I stumbled on an ad in this month’s Working Mother magazine for The Ov Watch Fertility Predictor.
The advertisement featured a bizarre Swatch-looking watch with the tagline,
“Finding the RIGHT TIME to conceive can be frustrating”…
ooooooh, pure marketing genius there.
After I laughed thinking how dorky it would be to run into someone at the supermarket wearing said watch:
“ooooOOH! Nice watch!”
“It’s my fertility monitor, you like?”
Ok, so after I laughed my ass off I went out to the website for some research, I figured it would be entertaining at the least.
Apparently, this watch is to be worn at night, and registers female hormones from your sweat. So it doesn’t come in 7 fashion colors. Bummer.
and then I saw this quoted gem:
Nearly 66% more pregnancies are estimated to occur by month 6 with OV-Watch over urinary LH kits.
Wow, so that explains why I’m not pregnant!!! I’ve been buying the tried and true LH kits which apparently suck against the Ov Watch. [are you hearing the sarcasm?]
They even have a ‘Get pregnant in 3 months’ offer.
I must be missing the boat.
Jokes aside, I know I have a lot of readers to this blog that are also trying to get pregnant. Have any of you considered this device, used it, effective, or a piece of junk?
I am just so jaded around fertility, I sincerely think that this science seems kinda odd. But that’s just me. If it was so great I have to think I would have heard all my fertility-challenged friends run to the store for this one.
I just keep going back to the thought of getting into bed with the watch on and hubby declaring I am plumb out of my freaking mind.
Yes, I do hinge on the edge of desperate at times, but not there yet. I like my FM and my pee sticks, and I can determine my fertility in the privacy of my own bathroom. Not wear it!
But that’s just me.
