What does it mean if I am a female, have normal estrogen, testosterone & TSH, but low sex hormone binding globulin?

What does it mean if I am a female, have normal estrogen, testosterone & TSH, but low sex hormone binding globulin?

Nothing - u r normal: Regardless of gender, if your estrogen, testosterone & TSH are normal, then you're normal. Sex hormone binding globulin is used to bind up sex hormones, exactly what it says. Sometimes we check both total hormone as well as free hormone, since it's typically free hormone that accounts for benefit claimed by hormone. But rather than look at numbers, consider how you feel. We treat patients, not #s. ...Read more

If a female is wearing underwear, can she become pregnant by grinding on her male partner who is wearing underwear and shorts and ejaculates?

So if a man and a women have chlymidia w. Out knowing & have sex 6 days before ovulation can she still become pregnant?

So if a man and a women have chlymidia w. Out knowing & have sex 6 days before ovulation can she still become pregnant?

Chlamydia and pregna: Quick answer, no. Chlamydia can be a cause of infertility for men and women. However, sperm could not survive 6 days in the vagina or cervix. If intercourse really occurred six days prior to ovulation, the sperm will not be able to penetrate your cervical mucus to get inside the uterus. Sperm will live 48 hours in the cervical mucus. At ovulation the mucus changes to let the sperm swim through it. ...Read more

Having sex during that period you will not ovulate thus not get pregnant. After, one week without the ring, insert a new one on the same day of the week that the previous one was inserted in your last. ...Read more
