Postmenopause Panel™ (PostM™) and Perimenopause Panel™ (PeriM™)

Menopause is a natural and usually gradual change in glandular function in women resulting in substantial shifts in hormone levels.
The Postmenopause Panel™ provides measurements of six key hormones:

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

The Perimenopause Panel™ contains the same components as the Postmenopause Panel™ but sampled twice, 13-15 days apart.
The inclusion of FSH and LH in the expanded Postmenopause Panel™ (ePostM™) and expanded Perimenopause Panel™ (ePeriM™), extends the interpretation to include pituitary involvement.
