This week a new survey released by IVI showed the number of men deeply affected by infertility blues was higher than women.
As many as 7 out of 10 talked about the negative emotional impact from having IVF.
Twice as many men as women talked about the impact of the fertility blues lasting up to five years.
To understand more about the findings, I spoke to Tony Rutherford,Medical Director at IVI about the study. Along with the survey findings IVI has already released a guide to support men going through the IVF process:
If hearing about this survey has made you wish you had the opportunity to speak about your own feelings, well the good news is you can.
Also this week, Dr Esmee Hannah from Leeds Becket University along with Fertility Network UK have launched a survey which is available for you to answer in your own time online, asking men to share their infertility experiences.
