CHANGES WITH AGING: REPRODUCTIVE FUNCTION

 

 

Female Reproductive Function

Women lose the capacity to reproduce well before they reach the average life span, noted as menopause. Peri-menopausal changes commonly start from age 35.

Men also have changes in the reproductive system but do not lose their fertility. This period is referred to as andropause.

The use of HGH [Human Growth Hormone] is commonly used to support the bodies own hormone production. Whilst controversy remains as to the effectiveness of this treatment, by the time a number of 25 year independent studies have been completed, you may have lost your opportunity to support youthful levels of hormones. With women entering motherhood at later stages, this is becoming more of a concern.

 

Egg Production

A rapid decline in eggs produced by the ovary until at menopause very few, if any, eggs can be seen in the ovary. The ovary then becomes scarred and withered.


Oestrogen Production

Is markedly reduced resulting in hot flushes and changes in the uterus and the vagina.

Estrogen Supporting Supplements

Endometrial Linings

The endometrial lining of the uterus thins and the connective tissue increases. Thinning of the vaginal lining and reduced secretions can cause pain with sexual intercourse and can contribute to urinary incontinence.

 

Breast Tissue

Changes are attributed to hormonal changes, and cysts may appear. The stretching of ligaments and the loss of muscular tone alter the contour of the breast, resulting in sagging. Many women notice an increase in breast size with age.

Male Reproductive Function

The decline in reproductive ability in men is more gradual since sperm cells continue to be formed. In effect, men retain their fertility for life, albeit the health of the sperm decreases with age resulting in reduced mobility and greater risk of birth defects.
