At what age should men stop making babies with their sperm?

Taking everything into consideration but most important the health and upbringing of a child.

According to health experts, the same age that women shouldโ€”before 40. Every year after that leads to higher chances of autism, schizophrenia, ADHD, dyslexia and other learning disabilities, down syndrome, childhood cancers, congenital heart defects, etc. Sperm quality peaks between 25-30. It's advised men bank their sperm by 35, which is the same age recommended that women freeze their eggs. Old sperm also puts women at much higher risk for gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and preterm birth.

These poll results are somewhat baffling in comparison to the DL comments expressing horror at figures like Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino becoming fathers in their dotage.

In a related question, at what age should men stop making babies WITHOUT their sperm?

by Anonymousreply 3June 9, 2024 1:38 AM

r1 "According to health experts"

Links to your specific claims? I don't disbelieve you, but anytime someone makes a claim with "Experts agree..." etc. it sounds dubious.

Adorable that this question is being asked on the website overwhelmingly dominated by elderly men with no kids.

by Anonymousreply 5June 9, 2024 1:41 AM

45. At that age you can still have at lest 30 years. Enough time to see your child into adulthood, and mostly be able to keep up with toddlers in the early years.

Under 30

35. Men shouldn't be grandpa age with a newborn.

Nature obviously wants men to keep procreating.

When an older gentleman trades his old wife for a newer model, the new young wife shouldnโ€™t be excluded from having a baby just because her husband is old.

You need to have a dad who is still active to play with the kid.

R11 If it hits one million, weโ€™ll know the sperm are voting.


Some DL readers have sticky fingers from reading this thread about sperm, and one WW turns into 10 WWs.


Someone is amusing himself in a way that does not involve the release of sperm.

It's only in the last 15-20 years or so that advanced paternal age is considered to carry some risk of complications. Prior to that, most of the focus was on mothers, with pregnancies in women over 35 years old being classed as "geriatric" pregnancies.

by Anonymousreply 25June 9, 2024 12:53 PM

R25, women donโ€™t want to believe that theyโ€™re ever the problem. Men must be blamed for everything or at least something even when all the evidence points to the contrary. Old eggs and a dusty womb create retarded children.

R16 : Yes, it is. There are way too many people on the planet.

by Anonymousreply 27June 9, 2024 1:19 PM

Both women and men contribute to the problem, R26, but as always, the issue with men's age skated until now, because society has decided that men are never at fault for anything.

But hey -- you do you.

When the Rolling Stones stop touring and I don't need to burnish my Mack-Daddy Cred with another baby.

So, never.

It's so unfair.

We're both about the same age, but he can go on making babies the rest of his life.

I feel like the Spruce Goose.

People may visit, play with the controls, but I'll never really fly again.

R1 Agreed.

It's so hard to take these kinds of studies (or information) seriously these days when many scientists have drunk the 'woke' Kool-aid, so the next wave of historical/scientific analysis and literature is being tainted by an aggressively anti-men cultural bias.

by Anonymousreply 31June 9, 2024 2:08 PM

I believe the chance of neurodivergence increases dramatically after 35.

Neurodivergence is also highly hereditary but also appears to be capable of being created through old parents (mine was!). So if itโ€™s created, then it doesnโ€™t go away and becomes hereditary.

So sire all you want, because itโ€™s already been unleashed onto the population. I predict 30% neurodivergence by the end of the century.

Waiting for r4s' apology for r1s' factually correct post.

These posters always hiss loudly but when called out they slink away quietly.

Here's a tip: Don't challenge something when you obviously have no idea what the fuck you are talking about.

R31 same with 'woke' historians, who are doing everything they can to rewrite history or exaggerate the contributions of select groups.

R4 this is what annoys me

We literally live in an age where someone can copy/paste something, ask an AI โ€œis this trueโ€ and get a response like this:

The statement touches on several complex aspects of reproductive health. Here's a breakdown of what health experts generally agree upon:

1. **Paternal Age and Health Risks**: - There is evidence suggesting that the risk of certain conditions, including autism, schizophrenia, ADHD, and other neurodevelopmental disorders, increases with paternal age. Older paternal age is also associated with a higher risk of genetic mutations in sperm, which can contribute to congenital disabilities and other health issues in offspring. - Sperm quality, including motility and genetic integrity, tends to peak in a man's late 20s and early 30s, and it can decline with age.

2. **Maternal Age and Health Risks**: - Women are often advised to consider having children before age 35, as the risk of chromosomal abnormalities (such as Down syndrome), congenital heart defects, and other complications increases with maternal age. - The quality and quantity of a woman's eggs decline with age, which can impact fertility and increase the likelihood of miscarriages and pregnancy complications.

3. **Other Factors**: - Both paternal and maternal ages are important factors, but they are not the only ones. Lifestyle, genetics, and environmental factors also play significant roles in the health outcomes of offspring.

It is essential to consult with healthcare providers to understand the specific risks and make informed decisions based on individual health and family planning goals.

This question is redundant because as long women allow to birth brats by old geezers it doesn't matter what we tell men. It is women who should be told to abort grandpa babies. I recommend a vasectomy at age 15 to avoid unwanted child support. The sperm will be frozen when men are ready to be fathers at 65.
