Hey All!

As many of you know, my husband and I have been trying to expand our family and have a new baby. Before we started trying, I had never really kept track of my ovulation schedule. I quickly realized, as we began to start trying, I needed to help to do this! Thankfully, I discovered the Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System and app! It’s made planning our family and knowing when is the best time to try so much easier! This system combines the pairing accuracy of a Clearblue® Ovulation Test, with the convenience of an app! The new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System maximizes chances of getting pregnant in a way like never before!

The system comes with a Wake-Up Stick (The first item you see below, which allows you to connect the holder to your app via Bluetooth), 25 Foil Wrapped Test Strips (The purple wrapped item you see below), and the Holder (The item with the screen in the picture below). You then go on the Apple App Store for your iPhone or the Google Play App Store for your android devices to install the Clearblue® Connected App. Once you download the app, you can connect your test holder/reader to your app. This is the first and only system to track two unique hormones now with connectivity to a smartphone, helping women get pregnant faster.[1]

You’ll connect your holder to your app using the Wake-Up Stick. You’ll connect the Wake-Up Stick to your holder. You should hear a click when they are connected and the blue arrow on the Wake-Up Stick should align with the white arrow on the holder. You’ll make sure your phone Bluetooth is turned on and connect the holder to your app. You will see some corresponding images appear on your app that will match the blinking images on your holder. You’ll tap the same images on the app and tap continue on the app to complete the syncing process.

You can then begin testing! The app will tell you when are the best days to begin testing after you input the first day of your period. It will calculate your cycle based on this information. It will also send you notification reminders, to remind you to take your test during the first time you use the restroom in the morning. When it comes to tracking a woman’s fertility, all cycles are different. The new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System accurately identifies personal fertile days using your hormone data – instead of guessing from a standardized algorithm. That’s just what we need since we found most apps weren’t really accurate in identifying my most fertile days. A recent published study found that only 9% of free apps accurately predict the best days for conception,[2] opening a large window for error. That does not help when you’re trying to have a baby!

I digress…

When you start testing, you’ll connect a test strip with the holder and use it first thing in the morning. You’ll hold it in your urine stream for 3 seconds and then wait for the test ready symbol to begin flashing. This will show you the test is working. After 5 minutes, you’ll have your results. It will either show you a static circle, which means low fertility…

Or a blinking or static happy face symbol. A blinking happy face symbol means high fertility. A static happy face symbol means peak fertility and the best time to try for a baby.

Before you remove the test strip, you’ll check out your results and sync them to your app. You’ll see the Bluetooth symbol and an asterisk on your holder screen.

Once those symbols are gone from your app, your screen will then show the results on your app and keep track of your ovulation cycle. There is clinical data that shows women get pregnant faster when they use Clearblue® ovulation vs. not using any method.

Using this system has been a godsend! It’s made planning for a new baby so much easier! I don’t have to worry about missing my most fertile times now-a-days and I also don’t have to worry about keeping track of my ovulation cycle. The app keeps track of all of that for me! When you have a busy schedule like my husband and I do, you’re going to need a little bit of help to keep track of your ovulation cycle. You don’t want to miss trying on your most fertile days and you’re going to need something to help keep track of it all. The Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System is here to help!! It’s definitely helped us immensely on our road to a new baby.

By tracking two key fertility hormones, the Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System typically identifies four or more best days to get pregnant, two more days than any other ovulation brand on the market [1]. The new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation gives women more flexibility and identifies more opportunities to get pregnant.

I keep my Clearblue® Ovulation Tests right in my bathroom, so I can easily access it each morning. This new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System allows women like me to understand and take control of their reproductive health by connecting us directly to our personal fertility information on our smartphone. I’m excited to try for a baby using the new Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System!

If you’re trying to have a baby, I highly recommend you get yourself a Clearblue® Connected Ovulation Test System ASAP! It will make your life and planning a baby so much easier!
