When you hear the alarm, this is to remind you to place the thermometer under the tongue. In less than a minute, you will have a response.
- A red light means you are fertile

Safe alternative to birth control pills
These intelligent monitors are a safe and trustworthy option for any women who are concerned about or sensitive to the use of hormonal birth control.

Some fertility monitors are extra smart as they can automatically inform you if you are pregnant as well as the due date. Their added benefit is to assist those women who are trying to become pregnant by giving details of when is the best time to try to conceive.

Obviously, fertility monitors are for birth control only and will not be able to protect you from any sexually transmitted diseases. You would need to to use other forms of protection for this. For extra information, you can try reading the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler as this makes a good companion when using the fertility monitor.
