It is important to note that you may also be experiencing hormonal changes of your own. While it doesn’t get a lot of attention, we know that men have their fair share of mid-life challenges, including mental health struggles.
Females experience menopause at different ages, with some having very few symptoms, while others have many. That can leave some females in same-sex relationships struggling to understand their partner’s menopause experience. Being open and recognizing that you too may be going through mid-life changes could provide an opportunity to grow closer with your partner, and to provide each other with greater support.
