Teeple's Top 10 Relationship
01 WOMEN. Are usually the first ones to notice the signs and symptoms of Low T, but due to the lack of awareness - there are few answers to her questions.
02 CHANGES. Ladies, have you noticed your husband/partner has withdrawn? Is he avoiding interactions with friends and family? Does his mood seem to be more stoic and irritable? Has he lost motivation in the workplace? Do you feel like sex has fallen off his "to do" list?
03 PERSONALLY. Ladies, do you wonder to yourself: Is it me? Am I not attractive to him? Is he having an affair? You are not alone in feeling this way. Many women feel rejected and confused by changes they notice in the man in their life.
04 MEN. Don't like to go to the doctor. Don't like something being "wrong" with them. Do not care for "20 questions" and can see them as insulting and attacking.
05 APPROACH. This is key. Don't box him into a corner. Be respectful, patient and honest in your approach. Remind him you are on the same team and your questions about his symptoms are because you care deeply about him and his health. Do not make threats, and don't make it about you - just focus on getting educated together.
06 DO YOUR RESEARCH. Take our Teeple's Testosterone Test to learn the risk of Low T for your partner, or he can take the test for the men. Find a good health care provider that is informed about Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Email us and we will help you find a qualified provider.
07 BE PATIENT. Most men on Testosterone Replacement Therapy see improvement in their symptoms within 3 months. Help him remember to stick with the routine.
08 TEAMWORK. Let him know you are on his team. Two are stronger than one, so be in it together! Be his cheerleader!
09 BE POSITIVE. Who wants to be around a negative person? Encourage in an uplifting and helpful way that doesn't turn into boot camp. Leave notes where each other can find them during the day or send a text with something loving and positive (or even better....sexy!)
10 LIVE BY EXAMPLE. You've heard the old saying, "you can take a horse to water, but you can't make him drink." In this case, I think the best way to encourage growth and change in others is for them to learn by example. Take care of your body, soul and mind. Be purposeful about it and live a life that is honorable and balanced.
