Ovulation calendar: Calculating fertile days with the calendar method?
Discover the advantages of Daysy and the practical ovulation app DaysyView!
Have you settled for natural family planning and would like to use the calendar method for birth control? Then be advised that this method is very unsafe and strictly not recommended by experts. Why? Because your cycle can change at any time: Just a little bit of stress at work or a small flu can lead to errors in your calculation without you even noticing it. Calculating your fertile days with the calendar method basically only makes sense when you want to get pregnant anyway and don’t care how quickly you conceive. In this case, you can estimate your fertile days with the help of a personal ovulation calendar and use this interval for unprotected sex. But for birth control, the calendar method is anything but suited!
Daysy gives you 99,4% accuracy!
Daysy calculates your fertile days for you with an accuracy of 99,4%, giving it a very good Pearl Index of 0.6. The Pearl Index indicates how safe a method or means of contraception is. The lower the value, the safer it is in preventing a pregnancy. Daysy makes your natural family planning easy, comfortable and safe.
In order for Daysy to be able to calculate your fertile days as precisely as possible, you have to use it every morning before you get out of bed. All you need to do is take your basal temperature by placing the device's test prod underneath your tongue and waiting until you hear a signal sound. The measurement takes only 30-60 seconds! After that, Daysy might ask you to confirm via the push of a button that you are currently on your period, before displaying your current fertility status with a colourful light.
Red means that you are fertile and should either avoid to have sex, or alternatively use an additional barrier method like a condom or a diaphragm when having sex. If Daysy's light is green it means that you will not be fertile within the next 24 hours and don’t even have to think about birth control. Daysy always shows you precisely when you have to use contraception.
