Not sure what forum to post this in. My wife 41yr old 5’8 130lbs body fat 19% has had decreased libido and decreased sexual desire with fatigue for years. She also has IUD.
Labs before treatment from Gyn showed:
T free < 0.09 Range. 0.10 - 0.85
T serum < 3 Range 8 - 48
% free T. 2.96. Range. 0.50 - 2.80
After 3 months of topical T cream labs:
T level 12. Range 9 - 55
Free T. 1.3. Range 1.1- 5.8
SHGB. 64*. Range 30-135
Still no improvement with libido so testosterone cypionate was given by inj at 20mg q 7 days.
After 1 month libido is best she has ever experienced and sexual desire much improved. She is very happy. No side effects thus far.
Free T 23 Range. 1.1-5.8
T level. 147 Range 9-55
Androstenedione. 0.764 Range 0.134-0.820
SHBG. 39 Range 30-135
DHEA. 43. Premenopausal range 35-430
Thyroid, T3,T4. normal ranges per lab ref range
Is there concern that SHGB decreased from 64 to 39?
Are these T levels too high for a female?
Is there any other labs that should be drawn?
Any side effects she needs to watch for if levels stay this high for months or years?
She likes her new found libido and desire ( I do too) but is worried levels are too high for a women. We have found it difficult to find ranges for women and acceptable levels. Most info is for men. Any help or guidance would be super helpful. Thx.
