This is based on my research hope it can help you♥
The likelihood of pregnancy depends mostly on maternal age rather than paternal age. There is no definitive age when men cannot reproduce because the number, or concentration, of sperm remains relatively constant for them. Even with decreases in semen volume, sperm motility and sperm morphology (the size and shape of sperm), men are able to produce sperm well into their senior years. While some studies have shown that advanced paternal age may be linked to higher miscarriage rates, these data are difficult to interpret due to differences in maternal age and the small numbers of patients in these studies. Nonetheless, while the effects of paternal age onfertility may not be as dramatic as with maternal age, younger is probably better.
The biggest misconception is that men age and nothing changes. Men feel that no matter what they do, everything will be the same. That's just not true. Men's fertility does decline with age.
In a study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, researchers interviewed nearly 2,000 women to find out how long it took them to conceive. Among women 35 and older, those whose male partners were 45 and older took five times longer to conceive than those whose partners were 25 and younger.
The researchers also looked at what happens when young women (age 25 and under) have children with men 45 and older. The researchers found a fourfold increase in the time it took couples to conceive – meaning the man's age was a factor independent of the woman's age.
The best thing about the male biological clock is that it's usually reversible. Losing weight, having an infection treated, or getting a blockage cleared up can sometimes do the trick. But you need to be tested before you can be treated. So if a couple is having problems getting pregnant, it's important for the man to see a specialist.
When it comes to infertility, 40 percent of the time the problem lies with the man, in another 40 percent of cases it's the woman, and 20 percent of the time both partners have contributing factors or the cause is unknown. But male infertility is almost always easier to diagnose and remedy than female infertility, so it's always worth starting with him.One of the biggest causes of male infertility is infection in some part of the reproductive tract, such as the prostate. A low-grade infection can go undetected for years while silently damaging or killing sperm. I can't tell you how many pregnancies I've seen happen just by putting the man on antibiotics. Other common causes of male infertility are clogged ejaculatory ducts and enlarged veins in the scrotum, called varicoceles. All of these conditions are treatable.
