Does anyone recommend a saliva test to check hormones?

Aaah you talking about the ovuscope and maybe baby microscope type things? To check for ovulation? If so I’ve used the ovuscope. I find it a little fiddly some days trying to get a sample on the scope – and some random days it takes FOREVER to dry but it does seem to give me ferning during my fertile window and this stops a day after O has been confirmed by temping. At the beginning I used it every day now I just start around CD6-8 and continue until it stops ferning (around CD15ish).

Sorry if I am completely off base but thats the only saliva one i know – but i do know it only checks for estrogen levels so I am thinking I AM off base hehe

@candy11:  ooops sorry I was way off base 🙂 I’d never heard of the testing so was interested to read the ZRT lab stuff 🙂 even if I can’t do it from this side of the world… Amazing what you can do these days!!

I have heard of this, but through a naturopath – they would be able to interpret the results & make suggestions if required.
