As a 56-year-old male in fine condition with the exception of my arrhythmias, I often wonder what causes the episodes of atrial flutter and fibrillation to become more frequent and longer across the 30 years or so I have been aware of them. It occurred to my menopausing wife that my increasing symptoms may be a reflection of hormonal changes over the years. She goes on to suggest that I might look for hormonal therapies. Is this worth pursuing?
