Have the men in your life experienced 'male menopause'?

By HERWriter Guide September 2, 2010 - 1:43pm

Officially known as Andropause, the male version of menopause sees a decrease of testosterone, loss of hair, depression, weight gain and erectile dysfunction. However, jokes about middle-aged divorces, toupees, Corvettes and hot young blonde women abound.

But on a more serious note, you can read more on andropause here, and how to deal with it if you feel your partner may be going through this: http://www.empowher.com/sex-amp-relationships/content/does-male-menopause-exist

But reading some blogs and chat boards, many people think andropause is not a male menopause at all- it's merely a sign of getting older and an 'excuse' for taking less responsibility in life and trying to reclaim the glory days of youth.

What do you think?

We're a group devoted to the education and support of something that will happen naturally to all of us at some stage: menopause. No longer called things like "the change" in quiet female-only groups; menopause is a normal stage of life that signals one part of life leaving, and a potentially fantastic one marching in! Some of us will need help, support and advice during this time, and some of us have lots of it to give. Light-hearted or troubled, we can swap experiences and stories, post questions and worries - all within a compassionate community that offers professional resources. Any woman, from 18 to 80, can benefit from membership! Let the fun and friendships begin...
