As women age, sex hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone begin to gradually decline. The first phase is called Perimenopause. This phase is traditionally defined as the few years before menopause, when the menstrual cycle starts to change. However, Perimenopause is better defined by the first signs of gradual hormone decline and this technically starts when a women is in her early 20s. By 30, overall sex hormone decline is beginning to pick up speed. By 40,even more hormone changes, and this is often the final stages of Perimenopause, as the symptoms amplify and the menstrual cycle begins to change in character.
Menopause is defined as the complete cessation of the menstrual cycle, and the symptoms are the most distinct and severe. At this point, there is also an overall increased risk for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
A decrease in men’s testosterone level is a natural function of aging. For each year over age 30, the level of testosterone in men starts to slowly dip at a rate of around one percent annually. According to the American Diabetes Association, over 13 million men have low testosterone levels and that number is increasing.
This slow degradation over time manifests itself in a myriad of symptoms later in life but most typically results in increased body fat, lower muscle mass, lower libido, overall lower energy levels and increased risk for cardiovascular disease. It also can negatively effect sex drive and contribute to Erectile Dysfunction. The ADA reports that 70 percent of men with low testosterone levels have erectile dysfunction, while 63 percent have a low sex drive. I n cases where ED accompanies lower testosterone production, hormone replacement therapy may help rectify the ED (Cleveland Clinic, 2009).
