This is odd,

Estriol is 50x increased in pregnancy (Most potent)

and Estradiol is increased 1000x, so majority would be Estradiol. (Less potent)

estrogen three forms
estradiol is always present in a reproductive female n is most potent
estriol is seen in pregnancy , produced by placenta from DHEAS synthesised by fetal liver n adrenals
estrone is produced by ovary n adipose tissue by the action of aromatase its predominant in postmenopausal woman

1. Estr'ONE' = E1 = appears when menstual cycles are g'ONE'.

2. Estra'DI'ol = E2 = peaks 'D'uring 'I'ntermenstrual period.

3. Es'TRI'ol = E3 = appears during the 'TRI'mesters of pregnancy.
