    Default How old is your 'baby daddy' ?

    There's always a fair amount of discussion about a woman's age when it comes to TTC & pregnancy.
    So I just wondered how old is your DH, DF, DP etc?
    If UTD did their age have any bearing on you getting pregnant? Or are you struggling TTC because of their age?

    My DH turns 41 in a few days time & I do worry a little that his age may have some impact on our ttc journey.
    Only time will tell I guess!

    Just interested to throw the spotlight on the men & hear you ladies thoughts

    27. We started IVF at 24, so age did not have any bearing on our issues.

    Our donor was either a year younger or a year older than me, so 23 or 25!

    My DH was 39 when conceived and he's 41 today. We fell pregnant on our first attempt so age wasn't a factor (I'm 38) with conceiving but it was an issue when it came to the tests as it does push the risks up.
