What are Saliva-Based Fertility Trackers?

When it comes to conceiving there are a number of options available to you to help track your fertility to ensure that you actively try to conceive at optimum moments. One such option is a saliva-based fertility tracker that allows you to use your saliva to quickly and efficiently track your body’s fertile times. Ovulation is different for everyone so using a device like saliva-based fertility trackers can help you to chart and determine when your body is most fertile to help maximize the chances of getting pregnant quicker.

How does it work?

In simple terms, the tracker is a non-electric microscope that is used to view saliva at a microscopic level to determine whether your body has reached a maximum fertile state or not. To use it you need to simply add a drop of your saliva to the lens and let it dry, allowing the device to then view the dried results and determine fertility.

What to look for

It’s meant to be easy enough for your average person to be able to discern the following.

If you are ovulating you will see a fern-like crystallized pattern that is very prevalent throughout the sample, indicating that your body is currently fertile and at the perfect moment to actively try to conceive.

If there is light “ferning”, i.e crystallized portions with clear empty spots throughout, that means you are in a transitional stage and should begin ovulating within about 3-4 days.

If you are not ovulating, the saliva sample won’t have any “ferning” and you are more than likely at least a week away from your ovulation cycle.

What are the benefits?

Many women chose to use saliva-based fertility trackers because they allow a clean, safe and easy option to help determine fertility and to help track their body’s fertility cycle. Because the tracker works off saliva there is no need to use unsanitary urine to determine fertility which beyond the undesirable aspect of it, can be a messy endeavor. Saliva fertility trackers are proven to be 98% effective so you can be assured that they are working to help you get optimum results when you need them. Best yet, many saliva-based fertility trackers are small and relatively discreet so that you can easily test your fertility anywhere and at any time.

Tips for using saliva-based fertility trackers

Take advantage of these tips for the best results using a saliva-based fertility tracker.

It is best to use them every day as this helps you create a baseline for your fertility cycle through charting so that you are more aware and prepare for ovulation.

Test first thing in the morning before your normal hygiene routine or breakfast as this can affect the results of the test.

If you have to test later in the day wait at least a few hours after eating, drinking or brushing to ensure correct results.
