Michael Hughes and why it’s important to talk about male infertility and make friends despite childlessness.Read More
I met the married couple who write Married And Childless at Fertility Fest. Both myself and Steph at World Childless Week would have happily dragged Michael to the stage because he spoke so movingly about infertility from the man's point of view.

I know from feedback for this site that these resources provide comfort and information to our male contributors and their friends and family, helping to push past feeling of isolation.Read More

Women have many more opportunities to see their doctor annually from smears to breast exams but men really don’t have a reason to go to a doctor each year so they often avoid it @KristendarcyRead More
