One Day Progesterone / Oestradiol is a simple salivary test that examines one specimen for levels of oestradiol and progesterone in women who are menopausal. Results can be used to identify imbalances contributing to menopause symptoms and various systemic disorders, and to determine the need for hormone replacement therapy including natural, cream-based formulas.
One Day Progesterone / Oestradiol is ideal for:
• The prevention and treatment of menopause-related symptoms and conditions
• Prescribing and monitoring Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
• Monitoring hormone levels in women on the contraceptive pill
