✓ Valid number ✕ Invalid number
Getting older can cause men to experience physical, emotional, and psychological changes. Similar to how women experience menopause as they age, men can have mood swings, fatigue, decreased sexual drive, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, and many other symptoms. These symptoms and changes are known as “manopause.” 
In this article, you’ll learn more about the symptoms of manopause and the treatments available to get you back in the game.

What is Manopause?

Manopause can cause significant disturbances to your quality of life. While manopause isn’t an official medical term, it’s a popular phrase for describing the wide variety of changes that can occur in men as they get older. These changes in mood, sex drive, and more typically begin around age 50 or later. The causes are due to:

Declining Testosterone Levels: Testosterone levels tend to decrease with age in some men, leading to sexual dysfunction, changes in mood, and a decrease in energy levels.

Aging: As mentioned, the process of aging itself can cause various physical and psychological changes in men.

Lifestyle Factors: Stress, not enough sleep, and a poor diet can all lead to symptoms associated with manopause.

Medical Conditions: Some medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease can all influence a man’s health, potentially leading to manopause symptoms.

What are the Symptoms of Manopause?

The symptoms associated with manopause can vary depending on each man’s particular health, age, and lifestyle. They can include:
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Changes in memory
  • Difficulty concentrating

What are the Symptoms of Manopause?

The key to treating manopause is typically addressing low testosterone levels. There are several testosterone replacement treatment options available depending on which one is best for your particular health needs:

Testosterone Cypionate:
Testosterone cypionate is a powerful treatment for increasing your testosterone levels to their optimum levels for best performance. Most patients start feeling the benefits of testosterone cypionate injections around three to six weeks from the first injection.

Hormone Pellet Therapy:
Also known as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), it helps restore testosterone levels in men and fights back against the aging process. Unlike injections or pills, pellet therapy doesn’t require weekly or daily reminders to take the hormone therapy – instead, pellets are placed under the skin and naturally dissolve, releasing consistent levels of testosterone throughout the body over 3 to 4 months.

Lifestyle Improvements & Medical Conditions

If the cause of your symptoms is due to poor diet, lack of sleep, not enough exercise, or a chronic medical condition (such as obesity), a specialist can create a customized treatment plan to address these issues.

Benefits of Treatment

If you experience any manopause symptoms, treatment can get you back in the game and potentially have you feeling better than ever. The benefits include:

  • Improved mood
  • Increased energy levels
  • Increased libido and enhanced sex drive
  • Preservation of muscle mass
  • Feeling rested and energized
  • Overall improved quality of life

What To Expect with Treatment
