Saliva hormone tests?

Has anyone else tried any of the various saliva hormone tests available (for progesterone, estrogen, etc)? Has anyone asked their doctor about them? I have read the websites that tout how accurate their tests are supposed to be and why saliva tests are better than blood tests. However, I've never heard of any doctors doing saliva hormone tests, only blood tests...so it makes me wonder if these saliva tests are just ploys to get my money!! I'm pretty skeptical about the saliva tests, but wonder if anyone else has used them or had any experience with them.
