Abstract

Salivary and serum levels of estradiol and progesterone were measured by radioimmunoassay in 10 Chinese women during their normal menstrual cycles. Changes in salivary estradiol and progesterone levels followed a similar pattern to that in the serum. Significant correlation was found between salivary and serum levels of estradiol and progesterone (p < 0.001). Measurements of these salivary steroids may be used to assess follicular dynamics. Moreover, salivary sampling is simple, convenient and stress free. © 1990.
