My husband and I have been trying to conceive for quite sometime now. When something new comes along, I am always happy to try it! When trying to have a baby, some of use use urine ovulation tests. They can become quite expensive as time goes by. Did you know that you can use your saliva to tell if you are in your fertile period or not? Have you heard of OvaTel? OvaTel is a mini microscope designed to allow a woman to see if or when she is fertile. This fertility monitor uses saliva instead of urine to determine when you are close to ovulation.
Included is your cover, your base, your lens, and your saliva applicator. See that little dot in the center above? You take your finger and scoop it under your tounge and take the applicator stick and place your saliva on the hole. Let dry 30 minutes and place it toward the light and look through it to see the pattern.
It is pretty simple how it works actually. You can use it over and over again. No batteries, no issues! It is also 98% accurate. It is so small and discreet that you can take it in your bag to work or anywhere! Check out these ferning photos to see what the ferning will look like through your cycle. Something to remember- strogen peaks approximately 24-48 hours prior to ovulation, when ferning occurs.
I think this is so beat because it is a more accurate way of knowing your cycle. An even more accurate way (that I will try next cycle again) is temping. I received this cool chart that I am going to make copies of and 5 pregnancy tests with the OvaTel!
To see results, start on day 1 of your cycle. You need to use it for at least 20 days. The saliva must air dry to crystallize. Using artificial dryers such as fans or blow-dryers will over dry your sample and you will not get crystallization. I am going to be updating this post with my results so that you can see for yourself on my end how it works. I will show 3 different photos, the first starting on day 1. Visit OvaTel on their website to learn more about the product. The retail cost for it is only $27.95. Be sure to visit OvaTel on their social media to stay up to date with the latest! Like this post?
