Paternal Age Poses No Threat to Live Birth Rate and Perinatal Well-being Post In Vitro Fertilization
10 Nov 2023 • A recent American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology study debunked concerns around advanced paternal age (≥40 years) in IVF outcomes. Analyzing over 56,000 cases, the research revealed no significant association between older paternal age and reduced chances of live birth, clinical pregnancy, or increased miscarriage rates. Perinatal outcomes, such as preterm birth & birth weight, showed no noteworthy differences.
With the global trend towards delaying childbirth, these findings provide useful information for counseling patients that increasing paternal age may not adversely affect pregnancy and perinatal outcomes in assisted reproduction.
