ABSTRACT
The article offers information on male fertility rates which are based on growing ages, and their roles at fertility for reproduction. It informs that fertility rate of men decreases with ages, and increase risks of higher genetic disorders of their born babies. It mentions risk of decreased sperm at fertilizing eggs in female. It highlights the results of greater fertility rates among men who are less than 30 years in comparison to greater than 30 years.
