Say What? Man With "Manopause" Blames Hormones

Say What? Man With "Manopause" Blames Hormones

"So, with the help of Lupron, I spent a few months aboard the Good Ship Menopause with all the physical baggage that entails. It’s a trip that most men don’t expect to take . . .

And, guys, when your significant female other bursts into tears at the drop of a dinner plate or turns on you like a rabid pit bull — whether she’s pregnant, having her period or in the throes of menopause — believe her when she blames it on the hormones."

— Dana Jennings, in a New York Times piece about how being on hormone therapy for an aggressive case of prostate cancer gave him menopause-like symptoms including hot flashes, unexpected crying jags, intense food cravings, and weight gain.

I'm with you verily... I fought with Lupron years ago, too and it made me good and crazy for months. I can't imagine what it was like for a man be stuck on it. What in the world were you taking to combat the side effects? They put me on Premarin but that was it... I'm interested!

Poor guy. I've sailed the good ship Lupron and it freakin sucks. And I had the luxury of taking a pill to combat the side effects. At least he'll be far far more understanding about what his wife is going through.

Well there actually is a male form of menopause, so maybe there are some other men who may want to step up and say something!
