'Understanding Male Fertility' Course by Ian Stones
This one day course is designed to help you get a better understanding of the issues surrounding male infertility.
We know that 1 in 6 couples struggle to conceive and in 50% of those cases the issue actually sits with the man. Very little time, information and support is offered to men, so within this course, Ian Stones will help you to expand your knowledge and get a better understanding of how you can help men with education, testing, direction and support in order to expand your fertility practice.
Within the course we will cover this and a whole lot more:
• Understanding the typical fertility treatment routes and why it fails men
• Common male fertility issues, investigations and conventional medical treatment options including understanding a semen analysis and sperm comet test
• What’s it really like for a guy? Hear from racing driver and FNUK ambassador Toby Trice on the emotional impact of male factor infertility
• Where can men go for help and how can we help as health care providers
• What are the essential lifestyle and dietary factors for improving sperm health
• How to engage with more men and give them what they need
As health care practitioners, we are in a unique position to be able to help men understand their health and fertility offering them crucial dietary and lifestyle changes and emotional support that could improve their fertility and overall wellbeing and move them forward with their treatment.
This course is for you if you want to expand your knowledge of all things male fertility so that you can better serve your fertility patients.

An event recording with Ian Stones
In this recording, Ian will be speaking about issues surrounding male fertility and the awareness of this, why it's so important the that men get the right support and guidance, why men are missing out on proper tests and treatment and what effects this has on them. Ian will also be talking about why he's taking on a trek to Everest base camp to raise awareness of male fertility and money for Fertility Network UK. The event which this recording was taken from took place on 02.02.2022.
This recording is £5, and 100% of funds go to Ian Stones' fundraising for Fertility Network UKBuy recording here
In March 2022, Fertility Expert Ian Stones led a team of 3 men from the UK to Everest Base Camp to raise awareness of male fertility issues.
Why? Fertility treatment can be a gruelling process for couples and it can have a huge effect on men too. Many men feel isolated during fertility treatment and often feel like a spare part as treatment is heavily focussed on the woman. Men don’t get much support around lifestyle, diet and stress, nor do they have somewhere to go to talk about how treatment is affecting them emotionally and physically. For some men this can lead to serious mental health issues, depression and even suicidal thoughts.
Who? The money raised will be donated to Fertility Network UK. The fundraising target was £3,500, but Ian has already surpassed this target and is currently at £5124!
