Pre-menopause, post-menopause and male climacteric tests
E-Zlab is specialized in blood work & medical tests at home & work.
Estrogen and Progesterone are the hormones responsible for reproduction in women and Testosterone for men.
In men, the testicles secrete testosterone and in women the ovaries secrete it in a small amount. Both in men and in women, testosterone influences sexual desire.
For men, the male climacteric is accompanied by a drop in the level of testosterone and in case of women menopause is associated to a reduction in the levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.
In general, the symptoms of the male climacteric appear in men aged between 45 and 65 years old. Menopause appears in women older than 50 years of age.
Here are some related symptoms :
Male climacteric : insomnia, erectile troubles, sexual desire (libido) diminishment, lack of energy, mood swings, excessive sweat, weight gain and others.
Menopause : hot flashes, nocturnal sweat, sleeping troubles, sexual desire (libido) diminishment, mucous membranes (at the vaginal level) dryness, mood swings and others.
