Yes, though it is not so noticeable as in the case of women. Experts have named it male climacterium, andropause, low T or male menopause. It involves a gradual decline in testicular function, with the subsequent decrease in testosterone levels, hence the name low T.

Andropause usually comes hand in hand with a series of symptoms, including a decrease in testicular size, increased prostate volume, altered erectile function, increased body fat, drop in testosterone levels, etc.
