What's Male Menopause Anyway?

So what's male menopause anyway? And does it really exist? All of us have heard of female menopause, but MALE menopause? Naah… 

Well, surprisingly for many, there is now evidence that male menopause does officially exist. While there was cause for debate earlier, we now have scientific proof. In fact, it even has a scientific term, making it all horribly real. 

Male menopause, viropause or andropause if you prefer the scientific terminology, is a condition that occurs in men between the ages of 40 and 55. It essentially comprises of chemical and hormonal changes in men, and yes, it does affect their sexuality. There are always exceptions and some men may not experience male menopause until they're in their late sixties, while other may experience it in their thirties! Scary, isn't it?

Now it's time for some good news. While men feel that this signifies the beginning of the end, nothing could be further from the truth. Male menopause in fact could very well be the beginning of the beginning! 

Think about it. The initial years of a man's life are filled with struggle as he strives to achieve his goals and career aspirations. As he grows older and has realized some of his dreams, he feels more or less settled in life. He's been there, seen it all, and done it all. So now what? Now men are faced with what is called a mid-life crisis. 

Some of the symptoms include: 

Their wives either don't want to have sex as often as they did, or they stop finding their wives as attractive as they used to. 

  • They lose some of their hair, and start perceiving themselves as less attractive. 
  • While they still carry on with a particular sport, they notice a deterioration in their game. 
  • Their sex drives fall, and their erections are not as frequent, nor do they last as long. 
  • Where's all that energy gone? Suddenly they start dropping off to sleep immediately after dinner. 
  • They've got that tyre of spare flesh around their belly. 
  • Realization dawns. They are now, finally and irreversibly, grown-up and 'mature'. Ugh! 
So what does the 'mature' man do? He starts looking outside for attention. He may even have the occasional extra-marital affair. A new haircut, a sudden renewed interest in the gym, a new wardrobe, and perhaps, a new sports car. Red, of course. 

Is there any treatment for this? 

Fear not guys, help is at hand. While there are no treatments since male menopause is not an illness - it's just a state of mind, there are, however, certain tips to help you cope. So take a print out and save this page - you never know when you'll need it. And if you start following the advice right now, who knows, you just might skip male menopause totally! 
 

  1. Sex is not a personal challenge. Don't get pressurized into performing. Just enjoy it for what it is, and for however far you can go. It's okay if you don't hit the spot every time. 
  2. Do you have a hobby? Cultivate one. It will help bring inner peace when you most need it. 
  3. Ease out of the rat race. Sit back and enjoy the spoils of your toil. 
  4. Take up meditation. It's time to do some serious soul searching. 
  5. Don't think that every man out there is your competitor. Think of them as friends. 
  6. Do your neighbours know you? Get to know them, and with it, gain their respect. Do something good for community welfare. 
  7. Go for an early morning brisk walk everyday, and keep up this practice for the rest of your life. 
  8. Money no object? Go on a cruise with your wife and kids or other couples. 
  9. Don't just sit around waiting for your kids to settle down, your house to get sold, grandchildren to get born - Enjoy the present. The best time is NOW! 
  10. Adopt a healthy attitude towards old age and look forward to living life well into your 80s, 90s and beyond!
While the above are lifestyle changes and may take some time, here's what you can do immediately to help you cope. 
  • Turn vegetarian. Meat, especially red meat, is no longer good for you once you've reached a certain age. 
  • Drink at least 10 glasses of water every day. 
  • Limit your alcohol consumption.
  • Drink less caffeine.
  • Get at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep. 
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Find a chess partner to play chess with regularly. It keeps the mind sharp.

Yes! My sex life is back!!! I have received the order and I am extremely pleased with the service and the pills. I had previously been paying a very high price through prescriptions from my local GP. I am now able to order online without hassle and delivery has been within the stated period. I was a bit wary of ordering from an online pharmacy, especially overseas....but I came to be extremely happy with the service and the product. I will absolutely place any and all future orders through this site http://canadianrx-drugs.com/?ref_id=3915
