What is the purpose of this test?
Order this Menopause Plus, Saliva Test Kit, a comprehensive salivary hormone test that evaluates levels of key hormones in both women and men. Eight specimens collected over six days are examined for estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, the progesterone/estradiol ratio (P/E2), and testosterone.
