Also, I've heard that the whole reason men progress faster than women in Hep C is because they don't have the estrogen
as a protective factor. My theory is that if I stop my estrogen and
go through menopause instantaneously that my fibrosis will progress even faster than it already has been. As I said above, I have had the hysterectomy and I have no ovaries, uterus, cervix, tubes, etc., etc., so stopping my HRT will mean INSTANT menopause.
