(HealthDay News) -- First there was menopause. Now there's andropause.
That's what doctors are calling the symptoms of aging men, including changes in testicular tissue, sperm production and erectile function.
While women lose their fertility in menopause, men experience more gradual changes in their libido and fertility during andropause, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Andropause may contribute to medical problems including impotence, urinary tract infections, and an inflammation of the prostate.
Doctors recommend getting checked out if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
