Finally someone else thinks that hormones and
clusters have some sort of a connection.

Progesterone, estrogen and androgens are
produced in the adrenal cortex. Too little
progesterone causes miscarriages-I had four.
When I became pregnant, and before I even
knew it, I would have a 6 week episode. This
happened with 7 pregnancies, 3 of which were
successful. With the 3, I received hormone
suppliments which kept my progesterone at a
level that would maintain the pregnancy.

The clusters continued on a twice-per-year
basis until my hysterectomy in 1985.

Since males also produce minute amounts of
some female sex hormones ( and visa-versa),
why could a male not be producing more or less
than tolerable?
