Is it about male menopause, or about male pms or what? Most of what I've read is in the ballpark but not quite to the point.
Listless, lethargic, depressed.....but not all the time. Just 'periods'. Not monthly like a woman, but just as real. Can be out of it tomorrow. Have all sorts of ambitions, but can't get off my ass.
Mid-life thing? I have no desire for a "younger woman" or a new fancy sports car.
Just 'periods' of an intense case of "lack-a-wanna".
I could go on for hours. Anyone else out there understand this???????

In my class at school my instructor describes this as male menopause. Men lose testerone levels just like women lose estrogen levels.

Thanks gypsygirl,
What I have read about male menopause leads me to believe that this is an ongoing thing that you feel every day. I don't. It's just 'periodic' (which is where I got the thought that this is like a woman's 'period')lasting for a couple days then I'm back to ?normal?. It comes and goes.
I don't think it has much to do with testosterone levels. I began losing my hair in high school. (From what I've read, the latest research shows an excess level of testosterone is the culprit behind male pattern baldness). There is nothing wrong with my sex drive, I'm 51 and I'm still chasing my wife around the house. I love my wife dearly and have no desire at all to seek conquests outside of our relationship. But... there are "periods" of where nothing seems to matter. I have things to do and have no desire to do them. Just today, I met my wife for lunch (she had to work today) and she said something about football on TV. I told her I had no desire to watch football today and she immediately knew something was wrong. I have been in the dumps for two days now and have no desire to watch football.
Uh-Oh!!!
Actually, I've had no desire to do anything. Tomorrow, that may all change.
Tomorrow I will be all full of piss & vinegar again. So like I said in my original thread, It's a passing "Periodical" thing. Do men have periods like women do??? I would not at all mind if you pose my thread to your instructor. (Maybe you can do a paper on it)!!!
It was nice of you to respond to me and I do appreciate it. I hope to read from you again.
Thanks,
TomH

I'm not an expert, but my first question would be how long has this been going on? A few months? Years?
It could just be your energy cycles, which may or may not be related to hormone levels. Just a thought. My ex had ongoing cycles similar to that, but he didn't have male pattern baldness, so I am not sure hair loss has anything to do with it.

It could be just your cycle. Those things change all the time and depression can be a cyclical thing. I'm not saying that you are clinically depressed, but we all fall somewhere in the continuum and it is something that can change. For me it generally works with nature and I feel a really bad depression about 1 day per month. I don't take meds or anything, just St. John's Wort occasionally. That's usually enough to get me through it. I've always wondered if men have PMS anyway (smile).
Have there been any changes in your life, health or diet that may contribute to this occasional "PMS" feeling? Just thought I'd ask.

Maybe it is just the phases of the moon. My depression cycle is on a weekely schedule. The weekends are severley bad for me. then around tuesday or so I am just as happy as can be then around comes the weekend and I want to crawl underneath my blanket and hide from the world. It could be a multitude of different things working together. If it is increasingly interfearing with your daily life than you should seek treatment.

Oh yeah remember that not everyone has text book symptoms. For some people it could be an ongoing thing and for you it could be only spratic. Do you take vitamins? Vitamin E is very good.
