Planning a Pregnancy with Baby-Comp
Baby-Comp performs all the same tasks as Lady-Comp but has an added pregnancy planning level. This makes Baby-Comp a complete package allowing you to either plan a pregnancy or prevent one.
Baby-Comp and Infertility
How can a device like Baby-Comp help in cases of infertility? First and most importantly, it indicates the best possible date for conception when ovulation occurs. Baby-Comp does this by closely monitoring your cycle on a daily basis. You provide Baby-Comp with the information it requires by means of simple input. This includes daily (but time flexible) BBT measurements and menstruation dates. By analyzing this information, Baby-Comp is able to detect ovulation and calculate in advance your best opportunity for conceiving.
Baby-Comp makes it possible to recognize problems caused by hormone imbalance or irregular cycles. Should a cycle disturbance or irregularity exist, Baby-Comp will make this known through it's pattern of fertility indication; this can be confirmed by a print out. Temperature patterns can often assist in indicating more specific causes of any irregularity. (If possible, you should try to correct any known cycle irregularities prior to using Baby-Comp, so as to optimize its use.) If you are not sure if you ovulate regularly or do not know where in your cycle you ovulate, then you should use Baby-Comp right away to collect data about your cycle.Am I Infertile? What Can I do? What if I have had a miscarriage in the past?
Childlessness in couples who want to have a family is most frequently not caused by complete infertility but rather by a reduced level of fertility, such as caused by a hormone imbalance. Couples only realize they have problems conceiving when they try to have a child. It is quite normal for a couple not to conceive in the first cycle; on average, a couple with healthy fertility requires three months to initiate pregnancy--even when pinpointing fertile days.
It is only if you have been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for more than six months that one can talk about "conception problems", and even then this is not considered infertility. True infertility only exists when one partner is sterile. Involuntary reproductive sterility is often associated with damage to the individuals reproductive cells caused while still a fetus in the womb, usually by toxins. Such toxins do not harm the mother but are very dangerous to the fetus and its proper development. Chemical products such as household cleaners and nail polish can harm a fetus' reproductive development. When mature, females may not produce the follicular activity which leads to the releasing of the egg, and males may not produce sperm cells. If you have been tested for these conditions and the test results were negative--in other words, you are fertile--then your difficulties in conceiving may be related to either a) not accurately pinpointing your day of ovulation; or b) a hormonal imbalance that does not allow you to ovulate or allow the egg to imbed or remain imbedded in the uterus.
Hormone imbalance can cause ovulation to cease and can also lead to miscarriage. An imbalance that leads to miscarriage is most often caused by a "luteul phase failure". The luteul phase of your cycle is the back half of the cycle, which extends from the time of ovulation to the time of menstruation. During this part of the cycle, progesterone generally increases and acts as a balancing hormone. During a pregnancy, sufficient levels of natural progesterone are required to maintain a pregnancy. If progesterone levels drop or are not maintained, a pregnancy may end in miscarriage.
