Male fertility reduces with time

Men too have their problems. Sperm counts have been falling in recent years, but it appears that even after fertility treatment older men produce lower pregnancy rates.This BBC report from the ESHRE meeting in Barcelona in 2008, shows just how much. Up to now, we thought men were immune to ageing, but maybe we have to have a rethink.No solution yet, except to have children young. But research has started into this aspect of fertility and in a few years maybe we can come up with something to counteract this. Or perhaps not. After all, we cant reverse the reduction of fertility in older women.
