Male Menopause and prostate hypertrophy


What is male menopause?

Women may not be the only ones who suffer the effects of changing hormones. Some doctors are noticing that their male patients are reporting some of the same symptoms that women experience in perimenopause and menopause.

Since men do not go through a well-defined period referred to as menopause, some doctors refer to this problem as androgen (testosterone) decline in the aging male, or what some people call low testosterone. Men do experience a decline in the production of the male hormone testosterone with aging.

Unlike menopause in women which represents a well-defined period in which hormone production stops completely, testosterone decline in men is a slower process.
