The truth is we, as a general population, are walking paradoxes. Sometimes we are happy to talk about ourselves, and at other times, we are challenged by the idea of admitting that there may be an issue outside of our control. Consider this, you see an optometrist, they say you need glasses, so what do you do, but start wearing glasses. There's no stigma. Or perhaps someone you know has an ongoing malaise later diagnosed as cancer. There's no shame, no hushed whispers. They will openly talk about it and better still, there is a lot of support. Yet when someone has depression, or when they suffer from fertility issues, they can feel massively isolated, alone and at times ashamed to talk about it.
I am a male in my mid-thirties, and like a large proportion of Australian males, I like watching sports of all kinds, trying my hand at a few as well, a couple of drinks with friends, good food, fun and generally being free to make my own choices. I am hardly an outlier by any standard and in fact some people would call me a typical male.
So why do I feel I am part of a minority, specifically, a minority of men who are comfortable talking about fertility, sex and, dare I say it, troubles with conception? Perhaps it is where I work which gives me unique and privileged insight and perspective, but I don’t think this is entirely it. In fact in the interview for my role, I was asked why I wanted to work at Genea. My answer was as true then as it remains today: “Because I as a parent, who had some issues conceiving with my wife, want to work somewhere where I can do my part to normalise the conversation about fertility and help as many others as possible experience the joy I have with my own kids”.
Recent pioneering campaigns such as Man Therapy are addressing the topic of male depression and really working to bring it out into the open. In the same vein, I – as do we all here at Genea – want to open up more awareness and conversation around male fertility. In fact, it is why we are doing the Australian Fertility Census at the moment – we want to know what people do and don’t know about fertility so we can have the right conversations with everyone. For now, some thoughts I would love all you guys (and girls too) to know is:
