What men need to know about fertility - testing it, boosting it, treating it

It is often women who carry the shame and worry of infertility and yet men are a significant cause of problems in nearly half of all cases. A low sperm count or poor quality sperm, obstructions or mechanical difficulties can all be problems for those struggling to conceive. In this talk Allan Pacey, Professor of Andrology at the University of Sheffield and former Chairman of the British Fertility Society, outlines the potential problems, how to test for them and how male fertility might be boosted or treated.
