Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy E4 Women

About 2 years ago I didn't know I was technically in menopause (base on FSH levels), I went to my ob/gyn and said, I think I am very sick.

To answer your question, I ordered kits for my mom, my sister, and my sister's daughter so as to be able to compare DNA results.
