Increase your chances of getting pregnant – naturally
By: Lorena Tonarelli for Media Planet
If you are trying to have a baby and are not getting pregnant, it doesn’t mean you are infertile. Most likely, you are trying to conceive on the wrong days of your cycle. You need something that tells you when you can conceive. That is what a fertility monitor does, maximising your chances of having a child naturally with the ovulation method.
Mrs Kerimi had been trying to get pregnant for four years. She decided to use Valley Electronics’ Baby-Comp® – a small computerised monitor that can identify the days of the month in which a woman is more likely to conceive.
“I became pregnant with a baby boy within just four months,” says Mrs Kerimi. “Baby-Comp® was very easy to use. I have already given it to a friend, who is trying to have a child.”
How does it all work?
Ovulation is the release of a mature egg from a woman’s ovary, usually half way through the menstrual cycle. The egg travels down a fallopian tube to the uterus, ready to be fertilised by a sperm. This is when a woman is highly fertile.
Usually there are only six days in every cycle when a woman can get pregnant: five days before ovulation as sperm can live 3 to 5 days in the woman’s body and on the day she ovulates. The ovulation period lasts 24 to 48 hours (even shorter period for women in their 40s) and accompanied by a slight but constant rise in body temperature. Fertility monitors can detect these variations and predict, with extreme precision, when a woman has the highest chances of getting pregnant.
Over 99 percent accurate
Valley Electronics’ fertility monitors, Lady-Comp® and Baby-Comp®, measure your oral temperature and then use a built-in intelligent algorithm to compare this information with that from about 700,000 cycles of other women. This allows to identify your fertile days with a clinically proven accuracy of 99.34 percent. Determining the exact window of fertility is important for all women, but is particularly so for those in their 40s, whose mature eggs last less than in younger women.
Both fertility monitors can also tell you if you are pregnant, detect factors such as hormonal imbalances or yellow body (the corpus luteum) dysfunction. Problems with the yellow body cause difficulties getting pregnant as well as staying pregnant (miscarriage). The embryo cannot survive without a properly functioning yellow body. Fertility monitors like Baby-Comp® detect those factors causing you fertility problems, and store data about the last 180 to 250 days of your cycle that your gynaecologist can use for diagnostic purposes.
Luke Manczak, managing director of the only authorised distributor of Baby-Comp® and Lady-Comp® in the UK and Ireland says: “Our fertility monitors are very popular in the US and Europe, especially in Germany where they were developed by a team of gynaecologists, software specialists and electronic experts. The electronic brain, containing knowledge about fertility, is manufactured by leading suppliers in Germany where the device is also assembled. The project was also supported by the Innovation Fund and the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology. This is because research shows that fertility monitors are effective at helping women get pregnant in a natural way, and at minimising the need for complex, invasive, expensive medical procedures such as hormonal therapy, artificial insemination including in vitro, which result in many discarded human embryos (from many fertilised eggs only one is implanted). A recent survey found that 75 percent of women who couldn’t have children were able to conceive with the help of Baby-Comp®.”
Effective natural birth control
“Fertility monitors also work perfectly well for natural family planning; allowing women to avoid invasive coils or pills, which studies have shown carry risk of abortion for all women taking the pills or using coils, by their anti-nidation mechanism, which doesn’t allow to attach the newly conceived embryo to the mother’s uterine lining,” explains Mr Manczak. “Unfortunately, many women are not given information by their doctors about anti-implantation mechanism and the risks they are exposed to, and the fact that these can be eliminated with a natural family planning approach such as the ovulation method.”
