Re: I can't believe this

Although it's true that the liver breaks down estrogen, I don't think that this would cause anxiety. In fact: "If the female hormone estrogen is not broken down efficiently, this can lead to excessive levels of estrogen in the body. Excess estrogen can cause breast pain and lumpiness, heavy painful menstrual bleeding and weight gain around the hips, buttocks and thighs."

Also, I have never heard that getting rid of menopausal symptoms prolongs life. Menopause is not a disease. It is a natural process that is different for every woman.
