From the article in Sun on Sunday:
SEX life? What sex life?
When men hit their forties, they often feel exhausted, irritable and are the butt of grumpy old man jokes.
They are always tired, suffer broken sleep and even night sweats or a bulging waistline.
Most men simply put it down to ageing but The Sun on Sun- day’s resident GP, Dr Jeff Foster, says it could well be the mano- pause — a serious medical issue where testosterone levels drop.
Dr Jeff said: “It is comparable to but more subtle than meno- pause, where oestrogen levels drop suddenly. Once men hit 30, they naturally lose around one per cent of their testosterone every year. It’s very gradual.
“It happens to everyone, though it may occur at different ages. You slowly grind down to become a grumpy, fat old man who doesn’t want as much sex as when they were 20.
“Society tells men what is happening to them is normal for their age, but it’s not normal. It’s a medical problem and there is something you can do about it.”
Here, Dr Jeff reveals all you need to know if you or your partner are going through the manopause . . .
