  • The increase in male life expectancy has raised issues concerning the impact of aging on the endocrine system and male fertility. This review focuses on the relationship of spermatogenesis to changes with age in androgen production and testicular morphology, the influence of age on semen parameters and chromosomal quality, and the impact of paternal age and pregnancy outcome. While age-related endocrine changes are well documented, those concerning semen parameters and consequent fertility are… CONTINUE READING
