There is: no "DIRECT" connection between thyroid gland output and t-4/t3 ratios and "female hormones" except that the BINDING of the hormone itself is altered by female hormone levels...This does not generally effect the end point of Thyroid Hormone effects (on growth, muscles and other tissues) Hope this helps! Perhaps a more specific question can generate a better answer! Dr Z
