The therapist that discovered so-called Male Menopause now says there's another affliction striking men everywhere: Irritable Male Syndrome. Does your guy have it?

man screaming

The next time your man tells you you've got PMS, tell him HE'S got IMS ... Irritable Male Syndrome!

Yes, this is a real disorder, discovered by psychotherapist Jed Diamond, the same doc who wrote the book on Male Menopause. (Apparently, that exists as well. Who knew?)

Common symptoms of Irritable Male Syndrome:

• hypersensitivity
• anxiety
• frustration
• anger
• stress
• loss of male identity
• depression
• irritability
• mood swings

We don't know about you, but our guys suffer from all of the above!

Dr. Diamond says if your man is experiencing any of these symptoms, he should see his family doctor or psychotherapist. One of the most common causes of IMS is a low testosterone level, which is easily treatable.

Does your man suffer from Irritable Male Syndrome?

I swear my husband has this.
Whenever I bring up a topic, he thinks I’m criticizing him. We can’t just have a conversation any more. It never used to be like this! What’s happening? IMS is the answer!
