A new resource to share this helpful guide to better “understand male menopause conditions and their effects on men’s mental health”

Male menopause can be a difficult time for older men, with symptoms beginning to affect their well-being, and it can even have a bigger impact on mental health.

You can see the full version of our guide below:

Understanding the Male Menopause and Mental Health
https://www.optimale.co.uk/trt/trt-manual/male-menopause-mental-health-guide/

It covers important topics such as:

  • Understanding “male menopause” – separating facts from fiction, and why it can be misleading (and harmful) to group the different changes and conditions affecting men as they age under this label.
  • The physical and emotional changes associated with male menopause and why men should always seek a proper medical diagnosis for said symptoms.
  • The effect on men’s mental wellbeing – from memory loss and lowered libido to secondary effects like fatigue, insomnia, and irrationality – and their impact on daily life.
  • Helpful tips and advice for managing symptoms, lifestyle changes and treatments that can help, and other useful information.
