What are the advantages of assisted reproduction for older men?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez.
Last Update: 06/03/2021

One advantage of assisted reproduction when the age of the male partner is advanced is that, with techniques such as ICSI, certain problems in sperm quality that age may have caused can be overcome.

On the other hand, assisted reproduction also offers the possibility of carrying out a pre-implantation genetic test on embryos (especially if the couple is of advanced maternal age). In this way, embryos with genetic alterations would not be transferred.

Suggested for you: Men are also at the optimal age to become fathers.
