Conception can only take place during a woman fertile window. The person needs to learn of their fertility window which is usually determined by understanding one’s menstrual cycle. This can be difficult to know for ladies as that is an internal process that takes place within the body and thus it is not possible to guess if it has taken place or not. The major assumptions people make is that ovulation takes place two weeks after one has had their period. This assumption may not always hold since the menstrual process differs with individuals thus the time in which they ovulate is quite different.
There are different methods in which one can use to assess if they are ovulating or not. Test strips is the fore methods which one can use whereby they measure the presence of certain hormones in urine thus indicating id one is ovulating or not. This method can be considered in the long haul since one needs to keep buying the test strips each time they need to measure their fertility levels. There is a devise that works in a similar manner but one that can be reused in a bit to increase its level functionality and the devise is battery powered to support this reusability. This method also test for the presence of hormones but this time it tests saliva.
The third option is one that embraces the use of technology in its functionality. This monitor come along with a thermometer which keeps track of basal body temperatures to predict when one is ovulating. The monitor requires to have the details of the person such as the height, age and weight of a person and then the days when they are on their period for it to learn one’s cycle and then predict with accuracy when one is ovulating. The fact that the monitor makes use of a person’s individual data to make the predictions explains the accuracy involved.
This fertility monitor can be used for other purposes besides just about fertility. The methods can be used as a birth control methods since it can also predict when one cannot conceive. This method can thus be considered to be a family planning technique though, its unique in that it doesn’t need to alter one’s hormones. The success rate of this natural method is also equally high which gives it and an advantage over artificial contraceptives. The methods can also be used a means of monitoring ones gynecological health. The monitor can be used for extended periods of time which justifies its initial cost.
