Age and fertility in men and women

There are many causes behind the declining rate of fertility today. Among the most important ones is age, which can play a big role in conception. Doctor Astha Chakravarty from Asha IVF & Fertility Centre, a medical expert on gynecology and fertility, discusses how aging affects women’s fertility and that of men.

You can’t control your age. The reason why many women & men have babies later in life is that they are not as settled as they think they will be in the future (for instance with money or housing), they do not want to have children in the beginning or they do not have a partner with whom to have a child.

Age and egg quality

The eggs a woman has at birth are all she will ever have, at Best Gynecologist in Faridabad when a patient visits they ensure to make them aware about every aspect like A woman’s eggs continue to age with her, and they gradually decrease both in quantity and quality as she ages. This is why women over 35 years of age have a lower likelihood of having a baby over time as well.

When women are in their 20s and early 30s, they are not necessarily ready to start a family for whatever reason.

Age and sperm quality 

The average man makes millions of new sperm each day, but older men have fewer healthy sperm than younger men. Ideally, between the ages of 20 and 80, sperm motility (their ability to move toward an egg) and the quantity of semen (the fluid in which sperm reside) decrease steadily.

What if my reproductive partner is older?

We have commonly heard that the main reason for not being able to start a family is female, but that is not entirely accurate. In the same way that women’s ability to have children declines with age, so does the ability of men to have one as well.

In cases where the male partner is over 40, it may be harder for the female partner to conceive, especially if she is also 40.

Dr. Asha Chakrabarty, known for providing the Best Surrogacy in Faridabad also believes,  From her experience, she shares a few other reasons below why older men have a lower chance of being a father. 

  • Less desire for sex.
  • Sperm of poor quality.
  • Hormones associated with the male sex are lower.
