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 pogesterone, when dealing with estrogen dominance.

The test analyzes the morning value of the following hormones:

  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone

Our Estrogen Dominance Test gives you information about the ratio of estrogen to progesterone in your body and allows 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. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions? Then you can contact us by phone at +44 (0)20 3286 6316 or mail at contact@verisana.co.uk.

Test measures
For the Estrogen Dominance 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.

    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:

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

If you can estimate when you are in the second cycle phase, the test should be carried out then. If you cannot estima this either, the samples can be collected any day. However, in this case we cannot say whether progesterone and estradiol are in the normal range, since this depends on the cycle phase.

How can stress cause an estrogen dominance?

When stressed, the body needs more cortisol. In order to maintain the vital cortisol level, it is able to convert progesterone to cortisol. The more progesterone is used to produce cortisol, the less is available to balance estradiol. Over time, an estrogen dominance is the outcome.
