What is the Cyclotest Lady Basal Thermometer?
The Cyclotest Lady Basal Thermometer is used to determine when ovulation will occur. Right after women ovulate, their basal body temperature (measured in the morning upon waking) increases by 0.2 to 0.5 degrees Celsius. Charting your basal body temperature for a number of months allows you to understand your fertility pattern. This information can help you predict your next ovulation.
What is it used for?
Predicting ovulation based on charting changes in body temperature is a commonly used contraceptive method. Sexual intercourse during or immediately after ovulation increases the chance of pregnancy. If you do not want to fall pregnant, you should avoid having unprotected sex during this time. This method of contraception is especially useful if you do not want to use or cannot tolerate birth control pills or other forms of contraception such as condoms, and is only reliable when measurements and temperature chartings are carried out accurately.
The Cyclotest Lady Basal Thermometer can also be used for natural family planning. In this case, you can use the temperature charts to see when is the best time to have sex in order to become pregnant.
