Karla B: Where did you hear that Premarin makes endometriosis worse? Why doesn't vegetable estrogen like soy act the same? I am still confused as to whether you can still have endometriosis after natural menopause.

And, for those of you who live near a Trader Joe's (West Coast, Northeast, now in the D.C. area -, they have a really good chocolate soy drink at $1.49/litre. It's helping me get 6 hours of sleep/night for the first time in almost 5 years.

Menopause as an alternative lifestyle....Brookstone has a really handy hand-held fan, and it's really hard to find 100% cotton slips... karen
