Synthetic hormone used in contraceptives and HRT produces negative effects in monkey studies

Findings may explain mood and behavior changes in women
My comment - this research was only on one synthetic progestin (medroxyprogesterone) which is certainly compelling, but I would love to see the research duplicated using the other synthetic progestins (norgesterol, levo-norgesterol, gestodene, desogestrol, norethindrone, drospirenone) which are actually the ones used in the oral contraceptive pills. Medroxyprogesterone is used primarily in hormone replacement therapy, and is the only hormone in Depo-Provera shots. No wonder we have so many women on antidepressant therapy.
