THE AFTER EFFECTS OF MY WONDERING IS...

HELLO WORLD, Do you have the following:

Decreased energy
Decreased mental quickness
Decreased desire for physical activity
Decreased muscle tone
Increase in body fat, particularly around the mid-section
Night sweats and trouble sleeping
Mild to moderate irritability
Depression, or loss of eagerness and enthusiasm for daily life
Decreased desire for intimacy

Those are symptoms of Andropause, Male Menopause - Low Male Hormone Levels

And I THOUGHT… women were the only ones suffering from menopause!!
(you may have known this… I just found out)

There is treatment for Andropause Testosterone Replacement
Testosterone replacement therapy is the primary means of treating men.

Click here for more information http://health.discovery.com/centers/mens/articles/andropause_02.html

Male hormonal contraceptives (yep… Male contraceptives…)
Ladies you’re probably thinking… YAY!! Now what is it?
Once again I was online reading and I came across the following

“Researchers are coming closer to a marketable male hormonal contraceptive (MHC) delivered by injection or implant, but there is nothing commercially available right now.”

yep - Nothing right now ladies… SORRY or NOT IN THE US IS WHAT I SHOULD SAY

“Male hormonal contraceptives attempt to block or severely reduce the production of sperm. They accomplish this by stopping the secretion of a man's reproductive hormones in the brain and testes. When levels of testosterone in the testes are low, sperm production slows or halts.”
“Men taking MHCs in clinical trials experience a range of side effects, including lean muscle weight gain, increased acne and changes in mood. These side effects are caused by the synthetic androgen in the MHC regimen.”
Read here for more information - http://malecontraceptives.org/methods/hormonal.php

What I did find crazy were that men get the same side effects... women get from certain contraceptives – do we really want this ladies?? LOL!!!

There is survey on the link mentioned below titled, Prove that there is demand for new male contraceptives go ahead and click on

Breast Cancer in Men
Listed are the estimates for Male Breast Cancer in 2009 according to American Cancer Society (http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_1X_What_are_the_key_statistics_for_male_breast_cancer_28.asp)
“About 1,910 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among men and about 440 men will die from breast cancer”
"Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years."
What Is Breast Cancer in Men? Check out this link http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_1X_What_is_male_breast_cancer_28.asp
I also read the story of Scott Cunningham, 45 from Marion NC regarding breast cancer
(click here for the entire story http://www.emaxhealth.com/1506/men-high-risk-breast-cancer-need-better-screening-tools.html)
Here is section of what I read , ” Scott Cunningham, 45 from Marion NC, is at a very high risk for developing Male Breast Cancer. Both of his parents had the disease in the 1990’s. Recently, he developed the same symptoms as his father, including a swollen chest with knots underneath the nipple and feelings of fatigue, but because he was uninsured, he put off receiving help. When he finally sought medical guidance, he was turned away – because he was a man.“I didn’t know what to do at first,” Cunningham told ABC News. “I was stunned and confused. Breast cancer used to be just a woman’s cancer, but now it’s well known men are susceptible.”

All of this information has made me think… and I hope it opened your eyes as well
Speaking of eyes… Both Males and Females like stunnas, shades, sunglasses right….

Here are some really different sunglasses I saw online… and I was wondering.. who could actually wear these and look normal?
I'll tell you my guess if you tell me yours (leave a comment… or message me)
Could actually rock this glasses?? Inquiring minds would love to know

APRIL 1ST - ITS SPRING TIME

It’s Spring! It’s April! The sun is coming out every now and again… Blue skies…
My type of atmosphere! Spring time always puts a lil pep in my step. Something about the sunlight I think. Time to shed the winter cover ups and time to reveal a lil more skin lol!
(don’t forget your sun block folks)
Who can step into spring without stepping into spring with new spring time shoes!!
Not sure if all of you know… I have a shoe habit (due to the economy I have really slowed down). I love shoes!! I have more shoes then clothes (yep… that’s not good… I totally agree with you)
I hear that Spring 2010 Shoe Trend is pretty much every shoe we ever had LOL!
