go and openly vent about how they’re feeling, get advice and support?

Well there is and I caught up with its founder Gareth Downs to talk about his infertility struggles, how lumps he found in his testicles at 18 led to a diagnosis of azoospermia.

As his fertility journey got more complicated with failed cycles and recurrent miscarriage, Gareth became frustrated with his inability to talk openly with his partner about what he was feeling.

He decided to set up a facebook page and since doing so, it now has over 200 members. Gareth has been speaking out to encourage men to do the same (albeit they don’t have to do it to camera just join the group)

Here is  Gareth sharing his story as part of the Hidden Faces campaign for Fertility Network UK

Here’s a link to the facebook group  and how you can follow him on twitter 

Plus I mentioned how to become a Patron of this podcast to help me continue to put a voice to infertility. Just pop over here  and do let me know if you’d like to share your story. Just email natalie@thefertilitypodcast.com x
