Oestradiol is a steroid hormone which is a type of estrogen produced by the ovaries. The function of Oestradiol is to maintain the menstrual cycle. Oestradiol is essentially called the female sex hormone as it is responsible for the growth and development of the female reproductive organs mainly breast tissues and also bone density. Oestradiol in males is present in lesser quantities for the function of other glands. Oestradiol is closely connected with Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone. The level of Oestradiol in females is highest during puberty and gradually decreases with age, especially after menopause.

Why take the test?

The Oestradiol Blood Test can detect the levels of Oestradiol in the blood. Women who have attained the age of 50 and above, and are on their way to menopause have the lowest amounts of Oestradiol in their blood. This can lead to hot flashes, infertility issues, osteoporosis, night sweats and mood swings. A hormonal imbalance can significantly affect the physical and mental well being of an individual. Men that are concerned about abnormal breast tissue growth and women facing abnormal menstrual cycles can take the Oestradiol Blood Test to find the underlying issue. Along with the report, we also provide our Certified Doctor's comments.

Expert’s Opinion

Experts Opinion on Oestradiol Home Tests

"In women, oestradiol plays an essential role in reproduction, helping the ovary release an egg, bone health and fat distribution. Levels of this hormone can fluctuate on a day-to-day basis. A key reason to monitor this hormone level is to evaluate the ovarian function, to aid diagnosis of amenorrhoea (absent periods) or menopausal symptoms and help evaluate delayed or too early puberty in younger patients."
