Male menopause

Andropause

Also known as the andropause, male menopause describes a range of conditions, from changes in mood to erectile problems

About

Male menopause refers to a variety of symptoms caused by low levels of testosterone — the male sex hormone vital to maintaining sexual and reproductive health. Around half of men over the age of 50 have low levels of testosterone in their bloodstream. We offer a wide range of treatments that can help.
