Keywords: age-related androgen deficiency, andropause, fertility, spermatozoa, testosterone


Hormones are the «conductors» of the body. We studied hormonal level of man all ages. Andropause is more and more serious problem of male health, which leads to more detailed study. Age androgen deficiency cause decrease of sexual function. Age androgen deficiency is a clinical and biochemical syndrome, associated with testosterone deficiency. Testosterone is main hormone of men health, sexual function, lipid metabolism, bone tissue metabolism, muscle mass, regulation of hemopoiesis, immune functions. We measured concentration of sex hormones, prostatic acid phosphatase, ejaculat parameters and made photographs of pathological spermatozoa’s. We studied the concentrations such hormones as: testosterone, estradiol, prolactin, follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormones; the parameter of the ejaculate and the level of prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) in 3 groups of men – group I – age from 19 to 30 years (15 people), II group – from 30 to 40 years (34 people) and III group – from 50 to 60 years (28 people). The average age was 42,29 ± 13,60 years. In all three groups concentration of hormones does not come out the reference intervals, but clearly shows a tendency decrease concentration of the main male hormone - testosterone and increase other hormones. Such changes are lead to abnormal function of the reproductive system. The results shown that 30-year-old men begins decrease concentration of the main male androgen - testosterone. As a result, the sexual system undergoes irreversible changes. It was confirm results of parameters of ejaculate (decrease in volume, increase in viscosity and pH, the presence of agglutination and an increase in the degenerative forms of spermatozoa). Also was investigated prostate function, which is expressed in an increase concentration PAP in 2 times. In photographs we saw changes of ejaculate in over 30 years old men. As the result, we shown that 30-ages man are in risk group, because their fertility is go down and timely correction is required.
