Track Your Ovulation Period With the New Fertility Detecting Gadget

BLOOM is an elegant, self-inserted temperature sensor that is able to detect the subtle changes that occur before ovulation that other methods are unable to detect, then sends an alert to her smartphone when she is most fertile.

Prima-Temp, a company out of Boulder, Colorado, will be showing off its brand new BLOOM body temperature fertility device at CES this week.

The ring is self-inserted into the vagina from where core body temperature measurements are sent wirelessly to a paired smartphone.

In women, ovulation causes an increase of one-half to one degree Fahrenheit in basal body temperature (BBT). Monitoring of BBTs is one way of estimating the day of ovulation.

Tracking ovulation through fertility awareness procedures is the best way to identify the appropriate time to get pregnant.

The accompanying app is used to precisely track temperature trends that are correlated to when women are most fertile.

There's no need to manually record readings and having the device inside during sleep can provide coverage that would be difficult to obtain otherwise.

The app will notify the woman when the sensor detects a trend that points to an open fertility window.
