Steroid hormones bind to receptors inside the cell

Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is thought to mainly function as a transporter and reservoir for the estradiol and testosterone sex hormones. However it has also been demonstrated that SHBG can bind to a cell surface receptor (SHBG-R). The SHBG-R has not been completely characterized. A subset of steroids are able to bind to the SHBG/SHBG-R complex resulting in an activation of adenylyl cyclase and synthesis of the cAMP second messenger. [19] Hence the SHBG/SHBG-R complex appears to act as a transmembrane steroid receptor that is capable of transmitting signals to the interior of cells.

I just started using Endoflex and Dragon Time. I’m 40 and everything is whacked out hormone wise. Well…. Who am I kidding, it’s been whacked out for about 10 years now. The Endoflex I think is making me really sleepy. I’m hoping it’s my body’s way of starting to heal and it will all get better soon.
My question is how do you use the dragon time? Do you take it everyday? Where do you apply it and how often? I can’t seem to find a lot of info on the how and how much for Dragon Time.

Because non-genomic pathways include any mechanism that is not a genomic effect, there are various non-genomic pathways. However, all of these pathways are mediated by some type of steroid hormone receptor found at the plasma membrane. [13] Ion channels, transporters, G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR), and membrane fluidity have all been shown to be affected by steroid hormones. [9] Of these, GPCR linked proteins are the most more information on these proteins and pathways, visit the steroid hormone receptor page.

Help me understand: I was using a progesterone cream (40 mg/ day) but when I realized I needed estrogen too, my gynecologist put me on the pill. It has much less progestin (.5 mcg). How do they compare? Is the “natural” hormone so much less effective? That’s why I would need so much more of it? (As compared to what’s in the pill?) Trouble is: the pill isn’t helping me w/ any of my menopausal symptoms except vaginal dryness. I don’t like being on the pill. But my doctor can’t prescribe estrogen alone (and then I would self-prescribe the progesterone cream)… I’m trying to figure out if I can get enough estrogen just from food. Particular point I want to understand here is: how do the synthetic hormones compare w/ natural ones in terms of potency/ dosage/ bioavailablity — all that stuff.
