Effects of paternal age in assisted reproduction

Although there is no robust conclusion on the effect of male age on assisted reproductive techniques, certain aspects could be affected. This is the case of fertilization rate, blastocyst formation rate and pregnancy rate.

In addition, the miscarriage rate and the rate of embryonic aneuploidy could be increased if the male is older. This makes preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) advisable for some authors, especially when the male is older than 50 years.
