Details
Who should take the test?

Are you suffering from painful menstruation? Concerned about depressive moods? The concentration of the female sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone) is essential for a problem free menstrual cycle.

Estrogen dominance affects women of all ages. It may occur after coming off the pill as well as during the menopause. As a healthy balance between estrogen and progesterone is important for female well-being, it is crucial to determine not only the absolute values of each hormone, but the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, when dealing with estrogen dominance.

The test analyzes the morning values of the following hormones:

  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone

Test measures
For the Estrogen Dominance Test we analyse:
  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone
Estradiol and Progesterone

Among the female sex hormones, estrogens hold the utmost significance. Estrogen is, in fact, a collective term for a group of hormones, with Estradiol being the most biologically active during women’s fertile years.

It is responsible for:

  • The development of the female body, from girl to woman
  • The monthly regeneration and protection of the endometrium (womb)
  • Breast growth
  • The elasticity of the blood vessels
  • Radiant skin and healthy hair
  • Moist eyes and mucous membranes
  • Clear thinking processes
  • Stabilisation of moods

Progesterone is produced by the ovaries shortly after ovulation in order to prepare the uterus for a possible pregnancy and to protect the mucous lining of the uterus. Together with Estrogen, the most important of the female sex hormones, progesterone regulates the menstrual cycle.

The sensitive balance between estrogen and progesterone

Estrogen values tend to fluctuate throughout a woman’s lifetime, not just during the menstrual cycle. The strength of these fluctuations is different for each individual and the body reacts to them with different symptoms. It is not just a deficiency in Estrogen that can cause physical complaints: an excess, or Estrogen dominance, can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, such as water retention, nausea, depressive moods, tiredness, listlessness, lack of concentration, anxiety, breast sensitivity, cysts and fibroids, painful menstruation, and weight gain.

While it may seem paradoxical, both Estrogen dominance and Estrogen deficiency can coexist due to the intricate, synchronized interplay between Estrogen and progesterone. The levels of Estrogen determine the requisite amount of progesterone. An Estrogen dominance can manifest when the body fails to produce sufficient progesterone in proportion to its Estrogen levels. Conversely, an Estrogen deficiency can also transpire if the body inadequately produces Estrogen when it doesn’t generate the appropriate proportion of progesterone.

Therefore, in the case of an Estrogen deficiency it is important to not only determine the absolute values of the individual hormones, but also the ratio of Estrogen to progesterone.

    I suspected an estrogen dominance , but my doctor wouldn’t test for it. So I ordered this test and it showed I was right. The lab results were thorough, quick and easy to understand even for a non medical person like me.

    I chose this test because it wasn’t that expensive and I hoped it would show what was wrong with my hormone system. Unfortunately it only showed that the problem wasn’t the estrogen dominance I suspected. So I had to take another test to check on other hoormones as well. Turned out to be an adrenal gland problem. In retrospect it would have been much faster (and cheaper) to do the full comprehensive profile right from the beginning. So unless you’re a houndred percent sure what you are looking for, I would rather recommend a comprehensive test instead. Collection process and everything else was easy and fast.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

Why is it important to test for estrogen and progesterone levels?

Maintaining a proper balance between estrogen and progesterone is essential for a healthy menstrual cycle and overall well-being. Imbalances in these hormones can lead to issues like painful menstruation and mood disturbances.

Who can benefit from taking this test?

This test can be valuable for women of all ages. Whether you've recently discontinued birth control pills or are experiencing menopause, understanding your hormone levels can be crucial for your health.

How does estrogen dominance impact women?

Estrogen dominance can lead to various health problems, including menstrual irregularities, mood swings, and more. It is important to address this imbalance for female well-being.

How can stress cause an estrogen dominance?

During periods of stress, the body requires increased cortisol levels. To sustain this crucial cortisol balance, the body has the capability to transform progesterone into cortisol. However, as more progesterone gets utilized for cortisol production, there is a reduced amount available to regulate estradiol. This prolonged shift in hormonal balance eventually leads to estrogen dominance.

My cycle is so irregular that I cannot determine the right day for sample collection.

If you can pinpoint the second phase of your cycle, it's advisable to perform the test during that time. If you're unable to determine this phase, you can collect samples on any day. Nevertheless, in the latter scenario, it's challenging to ascertain whether progesterone and estradiol levels fall within the normal range, as this hinges on the specific phase of the menstrual cycle.
