Best Answer

"Some women feel as though they're salivating more than usual during pregnancy, especially when they're nauseated. A few women have so much saliva they end up needing to spit to deal with it. Excessive salivation is called ptyalism or sialorrhea and is more common among women suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness.

Experts don't know what causes some women to have excessive salivation in early pregnancy, but hormonal changes may be a culprit. Also, nausea might make some women try to swallow less, causing saliva to build up in the mouth." from the babycenter

What causes extreme salivation in the mouth in pregnancy and what is the solution?

Ptyalism or excessive saliva during pregnancy is caused by your body A.) producing extra saliva due to hormones or B.) swallowing less due to pregnancy complications like morning sickness. If the issue is caused by hormones it will go away shortly after the baby is born. If it is caused by complications it will go away after the irritating issue stops or the baby is born.


Can you become pregnant from saliva?

You can not get pregnancy with saliva. Saliva does not contain sperms. Sperms are must for fertilization to take place.


Can a saliva test confirm pregnancy?

It is possible that saliva can show evidence of pregnancy, but the results would not be %100 accurate. When your saliva is viewed through a microscope it shows crystallized "ferning" patterns when your body releases estrogen (during ovulation and right before your period). Your saliva then returns to "normal" once these stages have passed. (Normal saliva shows up as spotted clear liquid when seen through a microscope.) If your saliva continues to show a ferning pattern it may be a sign of pregnancy due to your body releasing more hormones to support the pregnancy. But not all women show this ferning pattern and not all saliva tests can be considered accurate due to the fact that eating or drinking anything prior to the test can contaminate the samples. (These tests should be done first thing in the AM before brushing teeth, drinking, smoking, etc.) Also, as your body prepares for pregnancy it releases hormones at different times so ferning may not show up every day. So in short, yes it is possible that your saliva can show that you are pregnant, but saliva ferning test results can be too unreliable to know for sure. A blood test should be done by your doctor before you can really be certain of pregnancy.
