Oestradiol (stimulated)

About this test

Oestradiol is a steroid hormone that has numerous important functions in females.

Oestradiol is mainly synthesized in and secreted from the placenta, ovarian follicle, and adrenal cortex.

Oestradiol is responsible for growth of the uterus, fallopian tubes and vagina; promotion of breast development; maturation of the external genitalia; deposition of body fat in a female distribution; and termination of linear growth. Oestradiol stimulates the proliferation of the endometrium in the first half of the menstrual cycle.

Oestradiol is metabolised to oestrone and oestriol by various target tissues.

An Oestradiol test is used to evaluate function of the ovaries, placenta, or adrenal glands, particularly when certain types of ovarian tumour are suspected, or when there is delayed or abnormal development of male or female body characteristics.
