Postmenopause and Perimenopause Hormone Panels

Menopause is a natural and usually gradual change in glandular function in women resulting in substantial shifts in hormone levels.

The Postmenopause Hormone Panel (PostM) provides measurements of six key hormones:

  1. Estrone (E1)
  2. Estradiol (E2)
  3. Estriol (E3)
  4. Progesterone
  5. Testosterone
  6. DHEA & DHEA-S

The Perimenopause Hormone Panel (PeriM) contains the same components as the PostM, but sampled twice, 13-15 days apart.

The inclusion of FSH and LH in the expanded Postmenopause Hormone Panel (ePostM) and expanded Perimenopause Hormone Panel (ePeriM), extends the interpretation to include pituitary involvement.
