BONUS EPISODE * FERTILITY FEST THE INVISIBLE MAN*
For too long the male experience has been invisible. Traditionally the vast majority of tests and treatment have been focused on women. It’s been assumed that men have the ‘easy bit’ – all they need to do is go into a room with their favourite porn movie or magazine and wank! But is this really true? You’ll hear Actor and Writer Rod Silvers talking about his short film England Expects which uses football as a metaphor for going through unsuccessful IVF, and his follow up play Terry and Jude which looks at the lives of two older, single, childless men and Elis Matthews – the rapping reverend – will be (over)sharing about the lived experience of a man diagnosed with azoospermia and his unconventional route to parenthood.
Rod and Ellis joined the panel discussion with leading fertility experts of the ‘male experience’, Dr Benjamin Abramov, Medical Director, Gennet City Fertility and Jonathan RamsayConsultant Urologist at Hammersmith & Charing Cross Hospital and was chaired by Anya Sizer from Fertility Network UK.
