Men could hardly accept it that andropause is striking them. They face their greatest fear thus denying that apparent symptoms of andropause in them are not happening. How can anyone accept the fact that they are losing their energy, sex drive and physical agility? Moreover, they would also deny that IMS (Irritable Male Syndrome) is attacking them. It is the condition wherein sudden mood swings occurs from once being lovable, contented, and peaceful to becoming mean, discontented, and agitated. In this book, men are taught how to overcome their fear and denial stage.
Male menopause has different factors to deal with. Men can never successfully pass this stage without proper knowledge of how to get through it. As some mostly believe that it is the end of men’s sexual power. But if they would follow the right direction then it is worth in the end conquering defeating consequences. Remember, that looking ahead with a good disposition can help. Male menopause is only a passage to a more passionate, purposeful, and productive time in men’s life.
