    I was more looking at the scientfic part of it and I think It may dawned me what happened. Due to the hcg, dhea and altered estrogen metabolism which was never addressed from the start. It was not the estrodial causing the problem but the elevated estrone and its metabolism which was driving up the shbg due to undermethyation of the liver for the longest time and its methyated metabolites. For some reason my body was converting androsteindione and progesterone into estrone. Not supporting the metabolism at the begining caused depeltion of methy groups choline, folate, b-12. Could this have been a genetic fluke from the start possible or heavy metals such as mercury (which iodine deficincy could be responsible for and is now indicated. )
