Maybe Baby Ovulation Saliva Tester
Maybe Baby Easy Ovulation Tester is an easy to use, reusable mini-microscope that helps you identify your most fertile days and the ideal time to conceive.
When to use:
Maybe Baby® Easy Ovulation Tester is a mini-microscope that shows the link between oestrogen and the salt levels in your saliva. As ovulation approaches, your oestrogen levels increase and this increases the salinity (salt levels) of your saliva.
When dried saliva is viewed under a microscope, the crystallised patterns that are formed by increased salt levels are different from patterns which form when salt (and oestrogen) levels are low.
By monitoring your saliva everyday and comparing the image of your dried saliva in the viewfinder, you can determine your most fertile days.
- At the beginning of your cycle oestrogen levels are low and your Maybe Baby Easy Ovulation Tester will show a pattern of pebbles or dots.
- As you approach ovulation oestrogen levels begin to rise and a transitional pattern of ferns and pebbles/dots will be visible.
- Around ovulation, oestrogen levels peak and a distinctive ‘fern’ pattern will be visible.
- After ovulation, as oestrogen levels fall, a transitional pattern or a pattern of pebbles/dots will be visible again.
Please ensure that you have not eaten or drunk anything for at least 3 hours before using the Maybe Baby Easy Ovulation Tester as the saliva sample needs to be free of contaminants. Food, drinks, toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum and smoking will interfere with the results. Drinking water will not affect the results.
