History and Future of Cycle Monitors in Natural Family Planning

Authors: Christian Gnoth, Sarah Johnson, Sarah Weddell, , Judith Roos and Guenter Freundl

For fertility awareness based methods charting and monitoring of the menstrual cycle can be supported by different devices. All these cycle monitors promise to detect the fertile and infertile days by using direct and indirect markers of fertility in a woman´s menstrual cycle.

The data of our own studies and data out of the literature were revisited to rate the efficacy and reliability of the tested home monitors. Additionally, first insight into preliminary results of a prospective study on home urinary hormone assays in 40 women with frequent analysis of reproductive hormones and ultrasonography to observe follicle development and collapse will be given.

Only for hormone and for temperature monitors scientific studies are existing. The efficacy of the various devices differ significantly. Hormone monitors have a high innovative potential. With new home assays for urinary hormone analysis an improved efficacy and reliability can be achieved. For this purpose the first reference normograms for urinary reproductive hormones referenced to actual day of ovulation will be provided and future developments will be outlined.

Key words: contraception, fertility, menstrual cycle, cycle monitor, natural family planning, NFP,
