Causing Millions To Consider Freezing Sperm While Still Young

Leading Surgeons Tet Yap and his internationally renowned partner Professor Suks Minhas have launched a new Men’s Health Clinic, London Andrology, to support men with conditions associated with male fertility and sexual function. The leading minds have also published an extensive survey*, The Fertility Index, to show how men and women across the UK understand and manage fertility and sexual health issues.

The index has highlighted that awareness of male fertility issues has risen hugely over the last two generations with 16% of those under 34s being impacted by fertility issues when they have tried to conceive compared to just 6% of those over 55s. The figures show a concerning trend in a rise in fertility issues across the UK which mirrors recent reports showing a surge in infertility in both men and women across the western world.

The comprehensive survey also showed that more than a quarter (26%) of men under 35 are considering freezing their sperm while young, to help with conceiving later in life. It isn’t just men in couples who are considering freezing their sperm 11% of single men are considering the procedure

The average age to have a child in the UK is now 31 but many couples are waiting until their late 30s or even early 40s to try for children. Freezing healthy sperm or eggs when young can extend the period that couples can conceive and can also help with fertility issues which are more likely to increase with age. 

The leading minds in their field have worked together for over 15 years, developing the most advanced treatments for sexual and reproductive needs. With their extensive clinical and research experience, the team have developed rigorous and patient-centred approaches to treating men’s health conditions and the new clinic is expected to lead the way in treating men’s health conditions – from fertility issues to sexual health issues like erectile dysfunction.

Surgeon Tet Yap, Co-founder of the clinic, commented on the launch, “The Fertility Index was designed to encourage couples to openly discuss their fertility and sexual health issues and understand what can impact their sexual performances.

 It is concerning to see some of the trends and how fertility issues are increasing in the UK compared to previous generations but encouraging that so many men are considering options such as freezing sperm to help with potential future issues. Our clinic is designed to offer a safe place for men, their partners, and loved ones to discuss their concerns openly and what options are available to help.”
