If you are feeling on edge, irritable, moody, perhaps like you're going crazy, and having menopausal symptoms, talk to your doctor. Estrogen is stored in fat. Sooooo, as your fat melts away, your estrogen hitches a ride with it and you end up shortchanged! I didn't know that! At least I know I'm not really crazzzzzy!!!!!! emoticon

    I just started using bio identical estrogen from the health food store. It a cream and just a dab does the trick for me. It's just another alternative.

    You can also have what seems to be a light menses. I did not know that estrogen was stored in fat cells also. It was scary since I was 66 at the time.
