Men and women aren’t necessarily interested in the same things when it comes to infertility.
They don’t typically ask the same questions, nor are they always concerned with the same aspects of fertility treatment. This is true whether in a heterosexual, homosexual or no relationship at all. Without stepping, (I hope) on too many toes, I’ve created a questionnaire that is very gender biased. I admit it, it is. Still, this questionnaire is for both men and women, in other words- people.
Take this test. If you want to expand my understanding of how fertility affects us all, then please send me the results at my secure RMACT email address- lrosenthal@rmact. If not, please just take the test to learn about yourself or your partner. Or simply to start a conversation.
Please take the test privately (without your partner looking over your shoulder!) so that you can answer honestly.
Again, this is an opportunity to take a peek inside and see how this baby-making thing is really settling in. You may not want to share this with your partner at all. This may be just for you.
