Male Menopause Symptoms

Male Menopause Symptoms

Male menopause differs from female menopause in that not all men will experience it and it doesn’t include a complete shutdown of the male reproductive organs, although sexual complications may arise as symptoms of lowered hormone levels.

Male menopause can cause physical, sexual, and psychological problems, which typically worsen as a man gets older. Symptoms include:

  • Depression
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping
  • Increased body fat
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Gynecomastia (development of breasts)
  • Low energy
  • Feelings of physical weakness
  • Decreased bone density
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced libido
  • Infertility
  • Decreased motivation
  • Lowered self-confidence
  • Feelings of depression or sadness
  • Difficulty concentrating

Rare side effects include swollen or tender breasts, decreased testicle size, loss of body hair, and hot flashes. Low levels of testosterone associated with male menopause have also been linked to osteoporosis, a condition where bones become weak and brittle. These atypical symptoms, caused by reduced levels of testosterone, typically affect men at the same age when women enter menopause.
