age physiological clinical decline onset women symptoms

In men and women many physiological and psychological symptoms and biochemical changes attributed to an aging-related decline in gonadal hormones. Menopause in women is based on the end of the reproductive cycle associated with ovarian failure, and is characterized by the relatively abrupt onset of well-recognized symptoms. In contrast, the term "andropause" has been used to describe the slow, steady decline of testosterone in men as they age. This process is not universal in men, is more insidious in its onset, and its clinical presentation is more subtle and varied. For these reasons it has been suggested that androgen decline in the aging male (ADAM) is a more appropriate designation for this syndrome (Morales et al.).
