    There is actually quite a bit of research on this. For a long time, doctors thought that menopause would case flares to die down, but after several medical studies, they found the contrary to be true: more than 70% of women with HS saw an increase in number and intensity of flarez during menopause. Because nobody *really* understands the etiology of HS, they're basically throwing darts, blindfolded, and hiping to hit the board. I always do the "trial and error" process, when in doubt.
