Baby-Comp Will Notify You if You Become Pregnant
How should I proceed if I would like to use Baby Comp for natural conception?
You must take your temperature as regularly as possible to enable BabyComp to receive sufficient data to determine the fertile days when conception is possible.
Baby Comp "flashes red" to show the fertility optimum - the best days for Conception - you should have sexual intercourse. BabyComp will request confirmation of sexual intercourse on those days. When Baby Comp is used as an infertility solution it is important for sexual intercourse to take place on those days when the woman is at peak fertility.
BabyComp accurately recognized and indicates days for probable natural conception.
What happens if I really do become pregnant while using Baby Comp?
Baby Comp will automatically tell you that you are pregnant - without your having to do anything - earlier than any pregnancy test. In the same way as all its other applications BabyComp is able to identify the characteristic difference in temperature that accompanies pregnancy from the "normal" temperature curve very early on. A pregnancy can be possible, probable or definite. Baby Comp differentiates between these three variations and indicates in three stages.
From the third day after fertilization it indicates a possible pregnancy and from the 15th day a probable pregnancy. The confirmation of the pregnancy is displayed after the 18th day after fertilization.
The early diagnosis of a pregnancy is important for medical reasons. The latest findings about the causes of malformations and damage to the unborn child show that the earlier that an expectant woman adapts her life style to the pregnancy the better (e.g. if possible by abstaining from alcohol, cigarettes and all types of medication). The majority of malformations and damage are caused in the first weeks of a pregnancy, at a time when many women do not even know that they are pregnant and therefore have not been able to make the necessary adjustments to their life styles.
In addition, the information that BabyComp gives about the time of fertilization is accurate to the day, thanks to your SI data (SI = sexual intercourse) and the device's knowledge of when the next ovulation will take place. On the basis of the date of conception, Baby Comp is therefore able to calculate and display the expected date of birth automatically and accurately. The last date when sexual intercourse took place before ovulation is used for the prognosis of the sex of the unborn child.
Exact knowledge of the time of conception and the corresponding date of birth is considered to be valuable for modern health care during pregnancy. The usual manner of calculating the duration of a pregnancy (counting from the first day of the last menses) is inaccurate. Many women do not have an average cycle, but rather their own individual cycle.
What should I do with BabyComp during and after a pregnancy?
When you are breast-feeding your periods are very irregular, aren't they? Even when a pregnancy has been confirmed by Baby Comp, we recommend you to continue the morning temperature readings for a further 4 - 6 weeks. Baby Comp keeps an eye on the development of the early pregnancy.
Then you can put it aside until after the delivery.
The first six weeks after the birth are infertile for physiological reasons. If you breast-feed your baby without giving any artificial feeds, theoretically you continue to be infertile due to your body's production of the nursing hormone prolactin, which inhibits ovulation. This theory is generally believed to be true today.
In actual fact, however, some couples have started a new pregnancy during this time. According to the latest findings, research on the subject of infertility after a birth was made in regions where the baby was virtually constantly at the breast. This constant sucking reflex is really not the case in our cultural environment. Therefore we recommend that you start using the device again as contraception following birth.
Baby Comp has stored all your data (even without being connected to power supply) and can recommence operations immediately.
