Abstract [en]

Methods. aEuro integral A questionnaire was developed including background demographic data, symptoms possibly related to LOH and questions about mens thoughts and beliefs in a male climacteric. All men, 55-, 65- and 75-years old, living in Linkoping, Sweden ((n aEuroS== aEuroS1885)) received the questionnaire. Results. aEuro integral One thousand three hundred fifty-six ((72%%)) questionnaires were eligible for evaluation, 65.4%% of the responders had heard of a male climacteric, and 42.2%% believed it existed but only 3%% had sought medical advice for these symptoms. More than half believed that a male climacteric was related to decreased libido and less strong erections. Almost half of the men thought that decreased memory and//or dystymia and anxiousness were related to a male climacteric. Conclusions. aEuro integral The majority of men have heard of a male climacteric, but only a minority had consulted a practitioner about their symptoms. More information and knowledge are needed, for the general population to better motivate men to seek medical advice and also for the health care professionals to better deal with the symptoms of LOH.
