Background: In Africa, infertility traditionally has been viewed as a female problem. This study explores reproductive health knowledge, health-seeking behaviour and experiences related to involuntary childlessness in men suffering from couple infertility.
Conclusions: These findings improve our understanding of the reproductive health needs of men suffering from couple infertility in Africa. This understanding is essential for the effective integration of male partners into modern infertility management. The need for appropriate counselling of men and, most particularly, for education of the community is recognized.

I worked in high-tech at Apple, Stanford University, and in Silicon Valley for 15 years before becoming a therapist. My background in high-tech is helpful in understanding local couples' dynamics and the pressures of living here. I am a wife, mom, sister, friend, author, and lifelong advocate for causes I believe in (such as marriage equality). My parents are both deceased. My son graduated culinary school and is heading toward a degree in Sociology. I enjoy reading, hiking, water fitness, movies, 49ers and Stanford football, Giants baseball, and riding a tandem bike with my husband. I love the beach and mountains; nature is my place of restoration. In my work with couples, and in this blog, I combine knowledge from many fields to bring you my best ideas, tips, tools and skills, plus book and movie reviews, and musings to help you be your genuine self, find your own voice, and have a happy and healthy relationship. Don't be surprised to hear about brain research and business skills, self-soothing techniques from all walks of life, suggestions and experiments, and anything that lights my passion for couples.

In addition to being academics, the couple leads what can only be described as a fashionably vintage life. Both John and Colleen prefer to wear vintage fashion in every part of their life and together they run an Instagram account that focuses on vintage styles and ancient Egypt. With more than 226,000 followers, The Vintage Egyptologist features images of Colleen (and sometimes John) sporting vintage looks before connecting the outfit to a factoid about ancient Egypt. As the couple spends roughly three months a year in Egypt conducting their research, many of the photos feature ancient sites.
When visiting their home, guests will be quick to notice that the Darnells have decorated it to function as a living museum; their 19th century home is full of antiques. When giving a tour of their home, the couple notes which seats are just for show and which ones are safe to plop on.
While the Darnells are devoted to vintage fashion and have a fondness for antiques they are quick to note that it is separate from their academic interests. When asked if they liked vintage looks as part of the early 1900s archeological aesthetic the couple chuckled.
The findings are based on two datasets, separately collected by Qualtrics in 2020. The first involved 3,750 adults in committed heterosexual couple relationships. The second included 713 matched heterosexual couples where both completed the survey.
