    Infertility Advocate

    James D’Souza (he/him) is an emotionally articulate man who still loves being married after nearly 15 years. His fertility journey with Davina started in 2012 and completed in 2021 after three failed rounds of IVF, a diagnosis of Endo-Adeno for Davina (with multiple surgeries), and a testicular cancer diagnosis for James.

    Along the way, he discovered that talking about his experience contributed to others whilst slightly intimidating them. His ideas about fertility and masculinity have been featured in The Guardian, BBC Breakfast, Good Men Project, BBC Radio5Live, and others. He also appeared in the film ‘The Easy Bit’ about the male experience of fertility treatment.

    He loves playing guitar, avoiding getting punched in the head at sessions of Urban Krav Maga, and asking awkward questions.
