man expressing irritationIf you have been experiencing mood swings, transitioning from calm to angry, hostile, depressed, or frustrated in the blink of an eye, you could be dealing with IMS. IMS is a condition in men that causes severe hormonal mood swings, usually a symptom of prolonged high-stress situations.

What is IMS?

IMS stands for Irritable Male Syndrome. If you are experiencing IMS, some of the emotions you may experience include:

  • Anger/Hostility
  • Impatience/Irritability
  • Depression/Anxiety

You may also notice that you are more argumentative, feel withdrawn or distant, and find yourself increasingly dissatisfied with your life.

What Causes IMS?

IMS is caused by severe hormonal imbalances, particularly a decrease in testosterone levels. If your body is not producing enough testosterone it can cause a whole host of issues in your overall health, including your mental health.
