Most people will be familiar with the menopause and the misery it causes for so many women — but doctors want to raise awareness of its male equivalent. 

Male menopause describes the period in an adult man’s life when his hormone levels crash, causing a host of symptoms that shatter sufferers’ confidence or are outright debilitating — including erectile dysfunction, depression, anxiety and rapid fat gain.

The transition is medically known as andropause. Unlike menopause experienced by women, andropause is marked by a more gradual change.

So, how much do you know about male menopause? DailyMail.com spoke with the experts to break down everything you need to know.
