Manopause. Menoporsche. Midlife crisis.
Whatever people call it, the male menopause (andropause) is oh so real. More than 790,000 men in the UK feel it.
They feel tired and irritable. Lack motivation and enthusiasm. Got the grumps, have poor concentration and trouble sleeping. Build up unwanted fat. Lose their sex drive and endure erectile problems.
And guess what? Most do nothing about it. Even if they do, many doctors rarely investigate these symptoms properly. Or consider them problematic.
But it exists. Ask long-suffering partners of ‘older’ men who sulk off into their man sheds for some ‘me time’.
