Question:Irritable Male Syndrome?

Is there such a thing or is it a joke or a typo?

Answer:

I totally agree. Men do have IMS! Every male I have ever known..including my sons..experience irritability (like woman) a couple times a month. Too much testosterone? Who knows. Afterall, some men have more female characteristics(more of our chromosone) and thereby should have our mood swings as well. Fair is fair. Too bad they can't birth children as well. lol

I'd tell you but I'm afraid I'd tick my husband off.:-)

Answer:

There is a book about this and a web site (Link). Apparently, even men can fall prey to hormone swings. And I believe it: I have joked that I think my husband gets his period because there are definitely certain times of the month where he is "in a mood."
