Fertility Monitor Top-Sellers

The top names in the fertility monitor industry include OV Watch, OvaCure, Lady Comp/Baby Comp, and ClearBlue Easy Fertility Monitor. Although each system measures your fertility level in a different way, each monitor is designed to track your hormone levels over the course of the month and on each day of your menstrual cycle. The ability to predict your ovulation date up to a full week in advance (even for women with an irregular cycle) makes fertility monitors the ideal pregnancy tests.

How Fertility Monitors Work

The basic purpose of a fertility monitor is the same across all brands of these modern-day pregnancy tools. A fertility monitor helps couples trying to get pregnant or couples who have had difficulty conceiving accurately and effortlessly measure a woman's fertility over the course of her monthly cycle. Each device reads and displays this information; however how the various fertility tests work varies from brand to brand.

Urine-Based Fertility Monitors

One type of electric fertility monitor known as the ClearBlue Easy Fertility Monitor - popular amongst thousands of women across the nation - uses urine to determine a woman's daily fertility level. On certain days of the month leading up to your period, the fertility monitor will direct you to urinate on a test stick. Mere minutes after you place the test stick in the ovulation monitor you receive an up-to-the-minute status report concerning your fertility level that day.

Perspiration-Based Fertility Monitors

The OV Watch electronic monitor uses your perspiration to update you on your fertility status. You actually wear this monitor like a watch, which has a sensing pad on the back that needs to be replaced every month (after each menstrual cycle).

Saliva-Based Fertility Monitors

Saliva-based monitors, such as the OvaCue Fertility Monitoring System, are considered the best of the best. By placing a sensor under the tongue, you receive an accurate report on when you are most fertile and most likely to conceive. Saliva-based monitors work by reading changes in a woman's electrolyte levels, which in turn are caused by increases in the estrogen hormone. These high-tech devices are said to be superior to other types of fertility monitors for the following reasons:

•- Saliva-based monitors are FDA approved

•- Saliva-based monitors are highly sterile

•- Saliva-based monitors are easy/convenient to use (involving a simple sensor placed under the tongue for a few seconds as opposed to the giving of a urine sample or strapping a device to one's body)

•- Saliva-based monitors boast a 98% accuracy rate, surpassing the precision of all other monitors

•- Saliva-based monitors come with multi-language capacities (currently available in English, Chinese, and Spanish)

•- Saliva-based monitors can predict ovulation up to a full seven days in advance

•- The OvaCue offers an optional vaginal sensor, allowing you to test your cervix fluids as another means of determining when you will ovulate and be able to conceive

•- Saliva-based monitors come in an all-inclusive kit that includes a manual, a convenient carrying case, and the sensor

If you are tired of being on constant "fertility watch," have an irregular menstrual cycle, don't quite understand how the fertility cycle words, or are looking for an easier, more accurate way of determining when your best window of opportunity is to get pregnant, it might be well worth your while to invest in an electronic fertility monitor. Although prices range between $100 and $800 for one of these modern-day pregnancy aids, they are well worth their value in getting job done.
