Andropause, you are menopause in Men
The result of natural ageing, my male friend
The lowering of Testosterone occurs in every male
It will occur sooner or later after the age of 50 year
It may be in the mind or natural ageing
There may injury to the testes from kicking
Cancer of the testes may need surgery or radiation
Orchitis of the testes occur in mumps and other viral infection
All these causes will reduce the production of testosterone
Male menopause will result from the loss of male hormone
Without male hormones your body muscles will weaken
Your sex desire will then need to be strengthened
Replacement of male hormones will help your body
Your increase of libido will make sex a different story
No more tiredness or hot flushes like the menopausal woman
Your muscles will grow; you will feel like a new man
-An original poem by Kenneth Kee
