Is there such a thing as male menopause?

The male equivalent to menopause is andropause, which is a steady drop in the levels of male sex hormones that affect fertility, sexual desire and sexual performance.

Unlike the female biological clock – the male biological clock doesn’t stop ticking, but it begins to wind down after time. This means even though older men can reproduce, men 35 or older have half the chance of fathering a child within a year, compared with a man 30 years old. The genetic quality of their sperm also declines significantly.
