Men’s IVF rates fall as they age

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

MEN also have a bi­o­log­i­cal clock and it could af­fect IVF treat­ments.

New re­search con­ducted by Monash Univer­sity has shown that IVF suc­cess rates de­cline as men get older, de­bunk­ing the myth that only women ex­pe­ri­ence a drop in fer­til­ity as they age.

The study an­a­lysed nearly 2500 cy­cles of Monash IVF pa­tients and found that in­creas­ing male age is as­so­ci­ated with still­birth and mis­car­riages and the chance of live birth de­creases by 4.1 per cent with each year of age.
