A Self-contained Reusable Instrument to Aid in the Detection and Identification of the Most Fertile Period of the Female Reproductive Cycle Thereby Maximizing the Possibility for a Successful Pregnancy.  New Product Design, Improved Optics, Discreet and Extremely User Friendly.


Fertilitygraphic.jpg (19610 bytes)The female fertility period occurs once during the monthly menstrual cycle. The ovum (egg) matures in approximately the middle of the cycle, about 14 days prior to the onset of menstruation. The fertility period peaks for 2 to 3 days with an average total duration of 4 to 6 days, though this can vary depending on many biological and environmental factors. Calculation of this fertile period using non-clinical or traditional methods can be quite inaccurate, especially in the case of women with irregular cycles. For couples wanting children, or concerned with family planning, the results can be frustrating at best. Consequently, the use of forensic tests based on the specific biological and hormonal phenomena occurring naturally in the female body during this fertility period can be useful in helping to maximize the chances of successful fertilization and resultant pregnancy and conversely, help to minimize the possibility of an unwanted pregnancy. Obviously by abstaining from intercourse during this fertility period, the possibility of pregnancy is greatly reduced. For answers to the most frequently asked questions about fertility tests and testing please see the Fertility FAQ and OVULENS™ FAQ Page.

Q. Do those new Saliva-Based Ovulation Predictors work? Are they difficult to use?
A. According to preliminary data, they do seem to work as effectively as the conventional urine tests. The advantages are that they're less messy than urine kits and you can use them anywhere at any time. They are more expensive, about $60 a test kit compared to about $20 for the urine-based kits. But if you're tracking your cycle in an attempt to conceive, the newer test can be used multiple times for up to a year or more.

Fortunately, specific biological changes in the female body can indicate fertile and infertile periods. Often used is the traditional curve of the basal body temperature. In the first half of the cycle, shortly after the beginning of the menstrual period, the basal temperature is low. After the egg is released, the temperature rises. While this method has been used for years, it requires accurate and specific record keeping and results are often disappointing. More specific is testing for the peaking of production the female LH hormone which is discussed fully under the Ovulation page. Additionally, just prior to ovulation, electrolytes (or salts) increase dramatically in body fluids (e.g.. cervical mucus and saliva) along with the hormone estrogen. Consequently, being able to identify this increase in electrolytes (salts) is an alternative method for identifying the onset of ovulation.    

Ovulens Open finalHistorically, it has been clinically and scientifically observed that, during the fertile period, a sample of normal female saliva or cervical mucus when dried and examined under a microscope contains many structures resembling ferns. These fern structures are actually dried salt or electrolyte crystals present as a result of the electrolyte build up prior to and during ovulation. On all other days of the female cycle only shapeless, dotted structures can be seen. This natural phenomenon has been known for many years to researchers and medical professionals. However, a precision miniature microscope designed specifically to aid in the indication of the fertility period is now available. Any woman can now easily check her fertility cycle anytime, anywhere without the need for basal charting or urine samples. Saliva is the most accessible body fluid and easiest to obtain. There is no need for complicated blood or urine tests. "Fern" structuring starts 3-4 days before ovulation and ceases 2-3 after ovulation. The OVULENS microscope is a scientific instrument with a precision 60X power magnification lens and premium optics that is a significant quality upgrade over other such devices and be used over and over again. OVULENS™ FAQ

Using the OVULENS™ Saliva Microscope

  1. Ovulens labelFirst, so the sample will be pure and the test reliable, it is recommended that daily testing be done in the morning upon awakening, prior to eating or drinking anything.

  2. Open the OVULENS™ cover. Pull down the eyepiece/focus assembly to expose the clear specimen plate.

  3. With a cotton swab or clean fingertip, place a small non-foamy drop of saliva from under the tongue on the center of the clean specimen plate.

  4. Allow the saliva specimen to dry on the open specimen plate. Depending on ambient humidity, drying time can take ten minutes or more. Do not attempt to rush this process. This is the most important phase of testing. The sample must be completely dry. A hair dryer on the low setting can be used to speed up the drying process.

  5. When the saliva sample is completely dry, tilt the specimen plate back up to its original position in the OVULENS™.

  6. Press the red button to turn on the testing light and bring the eyepiece very close to your eye (remove your glasses if applicable) and look through the eyepiece. Gently rotate the focus adjustment wheel as needed to bring the view into sharp focus. Using the charts included with the OVULENS™, record the result of the test view (clear, spotty, fern, etc.) The test view will approximate the illustrations below.

Finally clean the specimen plate thoroughly with water or a mild ammonia solution using a cotton swab until clear and dry. Clean the specimen plate in the same manner as you would your eyeglasses. An excellent cleanser is an enzymatic contact lens cleaner as this will remove any protein buildup on the specimen plate. After cleaning, tilt the eyepiece assembly back up into the housing. The OVULENS™ Saliva Fertility Tester is now ready for the next test procedure.

In more detail, the chart above moves left to right from menstruation through a typical female cycle. The views shown approximate examples of what may be seen at various times during the fertility cycle through the OVULENS™. These different view examples should prove useful in understanding what you are looking for in the way of changes happening prior to, and during ovulation. The chart assumes Day 1 is the first day of menstrual bleeding.

Important Information

  • Ovulens schematicThe slide must be cleaned between each use to avoid contamination on the sample.

  • The saliva sample can be affected by smoking, alcohol or food consumption, therefore it is recommended to abstain from these substances for at least two (2) hours prior to testing.

  • If it is not possible to obtain a spontaneous, clear saliva sample, cervical mucus may be substituted. Cervical mucus will also indicate the "fern structures" during the fertile period.

  • The OVULENS is designed for everyday use and does not require special care other than cleaning of the specimen plate.
