    Hello. I am 45 and OH is 54, we have decided to NTNP before I hit menopause and it's too late. (think I would always regret if i didn't and have been so broody recently) AF is regular and we are both quite healthy.
    Does anyone know if the age of the father affects how long the sperm can survive?
    We BD on Monday night and I ovulated later I think on Thursday night so 3 days after. I know that sperm can live upto 5 days but does this still apply for older mens?

    Thanks ladies, was a bit of a random question really but it’s easy to over scrutinise everything! :)

    I'm not sure either hon. I wudnt think so because u see men in there 60s having babies.
    Good luck ttc hon. We will be trying for our last babs next year when I will be 41 and hubby nearly 46. Its wonderful seeing older womon get pregnant I hate it that theres such a huge thing about having babies past 35. It's so wrong.
