Many couples struggling with infertility, or those just tracking ovulation to calculate their most fertile days, are familiar with the multitude of charts to help track your cycle. Yet, along with all the charting, many couples report a loss of desire and the negative impact of the increased stress at trying to become pregnant, which is known to lessen chances of conceiving.
Gone are the days of waking early to take your basal body temperature. Cambridge Temperature Concepts has devised a handy advanced fertility monitor that constantly charts your fertility 24 hours a day and claims a full refund if you aren’t pregnant within 12 months.
The non-invasive devise can predict ovulation up to six days in advance with 99 percent accuracy and takes 20,000 body clock readings a day.
A discreet patch containing a small 3 centimeter sensor is placed under the arm and can then just be forgotten about while the sensor continuously tracks your fertility throughout the day. When the wearer is ready they can just hold the reader, not unlike a computer mouse, over the underarm patch and all the data will be transferred wirelessly to the reader. For ease of tracking it comes with a USB cable that allows you to download it to your computer.
The duofertility monitor tracks the tiny body temperature changes that occur before ovulation but allows you a six day window to let you know of your most fertile day. Conventional tracking has always meant charting your temperature, ovulation pain, libido and cervical mucus to predict the best time to conceive. The monitor allows for a more convenient, relaxed and less awkward method by allowing the sensor and reader to do all the charting for you.
The bad news is that it hasn’t been given U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval yet – it’s still pending – but should hopefully be on the market in the not too distant future.
The monitor is more expensive than other fertility predictors but with the accuracy statistics it is well worth the price.
