“OV-Watch uses state of the art technology to accurately predict fertility, increasing a couples chance of pregnancy and shortening the time it takes to conceive. Unlike older methods of ovulation detection, which may be hard to interpret or only give 12 – 24 hours warning, OV-Watch reduces the stress of couples who are trying to expand their family, by identifying a 4 or 5 day fertility window where pregnancy is possible.”
