Are You Suffering From Male Menopause?

The Natural Solution for Improved Sexual Performance
Almost all men experience occasional difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection at some point in their lives. This can put a serious cramp in their sex lives, not to mention the adverse impact on libido and self esteem. Between 12 and 30 million men in the United States are affected by sexual performance problems according to recent estimates. About 52% of men between the ages of 30 and 70 currently have some degree of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). In the past libido and erection problems were thought to be nonexistent or "all in a man's mind". Men were often given useless advice such as: "don't worry" or "just relax". Society and the medical community have made great strides in recognizing the prevalence of ED and the identification of ED in those experiencing it. Today we understand that physical factors are often the cause when someone is experiencing persistent Erectile Dysfunction. In fact, the cause of ED is physical in nature, not psychological, for approximately 90% of those experiencing it.
Between the ages of 30 and 55, men may experience a phenomenon similar to female menopause called andropause, or Male Menopause. Unlike women, men do not have a clear signal to mark the transition into Male Menopause, such as the cessation of menstruation. Despite the lack of similarity in recognizable onset between female and Male Menopause, Female Menopause and Male Menopause are both characterized by a marked drop in hormone levels - estrogen in women and testosterone in men.
The onset of Male Menopause usually occurs gradually and many times may be accompanied by changes in attitude and mood, as well as sex drive and physical agility. Other potential signs of Male Menopause include the following:
Loss of interest in sex;
Decreased sexual performance;
Weakened or absence of erections;
Lack of energy;
Weight gain; and
Decreased strength and/or endurance.
Are you experiencing any of the mentioned symptoms - most notably a loss of libido? Are you having difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection? Has your sexual relationship with your partner been suffering? Could you be suffering from Male Menopause? Is Their A Natural Solution?

The impact of decreasing testosterone levels can be a difficult thing to accept for most men despite it's being a normal part of the aging process.
