Testing Male Fertility – an interview with expert, Dr. Martin Bastuba

When is the right time to test male fertility? If you’ve been having fertility problems, then Dr Bastuba has some great advice about the man’s role in fertility…

Fertility issues are as much a male issue as they are a female issue, but unfortunately they are often not discussed enough. 

Are you a female reading this feeling like the responsibility has fallen mostly onto your shoulders? Or are you a male partner wondering how you play your role in overcoming your fertility issues?

A big part of why male fertility problems are kept so hush-hush is because of the damage it does to the male ego when we do approach it.

Just like women go through shame and negative thoughts about their fertility issues, men also don’t like to discuss or even acknowledge that their manhood isn’t working.

When is the right time to get a semen analysis?

I’ve teamed up with male fertility expert, and close friend and colleague of mine, Dr Bastuba to give you the full down low about how to make sure everything is working down-low.

Myself and the team at Reproductive Wellness work closely with Dr Bastuba at our clinics here in our San Diego fertility clinic with our male patients.
