Allyson J Rosati et al, found in their study that the sperm mitochondrial DNA copy number (mtDNAcn) had a predictive value to evaluate couple fecundity. This is a population-based prospective cohort study. Their data showed that “Higher sperm mtDNAcn was associated with lower pregnancy probability within 12 months and longer TTP ( time-to-pregnancy).” However, “sperm mitochondrial DNA deletions (mtDNAdel) was not associated with TTP”1.
