9 Intimate Questions Men Are Too Afraid to Ask (Answered Here)
Can I experience ‘menopause’ too?
Sudden lack of energy? Can’t shut your eyes at night? Have you suddenly gained extra weight?
Those symptoms may be caused by poor lifestyle choices – or they may be signs of andropause.
Unfortunately, women aren’t the only ones who can experience menopause; men can experience similar symptoms too and the medical term for the diagnosis is andropause.
In men, andropause happens when your male hormone levels change, such as decreased testosterone production, and it mostly appears after you turn 50. The most common symptoms are:
- Low energy and motivation
- Inability to focus
- Decreased libido
- Increased body fat
- Erectile dysfunction
- Fertility issues
If you notice this multitude of signs and you’re over 50, discussing them with a specialist can give you the proper diagnosis and treatment to start feeling better again.
