I'd think modest exercise would be ok before the blood draw as long as your hydration status isn't significantly affected. My understanding is that PSA and prolactin are the tests that may be affected by sex in the day or so before.

Thanks. I was aware of PSA was affected by recent orgasm. I mainly Wanted to make sure I would not get a false high Free and total T level is sex/orgasm within 24 hrs.

exercise:swim 3x/wk & marrial arts 2x/wk

Blood tested 9/19/18

Total = 580 ng/dL (250-827) 59.9%
Free T= 6.87 (4.6- 22.4) 12.8% (10.8 calc)

SHBG= 39 10.0-50.0) 72.5%

Bio-avail= 14.2 (110-575) 8.0%

DHES =not tested %

Estradiol = 22 (<39)

DHES =231 (38-313) =45.5% tested 2/14/18

Currently on 50mcg Synthroid (T4)
TSH = 0.99
Free T4 = 1.30 (0.80 - 1.80)  =50.0% of range
Free T3 = 3.3 (2.3-4.2) = 52.6% of range
Current protocol: 100mg DIM once per day. Reduction back from 200 mg. For 12 weeks. raised total T, freeT remained basically unchanged due to increases SHBG. Estradiol decrease from 30 to 22. Felt no better and maybe worse than at 100mg DIM so going back starting 9/25/18

Digging further into the sex/testosterone connection reveals that under some circumstance levels can go much higher after sex. However, I get the sense that in stable couples the effect on the next day's levels would be pretty small.

I wonder if having a vasectomy has any effect. As some of the ejaculate is retained in the man’s body to be reabsorbed and not dumped overboard? And outside the body.
