Fertility monitors - tracking hormone levels and fertile days
If you’re planning on getting pregnant or are looking for a safe and natural contraceptive, then an ovulation computer is something you ought to look into. They’re not only easy to use, they help you track hormone levels and keep you informed about your fertile days.
What are fertility monitors?
As the name suggests, fertility monitors are used for tracking a woman’s fertile days in order to help her get pregnant. This type of device is ideal for women who plan on getting pregnant, but have difficulty doing so, as well as those who want to use such a device as a means of contraception.
Women have only 6 days per menstrual cycle in order to get pregnant, and each has their own fertility pattern, which means that finding the fertile window can be difficult. And to add to that, it’s quite normal for couples not to conceive during their first cycle - in fact, it may even take them 3 months of trying before getting pregnant - and that’s during fertile days. If there is no conceivement even after those three months, that still doesn’t mean that one or both partners are infertile, it might be due to “conception problems”. Infertility is only when one or both partners is sterile and there is no chance of conception. If both partners have passed their fertility tests, and there is still a conceiving problem, then either the ovulation prediction is off, or hormone levels are not in the norm and prevent ovulation and imbedding the egg in the uterus. These imbalances may even lead to miscarriages if progesterone levels are not maintained. Progesterone is required to maintain a pregnancy, and if levels are drastically low or are unregulated, a miscaridge may be inevitable.
As mentioned earlier, fertility monitors may also be used for contraceptive means. By tracking the fertile window with an ovulation computer every morning, women will know when they have their fertile days and will know to avoid unprotected sex during this time. This allows for couples to have intercourse without having to resort to other forms of contraception, which may go against their beliefs.
How do fertility monitors work?
Most monitors work by tracking two types of hormones, estrogen and luteinizing hormones (LH). Once ovulation begins to kick in, the women’s body temperature rises, as do estrogen levels, which drive the menstrual cycle. During this time, the luteinizing hormone increases as well, which triggers ovulation and releases an egg from one of the ovaries. This is the most fertile time of the cycle and readings should be done every morning to ensure a proper ovulation prediction. Your ovulation monitor will check a number of things to assess your peak fertility window and hormone levels, including basal body temperature, urine vaginal fluids, saliva or all of the above. Upon testing these areas, the monitor will display information pertaining to your hormone levels and fertility.
What are the kinds of fertility monitors?
The two most common types of fertility monitors are digital and wearable variants. Depending on the model, both types are easy to use, however more advanced options may require getting used to. Digital monitors have a screen that is easy to navigate and generates hormone level results taken from urine, vaginal fluids and saliva. There’s even a model designed specifically for women who experience irregular cycles.
Wearable fertility monitors on the other hand are used to measure your basal body temperature and some models may also have the option of tracking heart rate. These types of fertility monitors are often worn on the body and synchronize with your phone, allowing you to track your fertility levels wherever you may be. Although both variants provide accurate results, the most preferred option is the digital monitor, as it takes direct samples of bodily fluids, ensuring you spot-on results. You can find a variety of reliable monitors from our store, and prior to choosing one, speak with your doctor and ask which solution is right for you.
FAQ - Frequently asked questions
1. Which fertility computer is best for contraception? For getting pregnant?
Each monitor fulfils these roles, as they provide results on your fertile window. If you plan to get pregnant, intercourse would be advised, if not, avoid intercourse without other contraception.
2. I’ve been trying to get pregnant and I’ve been using the monitor to find my fertile window, but we still have trouble. Is the device broken, or is one of us infertile?
No, in fact, it can take around 3 cycles before you may actually get pregnant, even if you’re having intercourse during your fertile days. If you continue to have trouble, speak with your doctor, as there may be conception problems.
