Do we recommend saliva testing for hormones?

We have found Saliva testing is unreliable for Oestrogen, progesterone and other gonadal hormones. Our doctors do schedule blood tests which can be good as a monitoring tool but can also be unreliable especially in diagnosing hormone deficiency in perimenopausal women because in this stage of the menopause journey, hormones fluctuate even on an hourly basis. Our doctors prescribe on symptoms and use blood tests as a guideline not as a diagnostic tool. Saliva tests have their place but not in detecting oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone as the results are volatile and easily contaminated.
