The male menopause is marked by reduction in libido and increased sensitivity to external impression and irritability.
To some people not familiar with the subject, the heading will seem very funny and humorous. They associate the term menopause with woman only. I was surprised when I put the term “ male menopause “in the address bar of the goggle and goggle opened voluminous web pages concerning male menopause .menopause is psychological or rather psycho somatic condition and set of symptoms at a particular age or phase of human life . It is that phage when the production of hormones in thebody starts stopping or waning. The medical community is currently debating the issue of male menopause very hotly, whether or not men really do go through a well-defined menopause. Doctors say that male patients receiving hormone therapy with testosterone have reported relief of some of the symptoms associated with so-called male menopause. This phase is not limited to woman only. But their male counterparts also feel the symptoms when the male hormone starts stopping its activity. This is a different matter that the term menopause in its strictest sense can not be applied to man. Men do experience a decline in the production of the male hormone testosterone with aging. As man does not feel any menses its analogous and similar term for men should be testopasuse. Testopasuse like menopause is the phase of mans life when male hormone testosterone stops its active activity as in woman the stoppage of secretion of hormone oestrogen causes may annoying and depressing symptoms in woman similarly the stoppage activity of the testosterone produces many disagreeable and displaceable symptoms in the minds of men. male menopause is not a myth. It is a reality and grave reality. We admit it or not but it is reality
The term menopause signifies the female suffering. It is true that females suffer much more than their counterpart’s males. But menopause in males deserves more attention. Male menopause or testopasuse is generally ignored and is not given that attention because its symptoms are not that aggressive as of woman. In women the menopause event is sudden but in men it is slow gradual process. There is no outward visible manifestation as cessation of menstruation in woman with advancement of age physiological changes of aging occur and with little care that are either cured, controlled or managed. They do not pose a major problem in men. The only noticeable feature is reduction of libido and sexual performance which again is very slow process. And mostly men are used to it and accept it as a reality. But some people rely on drugs and injections to increase their libido. But libido is not kept in capsules or a pill it is in mind it is very easy to depress the human mind than excited it. The Viagra is such a drug which is more abused than used for erectile dysfunction. The decreasing level of libido is the major concern of most men at their menopause age. They go from pillar to post to enhance their sex vigor and libido. The other dominant concern and change of this phage is irritability of temper. Men become very irritable at this phage. They start yelling on very trifling matters. Their nerves become so intense and wound up that they area irritated by small matters. They feel irritated an angry all the time. Their behavior becomes very aggressive and violent towards family members especially wife and children. I have observed that some men become very suspicious towards their offspring at this phase. Many diseases of man erupt at this phase. The diabetic are generally get worsened at this phase .The increase in fat disposition and osteoporosis problems are like woman. Change in ageing and change in menopause are two different things. The change of male menopause is not easily differentiated from changes in aging. Unlike menopause in women which represents a well-defined period and phage with marked characteristic in which hormone production stops completely, testosterone decline in men is a slower and gradual process. The testes, unlike the ovaries, do not run out of the substance it needs to make testosterone. A healthy male may be able to make sperm well into his eighties or longer
