Who We Are

Menopause is a completely normal transition; the life stage brings with it plenty of obvious physical symptoms. That’s why we encourage menopause talks to sensitize the community about such challenges and how to manage them.

Mid-Life Crisis in Men.

What is Mid Life Crisis

A Mid-Life Crisis can also be known as Male Menopause or Andropause, which is defined as a period of life, usually between the ages of 40 and 60, when a man begins to question their accomplishments or achievements in their lives.

Mid-Life Symptoms

Men experience real and sometimes debilitating physical and mental midlife symptoms, although they may not always report these to their healthcare provider immediately.

Support Your Partner

Even if you’re sure your partner is having a midlife crisis, don’t label it. That’s not your job and it generally puts people on the defensive when we label them, so it’s not particularly helpful.

Treatment and Therapies

When experiencing symptoms that could be caused by male menopause, see your healthcare worker. You will get tested for hormone levels, and you can discuss your work and personal life to see if your symptoms may be caused by problems such as anxiety or excess weight.
