Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) February 03, 2013
Moodiness, fatigue, weight gain, depression… these are some of the symptoms a woman – and a man – experience during menopause. Mary Washington Healthcare (MWHC) is raising awareness on male menopause or ‘manopause,’ the age-related hormone change in men, in a seminar called Managing Manopause.
Facilitated by Dr. Michael Smith, OB/GYN, this seminar designed for men and women will help couples understand and cope with the relationship changes that menopause/manopause can bring.
WHAT: Managing Manopause – Couples Seminar
WHEN February 26, 2012 - 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: John F. Fick Conference Center
MWHC Medical Campus
“I hear from couples all too often that are on the brink of divorce as they enter into menopause and/or menopause,” says Michael Smith, OB/GYN. “Getting men and women to understand and expect some of the challenges of menopause, could really save some relationships.”
There are 25 million men who are affected by the natural decrease in testosterone, also known as androgen or Low T. Unlike the ending of hormone production during menopause, a man’s testosterone decline is a more gradual process that occurs over a period of several years.
Managing Manopause is developed by Spirit of Women and locally presented by Mary Washington Healthcare.
