If you’re trying to get pregnant, a fertility tracking app can provide you with the necessary information to determine your most fertile days. And most importantly allows you to track your ovulation window to make sure that you’re targeting the ‘fertile window’ in your cycle.
The ‘fertile window’ is the day an egg is released from the ovary (ovulation) and the five days beforehand. Having intercourse during this time gives you the best chance of getting pregnant.
The problem with most ovulation tests, is that they predict your fertile days by only tracking Estrogen and Luteinizing Hormone (LH), but fail to measure the hormone that actually confirms your ovulation and supports pregnancy: Progesterone.
The Inito Fertility Monitor measures the actual levels of Estrogen (E3G), Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Progesterone (PdG).
What makes it different from other ovulation tests is that Inito strips are designed to measure beta-LH – most of the test only measures alpha-LH because the values found in urine are higher than beta-LH. But the big difference is that even though beta-LH has lower values in urine samples, it is more precise and better to predict the peak fertility window.
Another big differentiator is that Inito measures progesterone levels that are higher during ovulation.
Why is Progesterone Important for Ovulation
Progesterone plays a big role when it comes to ovulation, as it is responsible for getting your uterus ready so that it can receive, implant, and support a fertilized egg during pregnancy, and it also Inhibits LH after ovulation.
Once ovulation occurs, the follicle that contained the egg transforms into a corpus luteum and begins to produce progesterone as well as estrogen, with progesterone levels peaking about halfway through the luteal phase.
Test the 3 most Important Female Fertility Hormones at Home
When it comes to women’s reproduction and fertility, there is a complex network of hormones that play a key role in ovulation. Each hormone plays a vital role in the menstrual cycle rising and falling during each phase of the 4 phases: Follicular (before the release of the egg), Menstrual (your period), Ovulatory (egg release), Luteal (after egg release)
With Inito you can track up to 6 fertile days and confirms ovulation by measuring all 3 hormones in just 5 minutes:
- Estrogen, which rises 3-4 days before ovulation
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH), which surges 24-36 hours before ovulation
- Progesterone (PdG), which rises after ovulation
Importance of tracking your cycle
Every woman’s cycle is different, some women get their period at the same time each month.
Others are more irregular, hence Inito was created to measure the real values of your hormones to personalize results to the unique you.
