This however is mostly recorded among older men, and may not have an overly troubling effect as the female menopause where everything about productivity comes to either a prolong pause or complete seizure.

Mayo clinic staff noted that gradual decline of testosterone is only about 1 percent in a year and on the average, after the age of 30.

Meanwhile, the law of nature is binding on every one, both female and male as each advance in age; men are reported to notice a change in sexual activities such as less sexual urge, erectile dysfunction, reduced continuous erection, even during sleep, while the testes may also grow smaller.

They may also notice a reduced or increased urge for sleep; they may  begin to accumulate much body fats, develop swollen or tender breasts, less strength, shrinking muscle, loss of body hair(in some cases).

Certain changes might also lead to emotional imbalance, where there may feelings of sadness, loss of self confidence, depression, and memory problem.
