Male Menopause And Its Symptoms
By UPHI Hospital, March, 5 2019

Women may not be the only ones who go through hormonal changes; men also get a series of symptoms and changes while growing older, which can be compared to the effects of menopause. During male menopause, a drop in testosterone production occurs in men who are at the age of 50 or above. It’s mostly associated with hypogonadism. Both problems have lowered testosterone levels and similar symptoms. Testosterone is a hormone produced in the testes of males. It’s like fuel for your sex drive. It also causes changes during puberty, gives you mental and physical energy and regulates other main evolutionary features.

Male menopause is not the same as female menopause in numerous ways. Like, not all men experience it and it doesn’t involve a total shutdown of your reproductive organs. Though, sexual complications may arise as a result of your decreased hormone levels.

Symptoms of Male Menopause

Male menopause can be a reason for physical, sexual, and psychological issues. They usually worsen as you get older. They may include:

  • Low energy level
  • depression
  • reduced motivation
  • low self-confidence
  • difficulty in concentrating
  • insomnia
  • increase in body fat
  • reduced muscle mass
  • feeling physically weak
  • growth of breasts
  • low bone density
  • erectile dysfunction
  • low libido
  • infertility

You may also get swollen or tender breasts, decreased the size of a testicle, loss of body hair, and hot flashes. Lowered testosterone levels associated with male menopause have also been related to osteoporosis. In this condition, your bones become weak and fragile. They usually affect men at the same age as women entering menopause.
