Estradiol (E2) is the most common form of the steroid hormone estrogen and the major female sex hormone across most species of animals. It regulates female reproductive cycles, is responsible for the development and maintenance of female reproductive organs, drives the formation of female secondary sex characteristics during puberty, and plays a significant role in female mental health and mood-regulation. In males, E2 helps to extend the life of sperm cells and may play a role in programming male sexual behavior early in life. Estradiol also influences many gender neutral processes, including skeletal growth and maintenance, skin firmness and elasticity, nervous system maintenance, and liver function. The hormone is commonly used as a treatment for menopausal symptoms and for individuals receiving transgender hormone replacement therapy. Abnormal levels of E2 are implicated in hormonal cancers, particularly cancers of female reproductive organs, such as breast and ovarian cancer.
