Andropause: What Is Male Menopause and How to Manage It Naturally


Many people are familiar with the term 'menopause', which refers to the end of a woman’s reproductive years. But did you know that men also experience hormonal changes as they age?

In Men, this condition is called as Andropause, or Male Menopause, and it can affect one's physical and emotional well-being.

Andropause is characterized by a gradual decline in testosterone levels, which will be in peak levels in early adulthood and then drop by about 1% per year after age 40.

Some men may not notice any changes, while others may experience symptoms such as reduced sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, mood swings, and sleep problems.

Unlike women menopause, which is a sudden drop in hormone production. But Andropause is a slow and subtle process that can vary from person to person.

Medically, andropause is known by the term late-onset hypogonadism or androgen deficiency in aging males (ADAM).

Andropause happens when testosterone goes down and a protein called SHBG (Sex hormone binding globulin) goes up. This makes less testosterone available for your body to use.

Many influencers around the world are advocating for increased awareness of male menopause, challenging stereotypes and encouraging open discussions about this natural aspect of aging.

If you or someone you know is experiencing andropause symptoms, do not hesitate to consult your doctor and seek professional help. 

Experts advise that changes in lifestyle, such as maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, and good sleep, can attain healthy testosterone levels naturally.
