New book claims men don't know they are infertile...

Doctors find it hard to get to the point when telling men they are infertile

Two out of three infertile men do not know they are sterile because of the “plumbing, sporting or car mechanic” metaphors typically used by doctors breaking the difficult news, a new book claims.

Preoccupation with the female reproduction system has left male infertility “culturally invisible”, it says, with a gap in services for men, even though they are responsible for the same proportion of problems in conceiving a child as women.
