Figure 2: These normal values apply only to the laboratory methods used at the National Hormone Laboratory of the Pope Paul VI Institute. The E2 profile is obtained by drawing E2 levels every other day from P − 5 (or P − 6) through P + 2 (with reference to the CREIGHTON MODEL Fertility Care TM System), obtained from the endocrine evaluation of 57 spontaneous cycles which were sonographically identified as containing a mature follicle with a positive cumulus oophorus and complete rupture (anatomically normal ovulation by ultrasound). The E2 sum is obtained by adding the E2 values in the E2 profile to include the level before the peak level, the peak level and the level after the peak level (3 value sum) or the two levels before the peak level, the peak level and the level after the peak level (4 value sums). The E2 mean is the average of the 3 (3 value) or 4 (4 value) levels that are used to make up the 3- and 4-value sums. SD = Standard deviation.
