Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER.
There are a number of reasons for increased saliva production. Among them include pregnancy (rule that one out if your not able to be pregnant), a mouth infection of some sort, or reflux of the esophagus (GERD). If this is an ongoing problem, you may want to get an appointment with your doctor to rule out different causes to get to the root of the problem.
Here is more information from the Mayo Clinic website about this symptom: Mayo Clinic: Excessive Saliva
Good luck, and let us know what you find out.
