u.s.a.
hey as the interview with Dr Singh reiterates, it appears estrogen may have something to do with activating (is that the right word?) xmrv.

my question is, does that mean a female should never take estrogen, who already has cfs? or if you already have it does it not matter anymore? just curious from the menopause treatment angle. a dilemma...wondering if any older cfs females have been able to find a low dose of estrogen that doesnt make things worse and helps some....

Hi Xray, we are actually talking about this on another thread called "My test came back and it said I have ZERO testosterone."
