I tried this but gave up because i kept forgetting! You get fern patterns for about 4days before ovulation and when your not ovulating it should be clear with just random specks!
The thing is i found that i got fern patterns even when i didn't ovulate apparantly this can be a sign of too much estrogen, But i think what you eat can effect the result! Its best to do it first thing in the morning before you eat anything because sometimes the salt in your food can be mixed with your saliva and cause a ferning effect!
Also i didn't buy a proper saliva test i just went to the toy store and bought a cheap microscope which is actually better and alot cheaper! I was so tempted to see if i could see the husbands sperm under it! lol he wouldn't let me though sorry (tmi) i can't believe i just admitted that im embarrassed now
good look with the saliva testing (hope i havn't given you any other ideas lol)
