Timing intercourse with ovulation is one of the key steps to successful conception.
The Babystart® Ovulation microscope is a personal ovulation microscope that allows you to predict ovulation – the most fertile time in your menstrual cycle – to indicate the best time to have intercourse when planning a pregnancy.
When a woman is about to ovulate, her saliva begins to form a distinct, fern-like pattern due to an increase in hormone levels. This ‘ferning’ pattern (which you can see through the babystart microscope) is usually most noticeable around the time of ovulation. This pattern can occur from around 2 days before ovulation to 2 days after ovulation, allowing you to predict ovulation and peak fertility.
Using the microscope is easy: just add a drop of saliva to the lens and allow the sample to dry. After around five minutes, view the sample through the microscope lens. Press the LED light button and focus by turning the eyepiece of the microscope. If you are ovulating or about to ovulate, a ferning, crystal-like pattern can be viewed.
Directions for use
Step 1: Remove the black viewfinder lens from the body of the microscope. To do this, pull the entire viewfinder out. You should be able to see and touch the light bulb inside the housing cylinder. The eyepiece or rotating part of the viewfinder should not be unscrewed.
Step 2: Apply the saliva sample to the flat internal glass surface of the viewfinder. Apply a small amount from a clean finger or lightly dab the glass surface with your tongue. Do not apply too much saliva onto the lens, as it will take longer to dry. Ensure that the saliva sample is completely dry before testing. Try to avoid creating any air bubbles.
Step 3: Replace the viewfinder lens into the body of the babystart® Ovulation microscope.
Step 4: View the sample. Ensure you place your eye right up to the viewfinder, as if you were looking through a telescope. This will enable you to effectively examine the result. Look into the lens and push the LED button while bringing it close to the eye (remember to remove eye glasses). Adjust the eyepiece to focus and push the light button to observe results.
Step 5: Clean the lens after every use with a clean paper towel or lens cleaner.
