Aging and Reproduction
The main function of human reproduction is mainly influenced by age to produce sex cells and hormones. Aging process affects reproductive systems of both men and women. The most striking age related changes in female reproductive system occur at menopause, while changes in the male reproductive system occur more gradually over a longer period of time. Despite this, a modern technology has been unable to extend the reproductive system in women, and the age of onset of menopause remains remarkably constant. Although many factors contribute to the age-related decline in human fertility, data suggested that the maternal aging renders the most significant impact.
