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.

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.
