This test is used to evaluate fetal distress and placental function in the management of patients facing complications such as pre-eclampsia, fetal growth retardation, diabetes, Rh immunization, choriocarcinoma, and hydatidiform mole.
Estriol is one of the three major forms of estrogen.
This is the major form produced during pregnancy, most of it in the placenta. These levels begin at about the 8th week pregnancy and continue to rise until shortly before delivery. Estriol levels are important in assessing what is going on with the fetus and placenta at any time.
