This month, I want to share what I learned on advanced paternal age at this years Integrative Fertility Symposium from Dr. Turek, world renowned thought leader in men’s reproductive and sexual healthcare and research, and fellowship-trained, board-certified physician. We are all so used to hearing the term “advanced maternal age” and all the implications that come with it, but Dr. Turek, along with many other researchers, are working to understand “advanced paternal age.” His talk was very enlightening.

In addition to being a world-renowned physician and researcher, Dr. Turek is also a blogger! And, you guessed it, an award winning one at that. For that reason, I have chosen to let his blog post do the talking for this month’s topic, “advanced paternal age.” Here it is: Advanced Paternal Age
