Who should take the test?

Estrogens are the most important of the female sex hormones. 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.

Although it may sound contradictory, an estrogen dominance can occur at the same time as an estrogen deficiency due to the fine, coordinated balance between estrogen and progesterone. The estrogen levels define how much progesterone is needed. An estrogen dominance can occur if the body is not producing enough progesterone for the level of estrogen. This means it can also occur if the body is not producing enough estrogen (estrogen deficiency) if the body is also not producing the relative amount 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.

The test analyzes the morning values of the following hormones:

  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone

Our Estrogen Saliva Test gives you information about the ratio of estrogen to progesterone in your body. This may allow you to identify the underlying cause for your complaints.

How does it work?

You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each hormone and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.

What will my results tell me?

Your results will provide detailed information about whether your estradiol and progesterone levels are normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Although we do not offer therapy service ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?

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

Estrogens are the most important of the female sex hormones. Estrogen is actually made up of a group of hormones, but Estradiol is biologically the most active during the fertile years of women.

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.

Although it may sound contradictory, an Estrogen dominance can occur at the same time as an Estrogen deficiency due to the fine, coordinated balance between Estrogen and progesterone. The Estrogen levels define how much progesterone is needed. An Estrogen dominance can occur if the body is not producing enough progesterone for the level of Estrogen. This means it can also occur if the body is not producing enough Estrogen (Estrogen deficiency) if the body is also not producing the relative amount 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.

Any Questions?

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

I no longer have a uterus and therefore cannot estimate where I am in my cycle?

In this case, the samples can be collected any day. However, we cannot state whether progesterone and estradiol are in the normal range, since this depends on the cycle phase. We therefore recommend that you have the results assessed by a doctor or alternative practitioner.

What can be the cause of an estrogen deficiency?

In addition to the natural aging process, which is the most common cause, hormonal contraceptives (such as birth control pills) or adrenal fatigue can also be the cause. In the latter, the adrenal glands produce too little DHEA, a preliminary hormone that the body needs to produce estrogens. The result is an estrogen deficiency.
