Men Your Sperm Becomes Fragmented Autism Can Be the Result for Babies

No Doubt That Father's Age and Habits are Crucial The 20s to very early 30s are the time to conceive babies.

"But the bottom line in all of this is that couples should consider conceiving earlier when their fertility is at optimum levels," she said.

Fat, smokes, booze will hurt sperm

MEN over 40 are being warned that their stomach fat, smoking habits and love of alcohol will damage their sperm and their chance of fatherhood.
Reproductive experts say there is emerging evidence that a man's fertility declines steadily with age just as it does for a woman, seriously impairing the couple's chance of having a baby.
It was well documented that the window of opportunity for women to conceive falls quickly in their late 30s, but evidence for men has been less clear, said Dr Anne Clark, chairwoman of the Fertility Society of Australia's fertility protection group.
"While the amber light of infertility comes on at the age of 35 for women, it is not so well known that it starts to shine for men at around 40," Dr Clark said at the fertility society's conference in Hobart.
Sperm count, shape and "travel path" has been the traditional method of analysing male fertility but new evidence suggests that DNA breakages in sperm may be a principal reason for male infertility problems.
For men with more than 20 per cent of their sperm "fragmented" the chance of pregnancy is significantly reduced, chance of miscarriage increased three to four times and there is also increased risk of birth defects.
