Dr B :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr B :

There are no increased risks with men, only with women as relates to age. There is an increased risk in birth defects in women over 35. Men do not have these risks

JACUSTOMER-fkiwpgw5- : As far as fertility goes, will there be issues with that or do men not pose the same risks
Dr B :

Men do not pose those risks, they can have children until they are over 80

JACUSTOMER-fkiwpgw5- : Thank you
