Estriol is a steroid hormone and one of the three estrogens in a woman (estradiol and estrone are the others). This sexual hormone is secreted by the ovaries and its rate increases noticeably during pregnancy. Estriol is metabolized from estradiol, weaker than the other two, but still active. Although it is most commonly linked to pregnancy since it is produced in the most measurable amounts at that time, it is still present throughout a woman's lifetime at varying levels.
Your saliva samples will test: Estriol (E3) levels.

This Estriol Saliva Home Test will measure the estriol levels in your body and tell you if your estriol levels are within the expected optimal range depending on your age and sex. Even though estriol is considered to have the least significance of the three estrogens in the body due to its weak estrogenic activity, it shouldn't be ignored. This hormone has beneficial effects for bone density, cardiovascular health, multiple sclerosis and postmenopausal urinary tract health.
It's particularly useful during pregnancy to know if your estriol levels are within the expected optimal range. Research data has been leaning towards the concept that low levels of unbound estriol in pregnant women may indicate chromosomal or congenital anomalies like Down Syndrome or Edward's Syndrome.
