male...er....menopause? (very personal)

Anyone's DH suffering a mid-life loss of libido and have they tried anything herbal that helped? Mine wouldn't dream of exposing his "problem" to a doctor or taking any pharmaceuticals, but I have had a lot of relief of my middle aged symptoms using black cohosh and wanted to know if anyone's dearly beloved had had success with anything OTC. He also doesn't have any health insurance, so we're looking for low-tech (and unthreatening to the ego).

Thanks if you reply, I know it's personal.

Hi turtlelady,
I'm sorry I don't have any suggestions for herbal things, but I just wanted to make sure it might not be a result of one of his medications? Is he on anything that could be doing this?

No meds, no underlying medical problems, good blood pressure. Someone had told me once that he tried "herbal viagra" and had good luck with it. I just don't have a clue what herbs to consider. Aging is no fun for anyone, is it?

No prostate problems? That should be checked whether he's nervous or not.... silly man!

Good suggestion, heathen. I am trying to get him on my insurance at work, but it won't happen until August. Open enrollment, give me a break.

Yeah, when you do get him on insurance... also, he can have his testosterone levels checked.. there is patches and pills if it's low. They need their poor testosterone. :o) Beware of what you ask for, if he gets over his manly fears and gets it fixed.... are you ready for it? :D

Lol heathen! Yes, be careful what you wish for turtlelady! (I hope you're laughing with us!)

Yes, I am - would only be laughing more if he got his groove back! Thanks for suggestions, but all must wait until Aug.

I do believe men go through mid life crash. Does anyone else's husband seem grouchy at 50?

The herbal licorice is a libido enhancer. Years ago I had a girlfriend whose husband took it with great success. He was young but had a naturally low libido. Works like a charm

Be careful, licorice is dangerous to people with high blood pressure!!!
