Abstract

A collaborative effort to improve steroid hormone measurements in patient care was convened by the Centers for Disease Control in March 2008 to discuss the need for enhanced performance and standardization of clinical estradiol and testosterone assays. This article discusses the current status of estradiol and testosterone assays in the treatment of infertile women to include the assessment of ovarian reserve, ovulation induction and follicle tracking, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, and the role of testosterone in fertility management.
