Fertility Monitor

Hi,

My husband & I recently decided on starting a family, since I am 40 I just purchased a Clear Blue Fertility Monitor. Has anyone used one before? It states in the booklet that I need a "sterile cup". Any suggestions?

I would appreciate any help...

Thanks

Hi Ana! I have used the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor for a little over a year. I don't use a sterile cup (I travel for work, so that would be difficult at times to ensure...) I simply pee on the stick for 3 seconds. Could you consider that option?

BTW, I also chart my temp...I have found the combination to be very helpful. Take care...and welcome!!

I have the monitor and got pregnant Sept 204 but miscarried in Nov. I will keep using it, you asked about a sterile cup. I use small kids dixie cups from a papercup dispenser I set on my bathroom counter top. It works great. Good luck (by the way I just turned 41 Nov 21st 2004)

Hi, Margie.


Do you find that your temp confirms the monitor's findings when you ovulate? Just wondering if there were discrepancies between the two that
