Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) can be used as an indicator for estrogenicity of contraceptives preparations. SHBG levels were higher in women using combined oral contraceptives than in non-users and these variations were positively correlated with thrombin generation. No change in SHBG was observed in users of progestin-only contraceptives. SHBG may be used as a biomarker in assessing prothrombotic profile of hormonal contraception. This work has been published in Biomarkers.
