Hi bsjaguar and Welcome-
I have had fibro a little over a year now, but started menopause in my early 40's. I will be 53 this month. Fought it for 4 yrs and then could not take all the hot flashes I had in one day and started on HRT. I am on the lowest dose of estrogen you can take. I was on a higher dose until it came out that you shouldn't be on HRT any longer than 5 yrs.
That is an interesting question though and reading all the replies-
Nice to meet you and you have come to a great place!
