The ovulation calculator cyclotest 2 plus

The ovulation calculator cyclotest 2 plus has proven itself on the market for more than 25 years. In a test conducted by the Stiftung Warentest (German consumer organisation and foundation that performs independent, unbiased comparative tests on consumer goods), this symptothermal mini computer was rated the best ovulation calculators.1 Manufactured in Germany, it proudly displays the seal of approval, “Made in Germany”, which is still a sign of quality and reliability today. But what is the secret to these practical assistants?

Its basic function is the calculation of the fertile and infertile phases of your menstrual cycle. And that finely attuned to your personal, individual cycle.

How is this possible? By evaluating the signals emitted by the female body during the time of ovulation. Interpreting the body temperature upon waking, which must be measured every morning with the help of the integrated measuring sensor, is the basis of the methodology. In addition to body temperature, a second ovulation symptom can be incorporated into the calculation. This process reflects the principles of the symptothermal method. The device is designed to support you in your various stages of life. In the years a pregnancy is not desired, cyclotest 2 plus identifies the phase of the menstrual cycle during which there is a risk of pregnancy. As soon as you are ready to start a family, it can help you identify the timeframe during which the chances of conceiving are the greatest.

Do I need a complex ovulation calculator?

The purpose of ovulation calculators is to indicate the days of the menstrual cycle a woman is fertile. There are simple online calculators, and really complex, small computers like those by cyclotest. A brief summary of what is out there is at the bottom of the page. But back to the topic: do I need a complex ovulation calculator?

This is a question that Pia also asked herself. For years, Pia was on the pill, and this method worked well for her. Until she looked a little deeper and began to question whether subjecting her body to such levels of hormones long term was such a good idea. There are many women like Pia who ask this question.


Ovulation calculators are reliable when trying to conceive

We met Pia who wished to find a method of contraception that is hormone free. But calculating the timeframe you are fertile can have a completely different motivation. Exactly! When you are trying to conceive. We can take this one step further: when trying to conceive, identifying the small window of time during which the female egg can be fertilised is key. This is where cyclotest myWay comes in, too. The ovulation calculator helps you identify precisely this peak fertility phase. The functions showed in the video for cyclotest myPlan are the same in cyclotest myWay.

Klara and Paul have been trying to start a family for some time, but have been unsuccessful so far. They are starting to get worried. Does the problem lie with them? They do research on the Internet and find out about the cyclotest ovulation.

You often hear the term ovulation calculator. When researching this concept, you quickly learn that the primary function or purpose of ovulation calculators is the calculation of the fertile and infertile days during a woman’s menstrual cycle. This goal can be achieved in several different ways and the results can have varying degrees of accuracy.

There are very simple ovulation calculators: these require that the user enter the start date of her last period and the average duration of her cycle. Based on this information, the fertile phase of the cycle is calculated. Sometimes the start date of the next period is also predicted. Since the information that has to be entered reflects only average values, the results indicated by the calculator are only an approximation. The degree of precision is therefore not high. This is why it is generally cautioned that the results should not be used as the basis for contraception alone.

What should be considered, is that the female menstrual cycle is highly complex, and, most importantly, that it varies from one woman to the next.

It is also noteworthy that cycle durations and ovulation timeframes can also vary from month to month in the same woman. But how do you get to the bottom of this? It requires additional data that goes beyond the average menstrual cycle duration and the last period start date. Various methods of Natural Family Planning have proven effective in this endeavour. These are focused on the observation and documentation of various body signals emitted right around the time of ovulation. This process does involve some effort, and, depending on which body signals you choose to evaluate, may require prior knowledge. Apps or ovulation computers can help make the collection and utilisation of data a little easier.

There are several types of portable mini computers available that vary in precision and usage method.

Cycle apps allow for the structured entry of body symptom information and, using a pre-programmed algorithm, calculate the fertility status of the user. So-called cycle computers work independently of smartphones or tablets. These are generally no larger than a smartphone and present a self-contained system. There are also temperature computers that monitor body temperature, and others that evaluate the concentration of the ovulation hormone, LH.

The ovulation calculators by cyclotest incorporate several symptoms. The advantage this incorporation provides is that the fertile phase can be calculated very precisely. Furthermore, cyclotest devices are adaptive, meaning that they learn the special characteristics of a woman’s cycle. We are thus talking about a much more complex form of ovulation calculator with reliable results. And that makes sense: the greater the amount of personal data that can be observed, the more accurate and credible the results!

Digital basal thermometer

Taking your temperature with a basal thermometer takes a little more effort and discipline. If you use a basal thermometer, the results have to be documented on the appropriate sheets provided and evaluated on your own. In light of the specific pattern of your temperature values, you can then determine on which days you are able to conceive. When using the basal thermometer, you are foregoing the evaluation assistance of the ovulation calculator and calculating the necessary valuations yourself. If you opt for the temperature method, the advantage is that you will get to know your own body’s processes.

The speciality thermometer, cyclotest lady, can capture even the most minute temperature fluctuations. The flexible measuring tip is particularly easy to handle. Pre-printed sheets to document measurement values are included.

An alternative for women who are well-versed in the field of Natural Family Planning!
