In the United States the data states that andropause syndrome is experienced by around 15 percent of men aged 40-60, but only about 5 percent get treatment. Some men have even experienced andropause syndrome since the age of 30, but with a relatively small amount of about 5 percent (pangkahila, 2007). Based on the results of the initial survey conducted by researchers on 7-8 August 2018 in the RW of Perhentian Marpoyan Sub-District, Marpoyan Damai Subdistrict, from 10 respondents, there were 4 results (40 percent) who knew about andropause and 6 respondents (60 percent) did not know about andropause aim : identify men's knowledge about andropause in RW 11 of Perhentian Marpoyan Village, Marpoyan Damai District, Pekanbaru.
