Post Menopause Panel by lab test on demand checks the two hormones Estradiol and Progesterone Immonoassy measuring if they fall within normal ranges for menopausal states. Testing these hormone levels may help women taking or considering taking hormone replacement therapy.
Once a menopausal woman has gone twelve months without a period, the transition is generally considered complete and she enters post-menopause. At this stage, her ovaries have essentially stopped producing estradiol and progesterone, she is no longer ovulating, and can no longer become pregnant. Though this is all part of the normal course of aging, there are some health issues that are associated with menopause and the post-menopausal stage of life
Preparation: No fasting is necessary for this test.
Estradiol Test measures the level of Estradiol (E2) in the blood.
Estradiol is a very important hormone for both women and men. Estradiol acts in the growth and maintenance of organs related to sex and fertility.
The Estradiol Test checks for sexual and ovarian function in women to assess infertility, abnormal menstruation or symptoms of menopause.
In men, Estradiol helps maintain sperm cell health.
Progesterone Test measures the level of the hormone Progesterone in your body.
Progesterone is a hormone produced by the ovaries and the adrenal glands. In women it regulates the reproductive system (fertility, pregnancy, menstruation). In men, low levels of progesterone are involved in the production of semen.
The test evaluates ovarian function and time of ovulation to understand causes of infertility.
