See regular doctors: See regular doctors for hormonal symptoms, such as primary care doctors and endocrinologists. Non-MD's and other "practitioners" may talk a good talk and offer some "really interesting testing", but it's best to stick with the real thing... see a regular MD.

Check medications: If your physician prescribed anti-anxiety medications and others you are experiencing dry mouth. Several medications suppress saliva flow and cause you to be at risk to develop cavities for excessive dryness in the mouth. Ask first the reason to test your saliva before you do it and see how that could help you improve your situation. There are medications you can take to stimulate saliva flow.

No: Your ovaries are likely still working. Many people seek solutions for mood and stress via ovarian hormones. You could get a serum fsh that can tell if the ovaries are functioning, but serum testing can reveal fluctuations. Do you grind teeth when sleeping? Do you have panic attacks, crying spells, low energy, etc. I'm not saying its all psychiatric just don't use resources seeking perfect horm.
