Materials and methods: This study is a descriptive cross-sectional research conducted on 600 men living in the city of Arak in 2017. The subjects were selected through cluster sampling and qADAM was used for collecting data including three areas (level of energy, psychological and sexual). The data were analyzed through descriptive and inferential statistics (independent t-test and ANOVA) and using SPSS 16. Results: The results showed that the average questionnaire score increased with an increase in age up to 50 years and above. Correlation test for the three subscales of physical, psychological, and sexual showed that the psychological subscale had the highest correlation with Andropause score (p < 0. 05). Among the items related to the subscales, the statement” I feel my sex drive has decreased” with mean and standard deviation of 3. 62 ± 1. 06 had the highest correlation with Andropause and the statement “ I feel I have no value for society” with mean and standard deviation of 1. 7 ± 0. 86 had the lowest correlation with Andropause. Conclusion: Andropause age in Arak is 50 years and above. Average questionnaire score showed a positive direct relation with age. Decreased sex drive had the highest correlation and losing social value had the lowest correlation with Andropause state.
