Ep21 – 5 Crucial Tests Your Doctor Probably Hasn’t Carried Out for your Man’s Fertility
Hello, I’m Katy Bradbury, a qualified Nutritional Therapist, private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked within Women’s Health, Maternal and Children’s Health for many years.
Today’s podcast is called “5 Crucial Tests Your Doctor Probably Hasn’t Carried Out for Your Man’s Fertility”. Male fertility is often under discussed and overlooked and, from a fertility clinics view if IVF is the ultimate goal then it only takes one hand picked, washed sperm.
