Male menopause is also known as andropause. This may occur in the later middle age of men when their hormone level is decreasing. Most of them face the same psychological problems that are faced by women during their menopause. In fact not all the men in the world are facing this problem. But some may experience the symptoms. Such symptoms include obesity, depression, memory loss, lack of concentration etc.
Some men face the problem of hormone level decreasing due to certain diseases like heart attack, cancer etc. Such diseases may lead to male menopause. Andropause in men is not completely identical to women menopause. Women menopause occurs when her ovary can not produce eggs. The estrogen level decreases gradually and then disappears. But hormone level in men may decrease but not entirely disappears. A man in 80 may also have children. So andropause is different. But some emotional problems are same.
Male menopause symptoms include the common problems of woman like night sweats, joint pain, and muscular pain and so on. Some men feel hot flashes like women. Hot flash is a hot prickly feeling in the back. Some of them face the problem of mood fluctuations, depression, memory loss etc. Mood changes mean that you may not even know how to react to some situations. Sometimes even a small thing will make you cry or get angry. Regular exercises, healthy and balanced food habit can help reducing the symptoms. On the other hand smoking, drinking and unhealthy diet may increase the symptoms.
