Have you ever wondered, “Can a man get the menopause?” The answer is yes – well, sort of. Men experience a similar phenomenon to the menopause called andropause.
Sometimes known as “male menopause”, andropause is a natural process in the body that is characterised by hormonal shifts which can have a significant impact on men’s well-being as they age.
Here at Dr SW Clinics, our founder and pioneer in regenerative and functional medicine, Dr Sherif Wakil, is dedicated to increasing awareness of andropause symptoms and male menopause treatment at his clinic in London.
In this blog, we’ll explore the main symptoms of male menopause, the hormonal changes in men that cause andropause, andropause treatment options, and more – so keep reading!
What are the Symptoms of the Male Menopause?
While every man may not experience symptoms of andropause, it’s important to be aware of them to know when to seek andropause treatment.
Some men develop depression, loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and other physical and emotional symptoms when they reach their late 40s to early 50s. Other symptoms common in men this age are mood swings and irritability, loss of muscle mass and reduced ability to exercise.
Dr Sherif Wakil has identified 5 key symptoms of men’s menopause, including:
Reduced Libido: A noticeable decline in sexual desire, or libido, is a common symptom of the male menopause. This can lead to lessened interest and satisfaction in sexual activities, which can impact both physical and emotional aspects of a man’s life.
Decreased Muscle Mass: Andro pause often triggers changes in body composition and can cause a reduction in muscle mass, resulting in decreased strength and endurance and affecting overall physical performance.
Fatigue: Persistent fatigue is a symptom that many men experience during andropause. Hormonal fluctuations can cause feelings of tiredness and a lack of energy, impacting daily activities and overall quality of life.
Mood Swings: Hormonal changes in men during the male menopause can influence the body’s mood regulation. This can cause unpredictable mood swings and heightened irritability, frustration, or sadness without any apparent cause.
Erectile Dysfunction: During andropause, hormonal changes can also contribute to Erectile Dysfunction (ED). If you’re experiencing a consistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection, it may be time to explore erectile dysfunction treatment.

What Causes the Male Menopause?
If you’ve been considering whether men can go through menopause, you might be thinking what actually causes it.
Andropause is primarily caused by hormonal changes or hormonal imbalances in men – particularly the decline in testosterone levels, which is a central male sex hormone.
With age, typically late 40s to early 50s, the testes start to produce less testosterone, which can contribute to the physical and emotional changes associated with andropause. As well as aging, lifestyle factors and genetics play crucial roles in the onset and severity of andropause symptoms.
Poor nutrition, lack of exercise, heightened stress levels, and inadequate sleep can all exacerbate these hormonal imbalances, creating a feedback loop that enhances the andropause symptoms, leading to anxiety or depression.
Recognising the main causes of andropause can empower men to seek effective andropause treatment, like those offered through the O Concept™ created by Dr Sherif Wakil, designed with the upmost empathy and confidentiality.
