There’s a clock ticking somewhere close. Tick tock, tick tock!
A woman is 10% less fertile at 27, that’s when the biological clock starts ticking. New research has now found that there’s a limited window for fatherhood too – every year after the age of 30 testosterone levels drop by 1% in men and post 40, the sperms are associated with more genetic abnormalities.
So if you missed learning the birds and the bees of fertility in high school, let’s re-start your sexual education about making a baby that (probably) your teachers and parents never told you about.
