How A Man Can Tell If He Has Reached Male Menopause

What is menopause in men?

The changes in hormones that happen to women as they age are often called "menopause," but there is a word for the same thing that happens to men. Andropause is the word, which can also be called "many menopause." Healthline says that andropause is when the levels of male hormones change because of getting older.

Most of the time, these age-related changes show up as symptoms like low testosterone, low androgen, and late-onset hypogonadism. Andropause, also called "male menopause," is when a man 50 years old or older stops making testosterone. It is often linked to hypogonadism, which is another condition with similar symptoms and low testosterone levels.

Andropause, or the change in men's hormones, is different from women's menopause in a number of ways. One important difference is that it doesn't happen to all men. It is also different because a man's reproductive organs are not shut down completely. But if testosterone levels drop, there may be problems with sexuality.

Signs of menopause in men

Healthline says that andropause, also called male menopause, can cause physical, sexual, and mental problems that usually get worse as men age. Some signs that a man is going through male menopause are low energy, sadness or depression, less motivation, and less self-confidence.

Other side effects include trouble concentrating, trouble sleeping or insomnia, more body fat, less muscle mass and feelings of physical weakness, gynecomastia, or the development of breasts, erectile dysfunction, decreased bone density, decreased libido, infertility, swollen or painful breasts, loss of body hair, smaller testicles, and hot flashes.

How to treat menopause in men

Healthline says that unless male menopause is causing a man a lot of trouble or messing up his life, he should be able to deal with the symptoms without treatment. Most of the time, the hardest part of treating male menopause may be getting the man to tell the doctor about the symptoms he's been having.

But the most common way to treat the symptoms of male menopause is to lead a healthier life. For example, a doctor might tell a man to eat well, exercise regularly, get enough sleep, and try to lessen his stress. People think that all men can benefit from these ways of living. Adopting these ways of living can also make a big difference in a man's overall health.
