The ibasal is much more than just a basal thermometer –
it’s an FDA-approved fertility monitor that is able to calculate your
precise ovulation date and peak fertile days based on your daily
temperatures and a variety of other fertility indicators. The ibasal
works for women with irregular cycles as well as regular ones, and it
continues to learn your body’s unique patterns month after month in
order to provide exceptionally accurate results.
To begin, simply set the time and date in the ibasal and
set the alarm. The alarm will sound the next morning and each morning
throughout your cycle, reminding you to take your BBT and ensuring
reading consistency from one day to the next. The ibasal will measure
and display your temperature to the 1/100 th of a degree (e.g. 97.41 F),
show your cycle day, and populate a graph of your previous 10 readings
on the LCD screen. This graph of readings allows you to easily see the
shift in temperature that follows ovulation.
After collecting and storing your BBT readings, the
ibasal will interpret this information to produce your own customized
fertility prediction, allowing you to time intercourse in advance of
ovulation for the best chance of conceiving in each cycle.
The ibasal actually interprets your data for you to tell you
when you will ovulate and when you’re most fertile. Other data points
considered by the ibasal algorithm include bleeding, cramping, cervical
mucus consistency, and intercourse dates. The ibasal can even tell you
when your results indicate a possible pregnancy!
