This blood test is used to measure total circulating estrogens. The three major naturally occurring estrogens are present in significant quantities in blood. They are estradiol (E2), estrone (E1) and estriol (E3). Because estradiol and estrone fluctuate during a womanâ€™s cycle and menopause, some providers prefer this test when evaluating estrogen levels. Estrogenâ€™s role in supporting health and well-being is as significant as it is diverse. To name a few, estrogen affects emotions moods, attention and language skills.
