Male menopause is not a true medical term. The term menopause is defined as the stopping of menstrual periods, so it is not technically possible for a man to have menopause. The term has been used because some men seem to experience similar symptoms to those of women approaching menopause.
Signs and symptoms said to be associated with the decline in hormones in men can include
- sexual problems,
- low energy,
- decreased motivation,
- low self-confidence,
- increased body fat,
- reduced muscle mass,
- insomnia, and
- other sleeping difficulties.
