Looking to get the best results from your ovulation calculator app? Here are our top 3 tips for the best Premom predictions.
Tip #3: Log your period accurately and consistently.
Log the start day and end day of every period cycle. A critical part of the Premom algorithm is your period data. For accurate ovulation day predictions, you must continually update your period information.
Tip #2: Use a Double-Check Method.
Period tracking is a start, but there can be variations within a woman’s cycle. Also, no tracking method is 100% accurate, particularly for those who have challenging fertility conditions, such as PCOS. So, to more accurately pinpoint your ovulation day, use a 2nd tracking method to double-check. With Premom you have many options for tracking, such as ovulation test strips, BBT tracking, progesterone test strips, and cervical mucus and symptom tracking.
And the #1 Tip for getting the best Premom cycle predictions is . . . keep testing!
When you are using ovulation tests, keep testing past peak, until you are certain your surge is over, and your levels have gone down and stayed down. If you stop testing after you get the first reading of “peak”, you may miss your true peak that’s even darker in a day or two. If you’re new to testing, have a fertility challenge like PCOS, or have had a very stressful month – you may even get a second peak. So, keep testing!
To sum up: log your period every cycle, use a double-check method, and keep ovulation testing after peak. Remember: Premom is only as accurate as the data you input!
