Which synthetic estrogen is safest, Estradiol Valerate, Mestranol, or Ethinyl Estradiol?

Synthetic meds: 1st no such thing as free lunch ie there's always some potential risk or side effect. 2nd FDA only approves meds which they deem benefit greater than risk (tho obviously not w/o disagreement & controversy). 3rd no studies demonstrate benefit of any oral estrogen over another tho some studies suggest topical safe than oral. 4th Natural isn't safe than synthetic ie tobacco is natural but isn't safe! ...Read more

Does exercise affect estradiol + estrone: progesterone ratio?

Does exercise affect estradiol + estrone: progesterone ratio?

Yes: Any of these hormones can be affected by exercise. What matters most is the amount of fat you have in your body, because fat stores estrogen, which can affect the signaling for ovulation in your body, which can really affect the amount of progesterone that would be found on a blood test. ...Read more

How ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) pills works?

How ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) pills works?

Prevent egg release: Ovral (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) and all birth control pills contain hormones that prevent ovulation (release of egg by your ovary). They also cause the mucous in your cervix (the opening to uterus or womb) thicker which make it hard for sperm to enter. It thins the lining of the uterus which makes it an unpleasant environment for a fertilized egg. ...Read more

Why does watson testosterone cypionate mfg not work as good as Depo-Provera testosterone cypionate?

Why does watson testosterone cypionate mfg not work as good as Depo-Provera testosterone cypionate?

USA model?: Manufactured in usa by upjohn and watson. If not a counterfeited product, i would think both should work about the same. I did see one non-professional website that claimed that "it takes longer for the watson form to take effect, " but I do not know if this is true or not. Also get your levels checked after you are started on this. If the level is good, your symptom control should be good. ...Read more

Does Effexor (venlafaxine) raise shbg (sex hormone binding gobulin) levels?

Does Effexor (venlafaxine) raise shbg (sex hormone binding gobulin) levels?

Interesting question: I have not found any publications specifically studying this question. Antipsychotics and Prozac (fluoxetine) can affect prolactin, potentially changing sex hormone levels. This may or may not relate to shbg levels, though. I did find one small (20 patients) study online concerning low testosterone levels and antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction: http://tinyurl.Com/mk84cfr further research needed. ...Read more

Desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control--is it good?

Desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control--is it good?

Not my 1st choice: I do not like that pill, and it has 30mcg of estrogen and it is 21 days. There are many pills that have less estrogen which is better- less chance for estrogen related side effects. My number one pill i prescribe is loloestin, it only has 10 mcg estrogen which is safer and it has 24 active pills and then 2 estrogen pills so only 2 placebo pills , so you get lighter periods and less chance of a cys. ...Read more
