However authorities in most countries do not allow the saliva testers to advertise themselves as contraceptives. Saliva fertility detectors measure estrogen levels as they rise and fall every cycle to help predict and pinpoint your ovulation. Estrogen levels are controlled by a very complex interplay of hormones within the body that prepare the ovaries.
