Dr Nimesh Poudel considers it a very important discussion. If there are some who consider chances of men experiencing a phenomenon similar to that of a female menopause a myth, there are even more people who have never even heard of the condition. “Either way, awareness on the matter is long overdue,” says Dr Poudel. The condition is called andropause. Cases of it among men around or over 50 years of age is said to be quite common, but many remain oblivious to it. In Dr Poudel’s experience, many patients even tend to assume its symptoms to be results of psychological issues but clearly that’s not the case. He shares more about the condition with The Week.
