Hold on men—women aren’t the only ones who experience the ups and downs of menopause, men do too. It’s not actually called MANopause, but it might as well be. The actual term for male menopause is andropause and this condition affects nearly 20 to 30 percent of all men. However, unlike menopause men can experience the symptoms of andropause for decades.

Now that you are older more changes are coming, and they can be just as confusing.
