How do men react to a diagnosis of male infertility? How are their lives affected by it? Male infertility is commonplace yet the male experience of it has been so far neglected. Male Infertility - Men Talking gathers together men''s stories and explores the common strands between them.
The spotlight is on infertile men, as they talk about what it feels like to be infertile. As an essential backdrop to the interviews Mary-Claire Mason examines the past and present medical management of male infertility and the problems that bedevil it. This coverage is combined with the main focus on how men are affected emotionally and socially, giving a unique insight into the male viewpoint and into infertile men''s desires and frustrations. Men talk about their medical, emotional and social experiences, about painful events, their relationships with families and friends, their feelings of isolation, their desire to be a father, and their hopes for the future.
Essential reading for all professionals working with infertility as well as for infertile couples themselves, Male Infertility - Men Talking will enable counsellors, doctors and nurses to understand more about the man''s point of view and to respond more fully to his needs.
