Having a baby changes your life forever. Even before you actually become pregnant, the thought of your future child will consume you. You will find yourself reading pregnancy books and visiting websites that give you helpful hints about when to try to conceive, positions that will make it easier to conceive, and conception terms that will quickly become a regular part of your vocabulary. Today, there are a number of pregnancy test you can use to let you know you’re pregnant. There are also digital tests you can take before you even start trying to increase your chances of becoming pregnant.
Digital Fertility Monitors
You don’t have to struggle with infertility to want to use a fertility monitor. These digital fertility monitors are designed to help you understand when you are at your most fertile so that you can plan your baby making sessions around those dates. Knowing when you are fertile can help you increase your odds of getting pregnant. You’ll know exactly which days each month you are most likely to conceive, which takes a little of the guesswork and stress out of the conception process. Of course, you should still have fun with it. Fertility monitors can detect up to six days each month when you are most fertile. These digital devices are handheld and designed to help you track your fertility by storing the dates of your recent menstrual cycles. The monitor then does the math for you. It determines which two days you are most fertile each month as well as the five or so days your fertility level is higher than usual surrounding your ovulation days.
Digital Ovulation Tests
Everyone trying to have a baby knows that the only time you can get pregnant is when you ovulate. Ovulation is the point each month where your body releases an egg. When this egg is greeted by your partner’s sperm, it can become fertilized. You cannot become pregnant unless your partner’s sperm fertilizes your egg during the 12 to 24 hour period in which your body ovulates. This does not mean you have to time intercourse to the second you ovulate. Sperm can live inside your body for up to five days, which means you can start trying to conceive several days before you ovulate to maximize your chances of becoming pregnant.
Of course, it’s difficult to time sex around ovulation if you don’t know when that occurs each month. While most women ovulate approximately 14 days prior to the day their next period begins, it’s not an exact science. Every woman is different, meaning not all women ovulate at the same time each month. A digital ovulation test will help you determine changes in your body that indicate ovulation. Different than a fertility monitor, ovulation tests are more accurate in pinpointing ovulation as they detect your body’s rising temperature. This is an indicator that you are getting ready to ovulate.
A digital ovulation test is similar to a pregnancy test in that it uses your urine to detect certain hormones. Unlike a pregnancy test, however, the ovulation test is used to detect levels of lutenizing hormones (LH) in your urine. This hormone is released by your body shortly before you ovulate, giving you a pretty good idea of which day or two you will ovulate this particular month. Timing, as they say, is everything.
Digital Pregnancy Tests
Now that you’ve done all you can to get pregnant, it’s time to wait. Women hoping to have a baby often become impatient waiting the two or so weeks it takes for the day their period is supposed to arrive, hoping that it doesn’t. Most women know exactly when their period is going to arrive, or at least have a pretty good idea of when it should arrive each month. This makes it easy for you to know when to take a test. Did you know, however, that you can take a test as many as five days before you actually miss your period? Digital tests are more sensitive than other tests, which mean you can take a test sooner in hopes of finding out you are pregnant earlier.
Digital pregnancy test are often much easier to read than traditional tests. If you are like most women, you might have a difficult time reading a traditional test. Waiting for a second line to appear is frustrating and it’s not always easy to see that line. Some women can’t tell if a line appears or they are just seeing a faint line because they want so badly to become pregnant. While the general rule of thumb is that any secondary line, no matter how dark or light it appears, means you are pregnant, many women find it difficult to read these tests.
Digital pregnancy test are easier to read. In fact, they are so easy to read that all you have to do is know how to read to tell if you are pregnant or not. When you take a digital test, you will see one of two phrases appear in the digital screen. If you are pregnant, the word pregnant will appear. If you are not pregnant, the words not pregnant will appear. It’s difficult to misread a pregnancy test this obvious. Digital tests are 99 percent accurate when used with your first morning urine the day of your expected or missed period. Most digital tests can be used earlier to detect whether or not you are pregnant, but they will only work if your hormone levels have risen enough since conception to register on the test.
Digital planning to help you become pregnant is the easiest way to test for fertility, ovulation, and a baby. Whether you are hoping to get pregnant or you are in need of a test to tell you that you are not pregnant, going digital is the clear choice. You will have your easy-to-read answer in minutes.
