Want To Get Pregnant? There’s An App For That…

Myth busting: 5 old wives’ tales about conceiving

Forget using your diary to keep track of your most fertile days – if these success rates are anything to go by, you should be downloading an app to help boost your chances of conceiving

More than 200,000 women have used apps on their phones to help them get pregnant, new research shows.

The statistics have been shared by two top fertility apps – Ovia and Glow. Ovia, which launched in June 2012 has already been downloaded around one million times and has helped approximately 175,000 women get pregnant. Reports from the app also show that it’s currently helping over 20,000 women a month conceive a baby.

And Glow, which was created just over a year ago, claims to have helped 25,000 women have a baby.

But while the Glow and Ovia apps let you record data and will let you know if things are normal or not (Ovia will suggest you get tested for anaemia if you report that you’re even more tired than normal), a new fertility app maker called Kindara has taken things to a whole new level…

Rather than asking you to manually enter data into an app, it’s set to launch a basal body temperature thermometer called Wink. You’ll need to take your basal body temperature at the same time every morning on the Wink thermometer, which will then sync the data with your phone through the Kindara app. So you can find out if you’re having a fertile day as soon as you wake up in the morning.

Once you’re pregnant, you can even download apps to time your contractions, keep track of your fitness levels, diet plan and even your baby’s heartbeat.

    I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with her medicine, i collected her contact an explain my situation to her she prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe I by her. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2014. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2016, thank you mama , this is her email contact if you require her help nativeiyabasira@yahoo.com
