Do men experience menopause? what are the symptoms of menopause in men?


lyka - August 28

Yes! Like women, men gets menopause too. They would also experience a drop in their hormone levels.


juliet - August 28

Definitely yes! Symptoms are: Loss of muscle mass, higher amount of body fat, less energy, less interest in sex. Talk to your our doctor if you have these symptoms for further explanations.


danessa - August 28

I think the symptoms in men are not noticeable because they don't have periods. And one of the reasons it is hard to detect is because their testosterone levels drop gradually.


may-anne - August 28

Doctors believe that it takes a longer time for men to drop hormone levels than woman. It is almost hard for them to tell when will it begin for most men.

would you consider lifestyle change in favor of physical activity and healthy eating? this will help.

have you heard of "DHEA"? DHEA or Dehydroepianodrosterone acts as a replenisher pumping life into various processes such as lowering cholesterol levels, regulating healthy blood pressure and reducing fat.

i think i've read this DHEA thing somewhere in this site. sounds interesting. is this supplements? more info pls...


olivia - September 22

from what i've heard, DHEA is a steroid hormone that is made by the adrenal glands. studies done on DHEA shows it has many benefits.


izzy - September 23

improved sense of well being
alertness and stamina
enhanced sexual interest and libido
DHEA supplements are available over the counter.
