About Estrogen

Estrogen is a female hormone that is secreted mainly by the ovaries and in small quantities by the adrenal glands.  There are three main forms of estrogen: 

Estrone (E1): is the major estrogen produced after the menopause. It is derived from chemicals released from the adrenal gland and is also made in adipose tissue (fat).

Estradiol (E2): is the most active estrogen, mainly produced in the ovary in women and therefore falls at the menopause. Normal levels of estradiol are important for ovulation, conception, and pregnancy, in addition to promoting healthy bone structure and regulating cholesterol levels in females.

Estriol (E3): is the major estrogen in pregnancy, with relatively large amounts produced in the placenta. Estriol levels start to rise in the eighth week of pregnancy and continue to rise until shortly before delivery.
