Menopause is the end of the female reproductive cycle and is commonly diagnosed when a woman has not had her period for 12 months. The average age for the onset of Menopause is 51 but can also happen in as early as your late 30’s. The precise method of determining if a woman is in Menopause is to measure the amount of follicle stimulating hormone levels in the blood. 

Leading up to Menopause, the ovaries produce fewer hormones, which cause a variety of changes in a woman’s body. Surgical removal of the ovaries and other medical conditions and treatments can also induce Menopause. 

The fluctuations in the hormones estrogen, testosterone and progesterone can cause your periods to become irregular and sometimes heavy. Other symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, brain fog, and headaches can soon follow.

Testosterone is classified as a steroid hormone in the Androgen group. The decline of testosterone is known as Andropause, sometimes referred to as the male version of Menopause. Beginning at 30, a man’s body makes less and less testosterone and around 40-55 the levels drop dramatically. 

The most common complaint is the low sexual desire of libido and any man that has erectile dysfunction should get his testosterone checked. The decline in testosterone can also make it more difficult to conceive a child. 

Men may also start to have signs and symptoms of lower testosterone levels like lower energy, decreased muscle mass and bone density and anemia. Low testosterone levels have also been associated with increased cardiovascular risk, mortality and increases in bad cholesterol.
