The only thing I can say is that what I've read from hormones and any autoimmune disease is that they can make it go to an extreme either way. Kind of like when a women gets pregnant and her Crohn's gets better or, in my case, considerably worse.
It would be worth researching. I know I sound like a broken record recommending it so much, but I would at least consider reading Donna Nakazawa's 'Autoimmune Epidemic.' It discusses a wide range of triggers for diseases and their following years of flares. Hormones was topic she touched upon with various doctors from Johns Hopkins University.
