Something tells me that's a BIG yes. I'm Beef's age - almost 42 and my gyno is obsessed with my hormone levels now, which I'm sure you'll all be happy to know, are FINE. Drs are interested in protecting your uterus, ovaries and breasts from cancer and keeping your heart healthy, not LOOKS, but hormone replacement does have the added benefit of keeping women looking young - or at least younger than they would look without them. They also HELP control middle-aged spread and weight gain. How will Wiggy reconcile his obsession with keeping Beef looking like a fetus and anorexic with his stance that all hormone replacement is bad? By the way, for the men, birth control pills and bio identical hormones are different things, but it's the same in the sense that you are putting hormones into your body that weren't there and altering your chemistry artificially. And according to Wiggy, that's dangerous. Beef has been fighting the testosterone war from the time he/she was a very young hermaphrodite, it's only going to get worse. Beef and Wiggy 5 yrs from now if Beef doesn't get on the hormones. Except you know, Wiggy will be MUCH thinner than that.
