Ovulation Detection Methods

Fertility Monitors

Fertility monitors are complex electronic machines that look at several indicators to analyze data and help a woman gauge her level of fertility at any given time in her cycle, not only during her time of ovulation.

While the most widely-used fertility monitors are more expensive than other ovulation prediction tools, proponents of these re-usable devices say that money is saved in the long run, since many women do not get pregnant in their first few months of trying to conceive.

One extremely popular device, the ClearBlue Fertility Monitor is designed to identify all of your fertile days, which typically can be up to 6 each menstrual cycle, including pinpointing your 2 peak fertile days, thereby providing a larger window of fertile opportunity.

Fertility monitors generally guide the user as to when to test, based not only on the initial information input into the machine's computer, but also on any personal patterns detected by previous uses of the monitor.

Successful users of these monitors may be interested to know that used fertility monitors are sometimes re-sellable via online auction or other similar services.
