“Male menopause” is also called andropause. It describes a drop in testosterone levels that
many men experience when they get older. This could begin from the 40s.
If you’re a man, testosterone is a hormone produced in your testes. It does more than fuel
your sex drive. It also fuels changes during puberty, fuels your mental and physical energy,
maintains your muscle mass, regulates your fight-or-flight response, and regulates other key
evolutionary features. “Male menopause” differs from female menopause in several ways.
For one thing, not all men experience it. For another, it doesn’t involve a complete shutdown
of your reproductive organs. However, sexual complications may arise as a result of your
lowered hormone levels.
“Male menopause” can cause physical, sexual, and psychological problems. They typically
worsen as men get older.
