Tick Tock! Male Biological Clock

Not a lot of men are aware that their sperm is ageing too. Men, just like women, cannot wait too long before trying to conceive in the conventional way.

Men can now freeze and store their sperm using Sppare.me home kit to allow themselves not to be stressed from the ticking biological clock, and have kids when they are ready to become fathers.

The Myth

For years we have heard the phrase “your biological clock is ticking” in reference to women, yet this phenomenon applies to men as well. Each year about 6 million Americans have fertility problems, and in approximately 40% of these cases, the fertility problems is attributed to the man. The possibility of being infertile probably threatens most men’s ego, however, this problem should not be ignored. Sppare.me is here to raise your awareness to the impact of age on male fertility.

Here is the thing: Charlie Chaplin, Pablo Picasso and Rod Stewart (who had babies at 73, 67 and 66) are the exception, not the rule.

How Age Impact Male Fertility

Studies show that the level of men’s androgens (male sex hormones) drops with age. One (and probably the most known) of the many androgens, is the testosterone. The drop in men’s androgens is accompanied by the reduction of sperm count, sperm quality, as well as sexuality and intimate relationship. The reduction of these elements increases the risk of male infertility and miscarriages, as well as preterm birth, birth defects, autism, schizophrenia and certain cancers in offspring.

One man’s biological clock may run faster than another. The speed of ticking depends on how well the man take care of himself and his overall health, including what he eats, whether he smokes and how much he exercises.

Preserving Male Fertility

We understand that although their sperm is ageing, men might not be ready yet to become parents. Therefore, Sppare.me offers men a comfortable, private and affordable alternative: freeze and store your sperm from the comfort of your own home, until you will be ready to become a father.
