" I can't really say as I had a complete hysterectomy in 2004 and was only diagnosed 2 years later. I do remember when my daughter was pregnant, she asked her OB if she thought the sjogrens was hereditary and if she needed to be tested for it (in case it would make her pregnancy harder). The doctor told her that hormone level changes during pregnancy tend to decrease autoimmune disorder symptoms. So I definately think that hormone levels make a difference. "

" I have the same thing. Since it seems to hit women hard after 40 I'm thinking too that the hormones whack everything out of joint. Way to make PMS even more fun, eh girls? "
