Best Age to Become a Father/Mother – Know the ideal age to have children, for men and women!
The biological clock doesn’t just hit women. New studies show that men should also not wait to become parents, under penalty of having difficulty impregnating the companion or having children more prone to developing problems.
Best Age to Become a Father: In the case of men, the ideal age to conceive is up to 35 years. The male fertility rate begins to fall from the 50 years old and, at the age of 65, it drops about 35%.
Best Age to Become a Mother: In the case of women, at 25 years the rate starts to fall about 20% a month and after the 40, the chance of getting pregnant arrives at 1% per month. According to the specialist in assisted reproduction Dr. Paulo Gallo, father of Breno and Paulo Jr., the idea is to conceive between the 25 and the 35 years.
Researchers recently discovered that the older the man is the time to be a father, the riskier is for the child. Although the results are still initial and need more confirmations, a recent study shows that the age of the parent interferes with the risk of autism and schizophrenia due to genetic mutations.
As families are having babies increasingly late, since men and women prefer to be stabilized in the profession before marriage, an option to prevent genetic mutations from interfering in the development of babies is the freezing of ova and sperm.
According to Dr. Paulo Gallo, the procedure costs around R $1,200 for men, with an annual value of about R $800 to keep freezing. and between R $4,000 and R $5,000 for women. For women, the process is more complex because it involves medication, but it may be worth it to ensure a pregnancy at a later age, preserving the quality of the embryo since the OVA aged within the organism.
According to Dr. Paul, the age of parents does not interfere with the quality of the embryo or the fetus but may interfere with the health of the child after birth. Further research is still needed to see if there are other complications related to the age of the parents.
