Measure levels of Estradiol (E2) horrmone in the blood
Estradiol (E2) is the most commonly measured type of estrogen for nonpregnant women. The amount of estradiol in a woman's blood varies throughout her menstrual cycle. After menopause, estradiol production drops to a very low but constant level. Diagnostic applications of estradiol assays include assessment of ovarian function in a wide variety of situations (menstrual disorders, precocious or delayed puberty, assisted reproduction protocols).
For men, Estradiol (E2) measurement may be useful in the evaluation of gynecomastia.
