Description

This thermometer is used to take a woman's temperature every morning as soon as she wakes up, and is sensitive enough to measure very small changes in temperature. Around the time of ovulation, a woman's temperature will change slightly, and by recording her daily temperature she will be aware when she has ovulated and is therefore fertile.
