This Estradiol Test is an ultrasensitive test designed to measure the amount of estradiol (a form of estrogen) in the blood. In women, estradiol is released from the ovaries and adrenal glands and helps in the growth of the uterus, vagina, and Fallopian tubes. To a lesser degree, men release small amounts of estradiol from the testes to help prevent sperm from dying too quickly. This Estradiol Test is recommended for those with a potential estradiol sensitivity.

How Estradiol Tests Work

For our Estradiol Ultrasensitive Test, simply place your order online and stop by one of our 4,000+ nationwide testing facilities at your convenience (no appointment required). A member of the center’s staff will collect a small blood sample at which point your part of the process is done. The sample collection itself takes only a few minutes and most patients are in, out and about their day in under a half-hour. From there, your sample will be processed in a CLIA-certified laboratory using a Liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS-MS) method. In as little as 24-72 hours, you’ll have full test results regarding your estradiol levels and any sensitivity of E2 levels.

Common Symptoms

Estradiol levels can have a significant effect on everyday functions such as puberty, menstrual cycles and ovary function.1 Due to this, symptoms may vary. However, some of the most common symptoms of estradiol deficiency or overabundance may include:

  • Abnormal periods or bleeding
  • Infertility
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent urination
  • Bloating or swelling in your abdomen
  • Pain in your abdominal and pelvic area

If you’ve been experiencing any common symptoms, consult your doctor or one of our care counselors to see if an estradiol test makes sense for you.

How to Interpret Your Results

Delivered via a secure link to your email, your results will provide a quantifiable result and reference range for estradiol (a form of estrogen). This chart will include a column that declares in plain language whether your result is in the normal range or if it is “flagged”. A flagged item can be interpreted as a potential hormonal imbalance.

Estrogen vs Estradiol Ultrasensitive Test

Although estradiol is a form of estrogen, it is just one of three types of estrogen. Our estrogen test indicates levels of all three types of estrogen in your blood, while estradiol testing is specific to a single specific hormone.
