Male Infertility Blues

I am not a man like other men. I am infertile.  All I can think about is my semen lost at sea.

I don’t want to go to work. I don’t know if I have the strength to battle the commute. I don’t have a cold but I feel worse than if I had the worst possible man flu. I have “not-fertile enough-to-be-a-man” flu. I wish I could phone work and announce that I had picked up a bad dose of infertility and that there was no way I would be able to do my job today. But I look fine. There are no immediate clues to infertility. From the outside, you can’t see the damage within. Like the banks in the financial meltdown, you have no idea how badly things aren’t working the way they are meant to.

  1. Thanks for making this blog. This article was funny but true to how I feel. Maybe because nobody said this could happen ?

    1. I have met a lot of couples who struggle to have a baby, and, touched by their stories, I decided to work on a solution for them.

      I co-founded Nanovare, a healthcare company which aims at designing a new way of testing male fertility!

      For that, we do need your help! We are looking to hear the stories and voices of people like you, who can lend their opinions and help shape a better solution. Would you accept discussing this with us?

      I understand how tough this subject is, but in developing such a solution, we would like to support men and improve their condition in detecting fertility issues the soonest possible.

      Don’t hesitate to contact me with the email that appears, or through this survey, in leaving your contact at the end :

      I wish you the best of luck, and really hope we could exchange soon!
