I’m no medical expert and I don’t consider myself to be a blogger either but I wanted to try and put links to a mix of lived experiences and medical facts that I’d come across in the hope that it might prove useful to someone.

I’m happy for you to send me any lived experiences that you think may be useful to someone else.

The 'male menopause'. (Source NHS)

Some men develop depression, loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and other physical and emotional symptoms when they reach their late 40s to early 50s.
