Much discussion lately about advanced paternal age and reproduction. Wonder what others are suggesting to their male patients who are looking at delaying fatherhood. Freeze sperm now just to be sure or carry on, there won't be an issue. Evidence not there currently to advocate freezing in those situations but a study looking into it perhaps using PGS with young vs mature sperm might be fruitful.
