Could This Thermometer Overtake The Pill as our Go-To Method of Contraception?
Technology, however, has rebooted natural family planning in recent years, making it far more reliable and user-friendly, and as a result, women are increasingly ditching the pill in favour of it. The name has even changed – most women who use it these days refer to it as the fertility awareness method or (FAM).
One popular tool among FAM devotees is the Daysy fertility tracker. It’s a highly sensitive thermometer that reads basal temperatures (the lowest body temperature attained during sleep) and then feeds the data into its tiny onboard computer that uses a complex algorithm to figure out if you might be fertile.
