> I have a lot of the same symptoms, so if you ever find out what it is, post the answer! But, I was wondering, what kind of estrogen have you taken? Estrace and some (perhaps all) of the patches are pure estradiol, not the "horse urine" kind that a lot of women react to.

Hi - I've tried 3 kinds - initially Premarin (in the PremPro combo pill), then Tri-Est (compounding pharmacy supplied triple estrogen - mix of estradiol-estriol-estrone), then starting last summer - Estrace .5 mg and have weaned down to .25 mg.

> I've found that I can tolerate Micronor as a progesterone replacement better than natural progesterone.

Can you tell me more about Micronor? After the Provera (in the Prempro combo pill) I tried Natural Micronized Progesterone, also supplied by a compounding pharmacy. When you say you tolerated Micronor better, what kind of reaction did you have to natural progesterone, was it the "micronized" prescription form, and had you at any time tried Provera medroxy-progesterone acetate?

Thanks much for your reply.
