Cardiac issues

I have a family history of atrial fib. My mother and grandmother had it as well a few female cousins. None of us had symptoms until after we start menopause. My mother's was very disturbing. My symptoms are not as bad but it is getting worse. I have been under a cardiologist care since 2007 when I was hospitalized after a particularly bad a fib event. In researching a fib after that event, I learned it may be connected to menopause. Neither of the cardiologists have talked to me about this. I was wondering about the estrogen treatment you mentioned. Could this be helpful to me?
