The Purpose of an Estradiol Test

Estradiol, or E2, is the most active type of estrogen in humans. It’s mainly produced in the ovaries, but men also make this hormone in smaller amounts in the testes. Estradiol plays a significant role in reproductive health, affecting everything from sex drive to fertility. Additionally, it can influence other aspects of your overall well-being, such as bone strength, thyroid function, and mental health.

An estradiol blood test can be used at many stages of a woman’s life. It may determine the cause of delayed puberty, assess fertility issues related to ovulation and conception, and help evaluate symptoms associated with menopause.

What Does the Estradiol Lab Test Measure?

This test shows the level of estradiol in your blood.

Who Should Take a Blood Test for Estradiol?

Women may want to be tested if they are:

  • Struggling with infertility.
  • Dealing with irregular menstruation.
  • Experiencing symptoms associated with menopause or postmenopausal bleeding.

Men may also consider taking an estradiol test if they want to assess their estrogen levels.

E2 Test Preparation

No special preparation is required for your E2 lab test.

Estradiol Blood Test Results

Result ranges will vary based on gender and age. The levels are typically shown in picograms per milliliter (pg/mL). The normal levels for men are 10 to 50 pg/mL; for women, they are 30 to 400 pg/mL (premenopausal) or 0 to 30 pg/mL (postmenopausal).

Abnormally high or low levels on an E2 test can be linked to many different health issues, which may require further analysis with health tests geared toward men or women. If you want to seek a consultation with a doctor to discuss your results, schedule a telehealth appointment with one of our board-certified physicians.
