Ava – Get to know your body. Get to know you

Do you suffer from irregular cycle or are you planning a pregnancy? Make your life easier with Ava fertility tracker.

I am currently pre-planning my pregnancy and I stopped taking my contraceptive pills a few month ago. I wanted to get my body back to its normal stage for a year before getting pregnant.

I had irregular cycles which normalized after taking the pill. I never bothered to track my cycle so I do not even know how my normal cycle is like.

I was searching for a way to track my cycle in order to get to know my body better. It makes getting pregnant much easier and faster. Then I found out about the Ava fertility tracker and I was convinced that it is worth a try.

I mean how cool is the idea that you could wear a tracker on your wrist overnight and it would do all the work for you? Then in the morning you can just synchronize the data onto your phone.

How does Ava work?

Well, the Ava has sensors which can measure 9 parameters to calculate the fertile days. By this way Ava is able to recognize the beginning of your fertile days and when it actually ends giving the exact window when to try for a baby.

– Ava works with 89% of accuracy

– it recognizes 5.3 fertile days per cycle

– Ava was tested for a year in a clinical study at the University Hospital Zurich

– Ava is a FDA approved medical device of class I

Ava measures the 9 following parameters:

1. Resting pulse rate (lower during the follicular stage)

2. Skin temperature

3. Heart rate variability ratio (lower ratio; less stress)

4. Sleep

5. Perfusion (higher in the fertile days)

6. Breathing rate

7. Movement

8. Heat loss

9. Bioimpedance

Many things which happen within your body or even mentally are cycle related so using Ava can make you understand your body and yourself better.

I have ordered Ava tracker online and have been using it for the past 3 nights.

the Ava sensor comes with a blue wristlet, USB cable and a manual. Before you use the tracker the first time you should charge it (I forgot to do it hence it did not collect enough data the first night).

You have to download the Ava app on your phone and then generate your profile. Via Bluetooth you can synchronize the data collected overnight to your phone.

My first impression of the Ava fertility tracker is very positive due to the following reasons:

1. It is straight forward to use

2. It has a nice and elegant design (the blue makes it very appealing)

3. Makes tracking your cycle and fertile days easier

4. Tracks 9 different parameters, which are hard to track otherwise

5. Data can be collected on your phone so you have it all the time with you

6. You only have to wear it overnight

7. Comfortable to wear

8. Light weight

The only contra I would like to mention is the price. Currently it costs 249CHF which is quite expensive. But if it really works like it is supposed to be and makes getting pregnant easier and faster then it is worth the money.

I need to test the product longer to provide a proper review and opinion but so far so good.

Hope the first impression helped you.

Have a cup of raspberry leave tea!

Even in the ancient time it was a known fact that the raspberry leaves have many therapeutic benefits.

The leaves contain polyphenols which act as antioxidants. Free radicals are naturally formed in the cells of our body during various mechanisms which lead to cell damages. Antioxidants may counteract with the cell damage and may even repair it.

The leaves have been used against diarrhea and it may also help to relax the blood vessels. The tea can be beneficial against cramps during your cycle and can even increase your fertility. Nowadays the tea is used a lot during birth preparation as it is supposed to induce contractions.

I am currently preparing my body slowly for pregnancy and thought I should give this tea a try. The raspberry leaves are known to regulate your cycle too and has a beneficial effect on the uterus.

I bought my tea at an organic grocery store and it costed about 12 Dollars which is quite expensive. But is is always better to pay a little bit more money if you want good quality of tea.

The taste of the tea is mainly neutral like many other herbal teas.

 You should drink about 2 cups per day. I usually use one teaspoon of the leaves with boiling hot water and let it infuse for about 10min before I remove the leaves.

I love drinking tea throughout the day so it is always nice to have a change of tea. What is more relaxing than a cup of good tea?

Until next time,
