Estrogen is a female sex hormone. Estrogen levels can also be measured in men to diagnose low testosterone.

  • Sample Type: Blood
  • Results: 2-8 days
  • Age: 18+

Estrogen is a hormone produced primarily in the ovaries, though men also produce small amounts in the testis and brain. Estrogen is an essential hormone for female reproductive health. It also plays a small role in the development of bones, and in cardiovascular and cognitive health.

The Estrogen Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring levels of estrogen in the blood. An estrogen test can help screen for fertility issues, certain types of tumors, and menopause.

No fasting is required. Patients must avoid having a radioisotope scan prior to the collection of specimens.
