Children

1-14 days: Estradiol levels in newborns are very elevated at birth, but will fall to prepubertal levels within a few days.

**Estradiol levels may vary widely through the menstrual cycle.

Puberty onset (transition from Tanner Stage I to Tanner Stage II) occurs for girls at a median age of 10.5 y (±2) years. There is evidence that it may occur up to 1 year earlier in obese girls and in African American girls. Progression through Tanner stages is variable. Tanner Stage V (adult) should be reached by age 18.

Puberty onset (transition from Tanner Stage I to Tanner Stage II) occurs for boys at a median age of 11.5 y (±2) years. For boys, there is no proven relationship between puberty onset and body weight or ethnic origin. Progression through Tanner stages is variable. Tanner Stage V (adult) should be reached by age 18.

 

Use:For evaluation of feminization in men.
