One of the biggest misconceptions about male fertility is that as men age their fertility levels do not. The ticking biological clock is seen as a female only issue with many men assuming no matter what they do or what age they are, their fertility will not be effected.  

Researchers from the journal of Fertility and Sterility interviewed <2,000 women about how long it took them to naturally conceive. They found it took four times as long to conceive when the man was aged 45 and over, indicating that a man’s age was a factor when trying to conceive naturally.  ust because a man is producing sperm, it does not mean the sperm is of high enough quality for fertilisation The volume and speed/motility of their sperm is lowered in the aging process.
