How does Male Age Matters For Your Fertility?
MYTH: The age of the man does not matter while planning pregnancy
FACT: There's a belief that only women have a ticking biological clock - but recent studies have discredited this belief, warning that the chances of having a baby naturally or through IVF may depend on the age of the male partner as well, and not just the age of the woman.
While the ideal age for women to achieve pregnancy is between 25 to 35 years, female fertility starts declining after 30 years of age. On the other hand, men's fertility potential is at its best till the age of 45-50 years. After that, there is a deterioration in the quality of the sperms and the sperm count, which is usually not proven unless a semen analysis and DFI (DNA Fragmentation Index) testing is done.
