Thanks for your question. Sperm banks typically list their qualifications for donating sperm on their website, so you should look at some of them and see what they say. One example, California Cryobank, with 30 years of experience, limits sperm donors to age 38. Sperm quality does often decline as a man ages, and there are reports showing increased incidences of disorders such as schizophrenia in offspring conceived from men aged 50 and older. I hope this helps.
