Older Guys Starting TRT and their Wives


#1

I was explaining things to a 51YO guy [in real life] about TRT basics and benefits. Then I explained that his libido could be very high for a while and asked how old his wife was? He explained around the same age and fully menopausal. I explained that this could become a real problem and I don't think that he grasped the implications.

In my case, my wife is 19 years younger. So I have not had any problems.

I can see how a marriage could become very stressed when a guy cannot get his sexual needs satisfied or stressed when the act creates resentment.

19 Years Younger! You ol’ dog you! Props to KSman!

No doubt though, This can and has ended marriages.

Not a problem. I’m 72. Wife is 70. Before TRT we had sex one to 2 times/week. Same now. Only difference is that I enjoy it more now. Wife likes frequency. If we go longer than a week without sex, wife gets annoyed.

This issue is not exclusive to the older guys. Unless 37 is older.

I fully support hormone replacement for women. I’ve heard from women that have had amazing results. If she’s willing, they could both benefit.
