Best Age for Man to Have a Baby
Male have biological clocks too! When we just learned that women should not panic about their eggs shriveling up, dying by age thirty-five (what a relief!), the men actually do have to worry about their sperm-cell taking a nosedive in quantity and actually mutating when they hit the big 3-0.
Testosterone levels drop about 1% per year after age thirty. The older a guy gets, not only is his sperm count lowered (that can lead to a higher risk of cancer) but the sperm divide more and more and causing higher genetic abnormalities which can create autism or other health issues in children.
According to New York, City-based urologist Joseph Alukal, who is known in the industry as “The Sperm Whisperer,” (ha!) more male than ever are choosing to freeze their sperm in an effort to make sure they can father healthy kids later in life. Page 6 Magazine, which interviewed Dr. Alukal, reports that this involves “cryobanking,” and costs roughly 500 dollars to start, with annual storage fees ranging from 450 dollars for a year to 2,550 dollars for ten years.
This preventative measure is pricy, so do not let your guy’s age get your own. To quote the dearly departed R&B singer Aaliyah (RIP), “Age is not Nothin’ But a Number.” No matter whether your guy is twenty, thirty or forty, there’re things he can do for free to ensure he is producing strong swimmers. A healthy lifestyle may assist you to delay the aging effects that lower fertility.
Daily exercise, a low-fat diet is key. If your partner is overweight or underweight. It can kill your chances of getting pregnant. If your man is a smoker, help him quit, because it can also decrease sperm-cell count and cause sperm-cell to move more slowly, making sure they can never make it to the egg to fertilize it. He’d also limit drinking to weddings, reunions and also really important sporting events (which are my words, not a professional’s, doctors say to avoid alcohol but you cannot take away all his fun!).
Stress levels may also increase abnormal sperm-cell, reduce its concentration. So getting enough sleep, taking time to relax can really make a difference for him in the bedroom. As silly as it sounds, do not let him get overheated! Time spent in saunas, Jacuzzis, steam rooms should be limited to 15 min no more than twice in a week since sperm-cell production thrives in a cool climate. This even means he should not spend all night on his laptop either!
I bet while you were getting all of those lectures in Sex Ed, the 16 years old you had no idea how complicated the science of having a baby really is!
