Many women who are trying to conceive turn to tracking ovulation as a means of predicting their most fertile time. Charting Basal Body Temperature (BBT) is one of the more common and most accurate ways of predicting ovulation.
Basal Body Temperature (BBT) is the base temperature of your body after a period of rest. A woman charting her BBT would do so first thing in the morning after getting a minimum of four hours of sleep. She would then record her temperatures on a graph and watch for a slight increase of 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit, which would suggest she is ovulating. After a few months of charting BBT, a woman will notice a pattern in her menstrual cycles and be able to predict the time of month at which she ovulates.
Women have been waiting a long time for a more aesthetically pleasing charting site for the fertility awareness method. Ova Ova, launched in February by Amanda Kohler (pictured), 24, and her husband Kevin, 29, has stepped into the gap left by an ages-old birth control method in need of a technology update. For $36 a year, a woman can track her fertility on a site that's easy to interact with and easy on the eyes. Omaha branding agency GoodTwin Design is responsible for Ova Ova's look.
