Where do men dealing with infertility go?

Hi there.
Not sure if this is where to post this but my husband and I are ttc and I have PCOS so we are having to go through treatment, which is a real toll on us both. We are strong together, but sometimes women need to talk to other women and men need to talk to other men.
Everything is always aimed at the women when it comes to support and I think my husband would really benefit speaking to others going through this. I also think the anonymity of A web chat would be better suited to him than full on counselling etc.
Does anyone know of particular threads, or other sites that offer support and chat for men who are dealing with infertility treatments?
Any help much appreciated.
Thanks.

I can't help with talking about infertility myself, but from what I've seen here, I prefer to post to a relevant topic area rather than dadsnet, as the dadsnet area doesn't get many people talking. Posting in a topic area has got me advice and support from both genders (mostly ladies, but I guess this is a site with mostly female active users).

Hi, thanks for that. I'll take a look again through the infertility topic.

Is fertility friends one of your forums? They have a "dads room", but it was pretty quiet last time I checked :-(

There may be some chemical reasons that help or hinder both of you in making a healthy baby

* Go for a holiday in the sun to increase your Vitamin D - up to 3 months before you want to start
* Eat lots of oily fish like salmon, plus flaxseeds and walnuts etc which have lots of Omega-3
