Hi All. My second “peak fertility” period is coming around since I’ve begun the Pregnancy Miracle, so Mark and I have been a bit preoccupied. Instead of putting up some half hearted post or letting the blog sit empty for even longer, I’ve asked my dear friend Joanna, who first introduced me to Pregnancy Miracle, to do a guest post comparing fertility monitors. This is a question that a lot of my readers have asked about, and Joanna’s wisdom on this subject is second to none.
So, with no further ado, Joanna.
Angie asked me to write an article comparing the top fertility monitors because I personally used several before I got pregnant. Since then, I’ve coached numerous women into conception using fertility monitors as well. In my mind, there are really only 3 fertility monitors that are even worth talking about. However, before I jump into it, let’s discuss why fertility monitors are so important.
Fertility Monitors – Why Bother?
Simple. As you’ve read many times in this blog, timing is everything (or at least a huge piece of the Pregnancy Miracle). Fertility monitors take the guess work and human error out of manual fertility planning techniques. Like many women, I spent several months trying to track my own fertility indicators, until I simply got sick and tired of being thrown off by inaccurate thermometer readings or a slight menstrual irregularity. It was hopeless. I needed a better solution.
My research led me to the world of fertility monitors, which I am now a diehard advocate for. However, be careful what you buy, you’ll get exactly what you pay for.
With that said, here are the top 3 fertility monitors you may want to consider.
The Rolls Royce of fertility monitors. Nothing compares. Period. If you’re serious about getting pregnant, you should have bought it yesterday.
- Best fertility monitor. Hands down.
- Unrivaled accuracy. In clinical tests involving over 600 physicians, the Baby Comp monitor has been proven to predict fertility periods more accurately than any other product on the market.
- Incredible Insights. Unlike other monitors which are easily thrown off by hormonal irregularities or slight temperature fluctuations, Baby Comp actually recognizes these events and informs you.
- Analyzes up to 5 months of data. This is truly unbelievable. Other product will store 1.5 months at best. The baby comp is the only product that will store and report up to 5 months of data, giving you superior insights and understanding of your body.
- Clean and Convenient. No urine samples or other invasive procedures. No additional pieces, parts or add-ons. Just 1 cute, easy to carry unit that ready to go out of the box.
- Easy-peasy. You don’t need you doctor to set it up. You don’t need to be a tech wiz. It couldn’t be any simpler.
- Amazing Support. Having trouble understanding your reports? No problem, call the manufacturer and they will guide you through and even offer suggestions.
- Allows you to plan gender! When I first saw this on the package, I thought, “yeah, right.” But this is real. I’ve seen the Baby-Comp gender planner work time and time again.
- Cost (?) I, like many others, was initially surprised by the price of the Baby Comp. However, after I took into consideration how much I had already spent on ineffective fertility drugs and pregnancy tests, I decided this was a worthwhile investment. I’m glad I did because I got pregnant 3 months later. Would you rather save a few bucks and remain frustrated, or are you ready to get pregnant? If you chose the latter, then I can’t recommend the Baby Comp enough.
Lady Comp is Baby Comp’s little sister with a few less features. Nonetheless, Lady Comp contains the exact same fertility prediction capabilities as Baby Comp. It is missing some of the added TTC-specific features, but it’s also a bit more modestly priced and I’ve seen it help almost as many women as Baby Comp.
If money is a concern, Lady Comp is the best bang for your buck.
- Best bang for your buck.
- Predicts fertility just as well as Baby Comp.
- Uses the same clean, non-invasive testing methods.
- Lasts for years.
- No gender planning.
- Less hormonal insights. The Lady Comp still comprehends fluctuations throughout the fertility cycle, it just doesn’t report them the same way.
These are probably the most common fertility monitors on the market because they’re relatively cheap, but from my experience, they usually lead to frustration rather than pregnancy. Although I’ve met many women that have used them, I’ve never met one who has been thrilled. Its better than nothing, but not in the same ballpark as the Ladycomp and Babycomp.
- Lots of peeing sticks. While it may be ok once in a while for a pregnancy test, peeing on sticks every day isn’t my idea of a good or clean time.
- Easily thrown off. Having an irregular cycle? Say goodbye to the accuracy of your results.
- No sensitivity to hormonal fluctuations. The Clearblue measures a few molecules in your urine and nothing more. However, as you already know, plenty of other variables can affect your fertility and the Clearblue is blind to all of them.
- No BBT measurement/tracking.
- Makes predictions based on little data.
As you can tell, I am a strong proponent of the Lady Comp and Baby Comp fertility monitors and I have seen them work time and time again.
If you want to get pregnant fast, you know what you have to do.
Don’t skimp on your future, get a fertility monitor.
