When trying for a family, male fertility is often overlooked. Male infertility is a serious matter and should be treated as such. Male infertility means failed embryo transfer due to chromosomal abnormalities, early miscarriages, it means heartache and despair.
Join us for an informative evening to learn about male fertility, what it means and when a man is considered infertile, as well as a male patient's perspective on IVF and male infertiliy.
