This is going to be a game changer for TTC
I’m so excited about the Inito Fertility Monitor! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for nearly 6 years. Two years ago, we finally got all the proper testing. But the problem is that my hormone levels are rarely where they need to be. Typically, I could only test LH at home. The rest If have to go into the doctor for.Now, I can test my estrogen, LH, FSH, and progesterone - all from home. This means no guessing as to when I’m the most fertile. It even tells you when you have high fertility or low fertility days. By using this fertility device, it also means saving on the doctors’ visits!As far as the actually device is concerned, it’s super easy to use. When you order, you’ll get the device (pictured) that has a phone clip attached. Mine arrived quickly. The size phone you have determines the clip size. You’ll need to download a free app and scan the QR code to get started. Once you register, you can start charting your hormones.It’s best to take the test with morning urine, like it is with other fertility tests. They give you a cup to pee in. When you go to take the test, it walks you through what to do - step by step! It even has a timer you can use so you have the dip stick in the urine for the right amount of time which I really like. You will need to take your phone case off to use the clip. (I mean, they can’t account for all the different sizes of phone cases.) Once you connect the inito fertility device on your phone, you’ll get a check mark on the app (if you’re going through the testing steps) that then tells you to input the dipstick (only the plastic side). If it’s inserted properly, you’ll get a check mark again and then a timer will start.The first time, I had to put in the lot number for the fertility strips but only had to do that once. There is a count down that is usually about 600 seconds (it seems) and then a quick status bar after that.Since I’m impatient, the only thing I dislike is the waiting period for the results, but I’m that way with any urine testing things.Once the app has read the results (it uses the camera on your phone to look at the test strip), it’ll tell you if you are high or low fertility. If you go to the chart and click on that day, you can see the exact numbers. After a few days of testing, you can see the direction your hormones are going.You can also track your period and baby dances in the app. There’s a community on Facebook you can join. If you need more test strips, you can order more through the app.If you’re on the fence about buying this and are TTC, get it! It’s so worth it. I highly recommend!
