Sperm health is regularly in the press, including the suggestion of all men over 18, freezing their sperm! A man who knows what he’s talking about and a former podcast guest  is Professor Allan Pacey, his specialism is male infertility. I was keen to get his thoughts on research out this week for National Fertility Awareness week  on men’s awareness of issues affecting their fertility.  If you are going to The Fertility Show this week you will get the chance to hear Allan speak and he’s pretty matter of fact when it comes to delivering the fact.  Have a listen to my previous chat here Season 1.
