If you’ve been trying for another baby for a while with little success, then you may start to look at ways to help you get pregnant. The Clearblue fertility monitor describes itself as being the most advanced home method to maximise your chances of conceiving so it’s got to be worth a shot right.
First of all, you should bear in mind that whilst this monitor will give you the best chance you have of pinpointing when you are ovulating and the peak and high times of fertility in your cycle, it isn’t a magic box; those who think that they may have underlying medical reasons as to why achieving conception may be difficult should consult a GP for advice.
When you receive the monitor, you can’t use it until the first day of your next cycle (the day you get your period). When this happens, turn the monitor on and set the ‘m’ button. You can then sit back and wait as the monitor counts the days and then lets you know that it needs some further information about your hormone surges by requesting that you perform a urine test. On the days when the monitor indicates that you should take a test, you should do this with your first morning urine (as it normally contains the most concentrated levels of hormones) and then insert the urine stick into the monitor, where it will flash for around 5 minutes before asking you to remove (and throw away) the urine stick before telling you your fertile status.
Unlike many other ovulation predictor kits, the Clearblue fertility monitor manages to inform you of up to 6 fertile days, which is extremely handy, given that a man’s sperm can survive in your body for several days. This gives you the maximum chance of achieving conception.
Basically, this monitor is an excellent tool and is easy to use. You just set it and forget about it until it asks you to perform a urine test. It then responds by pinpointing the days that you should have sex on. If you’ve been trying for a baby for a while, then you should definitely give this a go. Amazon users rate it 4.5 out of 5!
