Maybe Baby Saliva Fertility Tester
PRINCIPLE OF THE TEST
The female fertility period occurs once during the monthly menstrual cycle. The ovum (egg) matures in approximately the mid- dle of the cycle, about 14 days prior to the onset of menstruation.
During a woman’s menstrual cycle, there are only about 3 days when her egg is available for fertilisation. Sperm can survive up to 72 hours (3 days) in the vagina and uterus, so if sexual intercourse occurs up to 3 days before a woman is fertile, she can still become pregnant.
Thus, there are about 6 days per month (3 days prior to fertility and 3 days of fertility) that a woman can conceive.Calculation of this fertile period using traditional methods can be quite inaccurate, especially in the case of women with irregular cycles. For couples wanting children, or concerned with family planning, the results can be frustrating at best.
Consequently, the use of tests based on the specific biological and hormonal phenomena occurring naturally in the female body during this fertility period can be useful in helping to maximize the chances of successful fertilization and resultant pregnancy. Conversely, they can help to minimize the possibility of an unwanted pregnancy. Obviously by abstaining from intercourse during this fertility period, the possibility of pregnancy is greatly reduced.
Fortunately, specific biological changes in the female body can indicate fertile and infertile periods. Often used is the traditional curve of the basal body temperature. In the first half of the cycle, shortly after the beginning of the menstrual period, the basal temperature is low. After the egg is released, the temperature rises. While this method has been used for years, it requires accurate and specific record keeping and results are often disappointing.
More specific is testing urine samples for the peaking of production of the female LH hormone.
Additionally, just prior to ovulation, salts (or electrolytes) increase dramatically in body fluids (e.g. saliva and cervical mucus) along with the hormone estrogen.
Consequently, being able to identify this increase in salts (electrolytes) is a valid method for identifying the onset of ovulation. It has been clinically and scientifically observed that, during the fertile period, a sample of normal female saliva or cervical mucus, when dried and examined under a microscope, contains many structures resembling ferns. These fern structures are actually dried salt or electrolyte crystals present as a result of the electrolyte build up prior to and during ovulation. On all other days of the female cycle only shapeless, dotted structures can be seen.
A miniature microscope designed specifically to aid in the indication of the fertility period is now available. Any woman can now easily check her fertility cycle anytime, any- where without the need for basal charting or urine samples.Saliva is the most accessible body fluid and easiest to obtain.
There is no need for complicated blood or urine tests. “Fern” structuring starts 3-4 days before ovulation and ceases 2-3 after ovulation. The microscope is a scientific instrument with a precision 52X power magnification lens that, with proper care, can be discreetly used over and over again.
