Hello & Happy Sunday!
As a clinical nutritionist and chef I hit the ground running for my career as soon as I finished graduate school. Looking back I felt as though my days of baby planning were far down the road. So far that it wasn’t even in my forefront.
However, today I’m 33, newly married, and that’s our next chapter!
From adolescence we always had the picture painted that pregnancy is bound to happen if one doesn’t take appropriate measures. As someone who has been living it the past 6 months, it’s safe to say that for the majority of women, pregnancy is just not that easy.
In order to conceive everything has to be right. The month, the day, the 24hr period, your stress levels, body temperature, and the list goes on. At this point I’ve read a myriad of discussion forums and studies that indicate a higher chance of conceiving, and there are countless tips and tricks people have used in addition to all of the above. The lists go on and on lol.
For women in their 30’s, this exciting time can easily become one ridden with anxiety, exhaustion, and for many, they may just lose hope.
What’s wonderful about today is that there are many tools to help you gauge your personal ovulation window to increase your odds of conception. There are many strips, apps, and now at theome testing kits that will clearly indicate whether you’re ovulating, close to ovulating, or far from ovulating.
That being said, the new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System can take the leg work out of predicting personal fertile days to make the experience seamless and stress free. for me personally, my menstruations have never been consistent and it wasn’t until recently trying to conceive that I began to track and monitor them. I could balance 20 college credits, working out, running Eat Drink Shrink, but..
I was always the woman, who never knew when it was coming, and never prepared lol.
When I had the opportunity to test the new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System I was beyond elated. It not only comes with a device that gives you a clear reading versus test strips which are subject to interpretation, but it also has connectivity to a smartphone and syncs the data with an app to track and store all your fertile history in one place. It also has the ability to set personalized reminders and will alert you when you need to start testing.
If it sounds complex, believe me, I get you. Even with a masters degree and considering myself to be tech savvy, I was initially confused about using the device. I sadly was inserting the test strips backwards, because it seemed to make the most sense. So if that happens to you, never fear, you’re not alone lol.
To start, you simply insert a test stick into the holder. In order to connect the device to your phone you simply download the app and have your Bluetooth turned on.
After testing your results will then be synced to the app, providing your Bluetooth is on and the app is open.
The kit comes with the one reusable device holder, one wake-up stick, and 25 test strips that should last at least 2 months. You can note the change in your cycles, time of intimacy, and even set personalized reminders when to test. The new system helps women understand their fertility by allowing them to compare multiple cycles and share this information with a healthcare professional. – If they want!
All in all I was really pleased with test system. If you experience any issues they provide a helpline to help resolve problems with using the system. For those seeking a more stress free experience with conceiving, pairing the accuracy of a Clearblue® Ovulation Test, now with the convenience of an app, the new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System maximizes chances of getting pregnant in a way like never before. While I experienced issues with my device after a few months of usage, the company has a 24hr hotline to resolve these problems if they happen to arise and will provide a replacement if necessary.
We are currently still trying and thanks to Clearblue®, my anxiety of the process is significantly reduced!
