Male sexual health Myth..!

Let’s talk about male sexual health MYTH today.

MYTH: Male menopause is real.

FACT: No, it’s not real. The term “menopause” only pertains to the female condition when the ability to reproduce is halted.
Testosterone is the male sex hormone that is needed for growth of body hair, building strong bones and muscles, and producing sperm.
As men age, testosterone levels (T-levels) can decline because of medication, illness, injury or lifestyle factors. This drop in testosterone is inaccurately classified as “male menopause,” when in fact, should simply be considered a symptom of male aging


• Testosterone production/levels decrease gradually beginning around age 30
•Sperm production does not stop
•Not all men experience low testosterone and sperm production

Female menopause FACTS
1. Estrogen (female sex hormone) production drops rapidly beginning around age 40
2. Egg production stops completely
3. All women experience low estrogen and egg production.

Causes of low testosterone
1. Certain medications
2. Hormone disorders
3. Radiation/chemotherapy treatment
