Estradiol (E2)

Estradiol (E2)

A female hormone that’s produced by ovarian follicles and determines how well a woman is responding to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation with fertility drugs. If you’re doing IVF, your bloodwork will be measuring your levels of estradiol. The higher the estradiol, the more follicles that are likely developing and (fingers crossed) the more eggs that may be retrieved.
