So that’s why my symptoms have been getting worse lately.

As someone who’s never been pregnant, I’m one of the “lucky” ones whom Mother Nature has decided can start having the “fun” of peri-menopause many years before most women do. And I’ve been having that “fun” for the past couple of years.

UBC has an excellent facility devoted to the study of women’s reproductive health (http://www.cemcor.ubc.ca ), and they’ve found that estrogen replacement is the more dangerous form of hormone replacement therapy. Progesterone replacement seems to deal with many of the menopausal and peri-menopausal problems, and carries a much lower risk of causing cancer. I don’t know what its effect on dopamine is, though.
