Do Men Experience a “Change of Life” as They Age?

“Manapause” ,if you will, while not quite the female equivalent of menopause is still marked by distinctive physiological changes in men.

Unlike women, men experience hormonal changes gradually over a period of many years. A man’s testosterone level peaks around age 20, and then steadily declines from about 40 on, so ultimately it’s about 50% less by the time he is 80 years old. The result can sometimes be a condition called “andropause,” which potentially affects millions of American men.

The symptoms – irritability, changes in sexual function and erectile quality, low desire – can have a very real impact on a guy’s sex life and his overall relationship.
