When women go through the menopause, there are a series of distinct changes which take place due to ovulation ending and hormone production decreasing. Men do not go through such a distinct process as this but a decline in testosterone which occurs as men age which can cause a range of physical, emotional and mental issues.
As well as a decline in testosterone, some men experience symptoms that include:
Men may suffer from a number of these symptoms which can have a negative impact on their daily lives.
The consultant at Pall Mall Medical will perform a physical examination and discuss your symptoms with you. They will then take a series of blood tests, which will include measuring your testosterone levels.
If changes in mood and physical appearance or other symptoms are caused by lower testosterone levels then testosterone replacement therapy may help with symptoms such as a reduction in libido, depression, and fatigue. There are side-effects to hormone replacement therapy, so it’s important to discuss your options thoroughly with an expert before embarking on treatment.
The consultant may also recommend certain lifestyle changes, such as a new diet or exercise programme, medication, such as an antidepressant, to help with some of the symptoms of male menopause.
