Although there is no age to become a mother and father, but even if you become a father at the age of 35 or 40 but its side effects can be seen in your child. There are many reasons for this. In fact, all the eggs that women need throughout their lifespan are born with them, while the sperm continues to be produced in men.
According to a University of Washington, every time men produce 1000 sperm with a beating heart, however, all the sperm eggs are not fertilized to produce a baby. They are released in ejaculation or destroyed on their own with time. At the same time, the quality of your sperm is affected with aging. Know what is the risk
At the age of 40 or 50, you can produce the same sperm as you did in 25 or 30, but the quality of sperm varies with age.
As the age increases, the size of the sperm and their mobility decreases, so there is a problem in the process of fertilization.
By the age of 40, the testosterone level starts decreasing. This reduces the desire for sex, so that you are not able to have regular sex.
Not only this, as the age increases due to mutations in the sperm, there can be many genetic problems in the child. If you are over 40, the child may also have problems like Down syndrome, autism, type 1 diabetes and schizophrenia.
