Our Male Menopause Main Article provides a comprehensive look at the who, what, when and how of Male Menopause

Definition of Male menopause

Male menopause: A controversial concept reflecting the belief that the decline in testosterone levels observed in men as they age causes a clinically significant and potentially treatable set of symptoms, including sexual dysfunction, mood changes, weight gain, fatigue, and other nonspecific symptoms. While testosterone therapy has been recommended to treat men with midlife symptoms of low testosterone levels, the value of male hormone therapy remains controversial because there are few long-term studies about the effects or benefits of testosterone supplementation.
