NEWARK, N.J. — The new saliva-based Knowhen Advanced Ovulation Test is looking to help patients predict the likelihood of becoming pregnant on a given day. The test is a daily monitoring method that features a reusable mini-ovulation microscope to monitor the gradual increase of estrogen in saliva to identify the five most fertile days in the ovulation cycle.
The kit can be used in conjunction with the free fertility monitor app and has been shown to be 98.9% accurate, and medication or fertility drugs won’t affect accuracy, the company said.
“We wanted to offer our user a better understanding of – and ultimately greater control over her reproductive health,” Knowhen manufacturer HiLin Life Products CEO Helen Denis said. “In addition, the app creates a storehouse of invaluable, long-term information she can share with her healthcare provider as needed.”
In addition to the mini-microscope, the Knowhen kit comes with English and Spanish instructions, app download instructions, a personal fertility chart, a lens cleaning cloth and a carrying case. Users place a drop of saliva on the microscope lens and wait for it to dry. Rising estrogen levels increase the salinity of saliva, resulting in a fern-like pattern on the lens that indicates a fertile day.
The Knowhen Advanced Ovulation Test Kit retails for $49.99 and is available on the Knowhen website
, which also provides information on finding a retailer.
