7 Tips to Boost Your Chances of Conceiving Naturally

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Getting pregnant seems like it would be easy — so easy that it could happen purely by accident. But for many couples trying to have a baby, actually conceiving turns out to be much more difficult than they realized.

Charting your cycles and determining your “fertility window” is crucial to conceiving naturally. In fact, if you don’t have sex during your fertility window — the relatively small amount of time when having sex can result in pregnancy — your chance of conceiving is zero percent.

In this article, Ethan Lynette explains seven tips to help you boost your chances of conceiving naturally. Read more here: http://parenting.allwomenstalk.com/tips-to-boost-your-chances-of-conceiving-naturally

Fairhaven Health Introduces BFP Brand Ovulation and Pregnancy Test Strips

Monday, October 7th, 2013

bfp-pregnancy-test-strips-16You can never have too many ovulation and pregnancy tests when you’re trying to conceive – but you could quickly deplete your bank account if you’re paying drugstore prices.

BFP Ovulation and Pregnancy Test Strips may provide the answer to this age-old dilemma. BFP tests provide you with the same type of accurate, high-quality tests used at your doctor’s office, but at a fraction of the price. In fact, you can buy BFP tests for as little as $0.56 each!

What is a “test strip” you ask? Unlike the midstream format tests sold at your local supermarket, test strips are designed to be dipped into collected urine. Simply collect your urine (a Dixie cup works great for this) and immerse the test strip up to the line marked on the tests. Your results will appear within minutes.

Manufactured in the United States, every order of BFP Test Strips ships with complete test instructions. Here’s to hoping you get your BFP (big fat positive) with BFP brand tests!

Now OvaGraph.com Can Interpret your Basal Temperature and Tell You When You Ovulate – for Free!

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Basal body temperature charting used to be a tedious exercise involving graph paper, a guidebook, and a whole lot of time, effort, and guesswork.

How far we’ve come! Now you can enter your basal temperature into Fairhaven Health’s own OvaGraph.com website – or the OvaGraph Mobile App – and our proprietary algorithm will interpret your results for you!

That’s right – OvaGraph will tell you on which day you ovulated, what your most fertile days were, and draw your coverline for you. If you have reason to believe the identified day is not correct, you can manually move a line to establish your “revised” ovulation date.

Fairhaven Health Introduces World’s Most Intelligent Basal Thermometer!

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

As you’re probably well aware, pinpointing when you ovulate each month is crucial when you’re trying to get pregnant. That’s because a woman is only fertile during the few days leading up to – and on – her ovulation date.

So how do you determine when you’ll ovulate? Methods of accomplishing this abound, but one of the most tried and true ones is to track your basal body temperature (BBT), your resting temperature, which is usually a bit lower than your “normal” temperature. The premise behind BBT charting is simple: during ovulation, your progesterone production increases, warming your body for a possible pregnancy. By charting your basal temperature each day, you can see that subtle thermal shift indicating that ovulation did indeed occur.

Basal thermometers are nothing new… they’ve been around for decades. But Fairhaven Health’s new ibasal Thermometer represents a quantum leap in BBT technology for trying to conceive purposes. Not only does it measure your basal temperature for you with extreme accuracy, it also algorithmically interprets that data for you – telling you precisely when ovulation occurred. No guesswork… no squinting at charts trying to spot a trend.

How accurate is the OvaCue Fertility Monitor?

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

If you’ve done any research at all on the OvaCue Fertility Monitor, you have probably read that the OvaCue has been clinically proven to be 98% accurate in monitoring ovulation (based on studies from the National Institute of Health). So, what exactly does that mean? To give these statistics a “real life” perspective, we decided to put the OvaCue up against the transvaginal ultrasound to help showcase its accuracy in a different way. Transvaginal ultrasounds are the most accurate way to pinpoint the exact date of ovulation, as it makes it possible to visually monitor the development of the dominant follicle until it is released from the ovary and into the fallopian tube.

Sarah, Director of Social Marketing and Customer Service at Fairhaven Health, uses the OvaCue daily and blogs about her experience at OvaCue.com. Some of you may know her as “FertilityChartingWithSarah” at OvaGraph.com, and others of you may know her from corresponding with her about OvaCue customer service questions. Sarah has always been interested in female reproductive health and ovulation prediction, so she jumped at the chance to monitor an entire cycle with a series of transvaginal ultrasounds to predict and confirm when ovulation took place. She continued to use the OvaCue Fertility Monitor (oral and vaginal sensor) daily while also going to a fertility clinic for regular transvaginal ultrasounds. What did she find? Read the results here!
