Natural fertility awareness
Natural fertility awareness (based) methods (FABM)
The term “fertility awareness-based methods” (FABM) refers to different ways of determining fertile and infertile phases of the female cycle and can be used for family planning. The basis of all fertility awareness-based methods relies on a woman´s understanding and recognition of her fertility! Therefore, the exact determination of the fertile and infertile days in a woman's cycle is based on her natural physiological signs. Fertility awareness methods (FAM) provide couples exact with the information they need to identify the days in each cycle when the woman is likely to conceive.
There are different ways and methods that women can use to determine their fertility. These include the temperature method, cervical mucus method, calendar method, symptothermal method and symptohormonal method.
Daysy: A precise method in terms of the fertility awareness method (FAM)
As a reliable lifestyle fertility tracker, in the terms of the fertility awareness method (FAM), Daysy calculates the fertile phase of the woman’s cycle based on a very sensitive and precise, computer-assisted basal body temperature measurement, obtained directly after waking up.
Daysy’s integrated thermometer enables a particularly precise measurement. This distinguishes Daysy from other methods which require a separate basal thermometer, leaving it up to the user which thermometer is used.
Consequently, there is no guarantee that the applied thermometer meets the required standards. Measurement inaccuracies and rounding errors can occur due to the thermometer or when entering the data into the app. These errors can lead to unwanted pregnancies or unfulfilled pregnancy wishes.
Due to an intelligent algorithm based on scientific research, many years of experience of more than 500,000 users and sophisticated technology, Valley Electronics products offer the highest quality, precision, and reliability for menstrual cycle tracking. Factors that influence the menstrual cycle, such as phases of stress, alcohol consumption and sleep deprivation, are considered in the algorithm.
The studies supported by Valley Electronics show that Daysy’s algorithm differentiates between the fertile and infertile window with an accuracy of more than 99%, providing a reliable alternative to common fertility awareness methods (FAM).
Daysy enables women like you to deal more naturally with their fertility and menstrual cycle. As a reliable lifestyle fertility tracker, in the terms of the fertility awareness method, Daysy calculates the fertile phase of the woman’s cycle based on a very sensitive and precise, computer-assisted basal body temperature measurement, obtained directly after waking up. Daysy tells you when you are in your fertile window and when you are not. During your fertile window you can choose to plan a pregnancy, during your infertile phase you can not. It's your choice.

If Daysy shows you a green light, you are not fertile.
If Daysy shows you a red light, you are fertile/ possible fertile
If Daysy shows you a red flashing light, that it your predicted day of ovulation

Opportunities and Challenges of Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABM)
The most important benefit of fertility awareness based methods (FABM) is that they are free of hormonal and chemical agents. These methods are solely based on the observation of the individual body and cycle; therefore, they meet the needs of a women who strive for a natural lifestyle, cycle awareness and sophisticated body literacy. Not only do women learn more about their fertile phases, they can also identify and understand bodily changes better.
Furthermore, women, together with their partners, can decide in a self-determined way about their family planning goals.
In order for these fertility awareness methods (FAM) to be effective, a certain period of practice and continuity in observing of the monthly cycle and continuity is necessary. Highest precision can be achieved with the regular use of fertility tracking tools such as the medical device Daysy.
Daysy is the only fertility tracker that combines the temperature method with a sophisticated algorithm and uses statistical calculations to ensure accurate forecasting. This allows flexibility in planning a pregnancy or not with maximum accuracy
