Male Menopause - How Does The Treatments Works

Aug 15, 2008
Menopause is what women experience when they reach a certain age where their bodies stop producing hormones. It is a point where women will no longer be able to reproduce and it is also a point where their lives will change.

However, it is also a fact that males also experience this kind of condition. It has been found that men will also experience the so-called male menopause when they reach a certain age. But unlike women where they stop producing hormones instantly, men experience a decline in production of hormones.

Sometimes, male menopause is also called the mid-life crisis where male hormone levels drop that often results to depression, anxiety, and decline of interest in sex. As a male, you have to prepare to face this condition because when you reach a certain age (usually at late 50's to early 60's), you will also experience this condition.

First of all, you need to be able to identify the signs and symptoms of male menopause. Usually, the symptoms are very much like what a female experiences when they go through menopause. It will include depression, irritability, sadness, low interest in sex, anxiety, hot flashes, sweating, erectile dysfunction, concentration problems, and memory problems.

Erectile dysfunction can also be caused by other conditions, such as a disease. However, the low testosterone level can also contribute to this condition.

If you suspect that you are going through male menopause, it is recommended that you should consult your doctor about it first before jumping into a conclusion and getting treated for it. The doctor will conduct a series of tests to confirm that you are really going through male menopause. To do this, the doctor will test your testosterone level and also your symptoms. If it is indeed male menopause, the doctor can recommend treatments to ease the symptoms.

Today, there are already treatments for male menopause where it can make it easier for you to cope up with the condition. It will not necessarily mean that it can treat the condition, but you have to consider that the treatment's aim for male menopause, like female menopause, is to lessen the symptoms.

There is hormone replacement therapy for men who have low testosterone level. This treatment can help you lessen the symptoms associated with male menopause. This treatment is called testosterone replacement therapy. With this treatment, you can lessen the effects of male menopause and can definitely help you go through it.

In fact, this therapy has been found effective. It gradually increased the muscle mass, the mental functioning, bone density and it also enabled men to get interested in sex again.

However, testosterone replacement therapy should only be done with close supervision of a professional. Too much of testosterone injected in your body can produce unwanted side effects. The professional will be able to adjust the doses in accordance with the effects you experience during your first testosterone replacement therapy.

In time and also after a few sessions, the professional will be able to know the correct dosage for you.

If you cannot tolerate the injections, there are also oral capsules that you can take for this therapy. There are also testosterone patches where it can provide a steady release of testosterone.

If you don't want this therapy through injection, through oral capsules, or through patches, you can consider getting implants. The testosterone implants are inserted in the lower abdomen or hip under anesthetic. This can provide treatment that can last up to 6 months.

These are the treatments that you can consider when you are going through male menopause. So, if you are at that certain age where sex doesn't interest you anymore, and where you are more motherly, you can consider getting a testosterone replacement therapy. Always remember that this therapy should only be done with close supervision of a professional to avoid unwanted side effects.
