More than half of internet inquiries about male vasectomies are not made by men but by the women in their lives, according to a survey.
Women also make around two-thirds of all search traffic into male hair transplants, the survey by Whatclinic.com found.
It suggests that while there may be a marked shift towards greater shared responsibility for both chores and children in Ireland, women are undeniably the country’s key healthcare decision-makers.
The research from the private healthcare search engine showed that that almost three-quarters of all healthcare traffic in Ireland comes from women. That is 5pc above the global average. Not surprisingly, men account for very small portion of obstetrics and gynaecology (10pc) or mammogram (18pc) search traffic in Ireland.
