Portal Vein: Portal vein thrombosis wont go away on its own, but may recanalize on blood thinners. Best not to smoke with a history of PVT while on hormones. Often there is more than one associated clotting risk factor. Hematologist can direct anticoagulation duration. Vascular surgery input is advised. GI or vascular should follow you as varices (veins in esophagus) or ascites (belly fluid) can develop.

No: Although you are correct, men have estrogen and women have testosterone as well. Hormone levels do not seem to affect orgasmic intensity.
