Mail-order companies offer saliva tests to measure estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. You can order the kit to do your own saliva testing and then get the results by phone, email, or a mailed report. This may appeal to you for several reasons. You can avoid the unpleasant experience of having your blood drawn; you can do the saliva test yourself in the privacy of your home without a doctor's visit; and you are taking charge of your own care.
