Detailede information

Report from Goodpoint

Based on the ability to bind to the androgen receptor, bind to SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) and studies on fish make medroxyprogesterone a much lower environmental risk than levonorgestrel and norethisterone. The ability of a substance to activate the androgen receptor in fish probably contributes to increased risk of environmental impact, and binding to SHBG is believed to contribute to increased bioconcentration (and thus potency) in fish.
