What are the active sex hormones in the female body?
Extra info: Ethinylestradiol is a synthetic oestrogen that is used in oral contraceptives. Progestagens compose the entire group of hormones, of which progesterone is the only natural product. Estrone is least prevalent and weaker than estradiol. Estriol is only produced in significant amounts during pregnancy.
