Unlike female menopause, the male menopause is not widely discussed. But it shouldn't be like that. Men often blow their masculinity, reducing the time of active life while courageously ignoring menopause manifestations. In contrast to women, the extinction of "sterner sex" life functions is slow, but it starts much earlier.

Male menopause deficiency arises due to the fact that the body is reduced in production of sex hormone. The level of this hormone reaches a maximum at 30 years. From 30-35 years its production begins to decline steadily - in a healthy person - by 1-3% per year. As the result at 40-45 year up to 10% of men experience manifested symptoms of male menopause deficiency, and by 60 years the number increases to 20%.

How it happens?

Male menopause begins to attack on all fronts at once. But men tend to pay their attention to sexual problems only: decreased libido, less and less of their "happy" spontaneous erections in the morning, and at the right moment with the partner... there happens something awkward. Sexual acts occur less often, the reach of orgasm becomes more difficult. All this is accompanied by general symptoms - reduced muscle strength, flabby muscles, hair loss, often appears so-called "beer belly". Furthermore superimposed psychological problems appear: fatigue, irritability, feelings of insecurity, depression, insomnia, memory and motivation. There is no longer the desire to break the wall with a punch. And simply keeping in the brain the several tasks becomes a challenge.

The impact of prostate

Specific changes in the prostate comes with age. Its transition zone begins to grow and may increase in weight from 1 to 100 grams. At the same time nodules are formed inside it that compress the urethra. This phenomenon is called an adenoma. Its main symptoms are difficulty and pain during urination, especially at nighttime. The older man is, the greater chances of developing adenoma he has: at the age of 50 about 50% of men suffer from adenoma, at 60 - 60%, and the probability increases with age. A timely visit to an urologist from the very beginning of the climacteric period will help to identify this process and prevent complications.

Age is not important

The first signs of menopause deficiency man can experience as at 35 years, so at 70. There are those lucky whom the heredity helps. If the father till the great age remained in full "male force", perhaps, his son is destined to be the same. But the gene has not the key role all the time. Healthy way of life, as well as hormone therapy prescribed by your doctor, can "move away" the time of extinction for a good dozen years. So the main advice to men: even if you do not have any of the above symptoms, after 45 years consult urologist on a regular basis (every six months). If you experience at least 2-3 symptoms of menopause deficiency - check with a doctor as soon as possible. Analysis of hormome levels can help to determine whether the fatigue and irritability are simply a consequence of tiredness or it's time to seek the help of medicine.

TOP-8 of men's enemies


All the cartoons depicting the helpless drooping cigarette are the bitter truth. After all, the main "effect" from the influence of nicotine on the body is into the resistant spasm, i.e. narrowing of blood vessels. The narrowing includes those vessels that supply blood to the penis itself, and to testes, which produce up to 95% of male hormone. What is the most nightmarish: in log-time smokers with aging a complete blockage of vessels of the penis may occur. But this without timely treatment means enduring impotence.

Tiredness and stress.

Namely their impact urologists bind with that in men living in large cities the problems with male hormone level are more common and starts much earlier. Workaholism and potency, as can be seen, the two are incompatible. Men's health will not last long without a good rest, all-night sleep (at least 8 hours).
