EVEN WITH ANDROPAUSE, MEN ARE STILL FERTILE TILL OLD AGE

 — Gynaecologist

 

 

 

A gynaecologist, Dr. Kenneth Adedugba, of Life Care Hospital, Egbe, Lagos, on Sunday said men do not experience menopause like women, but would produce sperm until old age.

Adedugba told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that andropause, which many people refer to as male menopause, is only a hormonal decline which comes with old age.

“Men will continue to produce sperm until they die. The term ‘male menopause’ does not exist at all. The male reproductive system does not cease to work completely in a man’s life time.

“That is why you see 80- to 90-year old men still having children,’’ he said.

“A woman in her 40s or early 50s undergoes bodily changes associated with reduction of the female sex hormones, which means the end of her periods known as menopause,’’ he said.

Olalere further noted that andropause is the time in a man’s life when the hormoness naturally start to decline, usually during his early 50s, adding that this decline continues till death.
