The #209 includes a single salivary measurement of estradiol, estriol, DHEA-S, testosterone, and progesterone. This panel, the #209E, includes an additional measurement of estrone. This test can be used to do a single measurement of each of these hormones in one day. Hormones fluctuate in both premenopause and perimenopause. These fluctuations are part of a normal cycle in the premenopausal woman. In perimenopause, hormone fluctuations can be more erratic with estrogen reaching highs and lows in no predictable pattern and progesterone dropping off significantly as a woman approaches menopause.
