About Mr Jonathan Ramsay

Mr Jonathan Ramsay is a Consultant Urologist specialising in male fertility investigation and treatment. Jonathan works closely with men of all ages and particularly supports their health and well-being on their fertility journey. His role as a urologist working in fertility care makes him unique; he is one of just a few in the country.

Jonathan believes human fertility encompasses biology, emotion and psychology, and that it's really important that he supports his patients across all these fronts where possible.

Changing the face of male fertility

With over 30 years’ experience, Mr Ramsay has helped to change the way that couple’s fertility is investigated and treated. For years, fertility clinics focused on helping only the women, whereas Mr Ramsay works on the fact that 50% of all infertility causes are caused by male factor and therefore must be equally investigated.

It is important that men are supported throughout their fertility journey, as there is so much that can be done to help the man and improve a man's fertility.

Without careful support and investigation sometimes, the man can be left feeling abandoned and helpless.


Male Fertility

Although there are common conditions, it's really important to work with you as an individual, assessing your personal journey to date and your goals for the future.

I help my patients to understand a diagnosis they may have received and then support them through a tailored treatment process.

Often this is linked to achieving a natural pregnancy or undergoing IVF, when the effective contribution of both parties really is necessary for a successful outcome.

My recommendation for those who have been trying for a baby for six months, is that you should at least get a semen analysis done. This is the most simple fertility test to do and can save you many more months of trying to conceive. This becomes especially relevant when the female partner is over the age of 35 and it is equally important that the semen analysis itself is of a high-quality and follows WHO standards. Only in this way can an accurate diagnosis of a man's fertility be given.

Ultimately, the sooner we can look into the male factor the better - we commonly see several different situations which are usually amenable to investigation which often leads to treatment. The key is diagnosis - it may save you a lot of time and money, so please do get in touch!

Fertility Talk with Ian Stones at testhim

In this webinar we hope to break down some of the myths surrounding sperm DNA fragmentation and help you, as patients, get a better understanding of what it’s all about.

Celebrity Save Our Sperm

As male fertility rates plummet, celebs unite in a ballsy attempt to increase their sperm count in 10 days. Can they rise to the challenge and prevent spermageddon?

Fertility Talk with Ian Stones at testhim

We got to chat about the history of fertility treatment, how the world of andrology has changed, advanced testing and so much more. Also, why is ICSI such a problem to the urology industry? What has that done for Urology?

X-Men exist!

When Gareth and his wife decided to have a family in 2017, they learned about a genetic condition called Klinefelter Syndrome or XXY. Gareth speaks about some of the traits of this common but often undiagnosed condition and how we as a society need to talk more openly about male factor infertility. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organised by a local community.

The Fertility Show Live

I was delighted to speaking in the Seminar Programme at this year’s Fertility Show at London Olympia. The feedback was brilliant and the schedule was a busy one:

"While the show’s seminar schedule has always been extensive, it was encouraging to see that the 2023 line-up included many discussions on male fertility, an area which often gets overlooked as the focus is usually on the female partner. The impressive turnout for the ‘Helping Male Fertility & Lifestyle’ seminar with nutritionist Melanie Brown and Dr Jonathan Ramsay (also affectionately known as “The King of Balls”!) showed that there’s a huge interest in men wanting to learn about the non-medical changes they can make to improve the quality of their sperm."

Gareth’s search to find out why he has no sperm. Gareth Landy will never forget the room where it happens. Where he’s told he has no sperm. 

In Room 5, Helena Merriman shares stories of real-life medical mysteries, interviewing people who - like her - were changed by a diagnosis.


Sperm analysis & varicocele

In July 2022 Jonathan spoke to Fertility Acupuncturist Naava Carman and her community of expertly trained Chinese Medicine practitioners to answer their deep questions around male fertility, sperm analysis and varicocele.

Naava and her colleagues use Western medical diagnostics to inform their use of Traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine to support people on their fertility journey, whether that is through natural conception, IVF or other reproductive technologies.

Fertility (in) Focus

I recently edited a Fertility Focus supplement for Urology News. An incredibly insightful supplement, I am sure that it will be of great interest to a number of our patients. 

The authoritative reviews are all about enhancing and preserving male fertility and seeks to help patients to understand, and maybe to accept more easily, a difficult diagnosis.
