Age is an important factor in case of fertility issues. Age is having a major effect on female fertility when compared to men. For men age is not an important factor as it does not impact their fertility. Generally a decline in sperm is seen after 45 years of age. After 45 years of age, it will take longer for a man to cause pregnancy. The risk of health issues in babies also increases due to the old age of a man.
Chances of achieving a healthy pregnancy decreases as the woman’s age increases. Old age woman will not be able to release eggs and enter into menopause condition. The menopause results in infertility in women.
