Todd- I have posted on this subject several times, the last being just a day or two ago. I also know a few people must be getting tired of my theory, but as the risk of being repetative, here it is-----

I am convinced that this hormone is my culprit.
I have had 7 pregnancies-three living children.
Testosterone imbalance in women causes premature birth and miscarriage. At the onset of
each preg., I had an extra episode of CH. Also,
when weaning the baby, again when the level of testosterone changes, more CH's. Finally, in 1986, after having a hysterectomy, and ovaries removed, the CH's stopped completely and I haven't had one since.

The Dr. put me on an estrogin therapy program without Progesterone as he thought it might cause headaches, with my past history. Also, in normal menopause, the females minute amount of testosterone is again lowered.
