Women are used to being told their age might impact on fertility, but it’s newer for men – and just as important, says a new report.

Pregnant women were found to be at higher risk of gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia and premature birth when the father of their baby was over 45. Babies were found to be at higher risk of low birth weight and birth defects, and more likely to be diagnosed with psychiatric disorders and childhood cancer as they grew up. These efects were not mitigated by men having a younger partner. The main takeaway is men need to know their fertility limits and consider banking sperm before 35. Welcome to the club, guys.

About Healthy Magazine

Introducing the brand new healthy! We’ve got a fresh new look and have spruced up our content, including challenging new franchises, a dedicated vegan section and inspiring real life stories. Our central theme this issue is mental wellbeing – a challenge that doesn’t seem to be getting any easier, even as we are getting better at talking about it. Hopefully our ‘safe space’ is just that – somewhere you can explore and develop your own mental health. We’ve also investigated the gender disparity in football, explored the growing (though illegal) trend of microdosing, and chatted to chef turned wellness advocate Lorraine Pascale about her own mental wellbeing journey. Plus, we’ve brought in an expert panel to review all our content, ensuring you’re getting the very best and latest health, fitness, food, beauty and wellness advice.
