Apparently, Men Also Experience Menopause


Men also experience “menopause” as experienced by women. Recent research found that male fertility begins to decline when he was entering the 30s. Researchers reveal the man who waited until age 40 years for married and have children, if high-risk pregnant wife had a miscarriage because of poor sperm quality.

“The decline of fertility in women starting at age 35, already known to many people. In fact, not only women who experienced it, men also experienced fertility decline at around the age of 30s,” said dr. Mark Bowman, head of Sydney IVF clinic, as quoted from the Telegraph.

He knew it from the tests conducted on 3324 men for four years. Sperm is the male sperm was tested using DNA methods to assess “the reproductive potential” they. Research shows that from the age of 35 years, the proportion of damaged sperm increased.

“This means, if the man produced an average of 40 million, per ejaculation, many of these sperm can not fertilize the egg normally. He will have a low potential for fertility, and difficult to have children,” said dr. Bowman.

This indicates the man also had a “period of fertility” such as menopause in women. Earlier this year, a study of more than 20,000 couples who want to have children, found that nearly a third of middle-aged men are less likely to impregnated their partner than males under 35.

Doctors have long warned that too many women and men, who put off starting families until the late thirties or early forties. Yet when it began declining fertility.

Research at the Eylau Centre for Assisted Reproduction in Paris found that the older a prospective father, the less chance they will get pregnant couples. The study involved some form of fertility treatment, in which sperm “cleaned” before insemination into the womb of a woman, to help sperm survive longer.

For men between 30 and 35, pregnancies chance can reach 13.6 percent. But that number dropped to 9.3 percent if the man is older than 45 years, and the third study also showed that men whose age was more than 35 years, 75 percent of spouses had a miscarriage because of poor sperm quality.
