Share this:

Reproductive health is an important component of men's overall health and well-being. Too often, males have been overlooked in discussions of reproductive health, especially when reproductive issues such as contraception and infertility have been perceived as female-related. Every day, men, their partners, and health care providers can protect their reproductive health by ensuring effective contraception, avoiding sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and preserving fertility.

Common issues in male reproductive health include:

  • Contraception
  • Avoiding sexually transmitted diseases
  • Infertility/fertility
