Andropause Symptoms

What are Andropause Symptoms?

As we’ve said, andropause is not a sudden condition; it creeps up on you gradually.  You might detect the onset of andropause symptoms if any or all of these occur:

  • Low sex drive and erections not as strong as they were.  Nocturnal erections don’t happen as often, either.
  • Mood changes or depression.
  • Insomnia or other sleep difficulties.
  • Low energy levels.
  • Lean body mass reduces along with muscle mass and strength.
  • A loss of body hair.
  • Bone density decreases resulting in osteoporosis.  Osteoporosis can lead to the occurrence of bone fractures and breaks.
  • An increase in fat around internal organs.

Understand that these are symptom guidelines.  Andropause affects different men in different ways and to different degrees.  Some men get one or two of these symptoms, and may just notice the other andropause symptoms occurring minimally or not at all.

Testosterone Side Effects

The symptoms listed above may be a result of low testosterone. There are various medical solutions, including testosterone replacement therapy. If you think you may be experiencing andropause, take the ADAM Questionnaire below and speak to a medical professional.

ADAM Questionnaire

As you work your way through this website, take the ADAM Questionnaire if you’re concerned that you might have andropause.  It’s a simple and effective way to detect this condition.  Now, just because you have some of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have andropause.  It could be some other cause, so a blood test is the best way to make a diagnosis. 

If you feel you may have andropause, take the ADAM Questionnaire
