Men experience a more insidious menopause, which can last for decades with symptoms such as decreased sex drive, the development of depression and other physical and mental disorders.
This is the name of the male menopause.
With age, all men experience a decrease in testosterone levels. Typically, it starts in the early 40’s, and becomes more pronounced the older the man gets.
As with women, the degree to which men are affected by the hormonal changes is very different.
The typical reactions to low testosterone are:
- Decreased sexual desire
- Emotional, psychological and behavioral changes
- Decreased muscle mass
- Loss of muscle strength
- Increase of body fat on upper and central body
- Mild to moderate erection problems
