TRYING TO GET PREGNANT? AVOID THESE APPS…
A period tracking app can be a great tool. Except if you are trying to get pregnant.
If you are trying to have a baby, the evidence so far suggests don’t rely too heavily on an app. Especially if you are finding it hard to conceive.
A recently Australian study (yet to be published) looked at the 36 most common apps in Oz and found that less than 43% actually got it right at predicting ovulation correctly.
Factors including exercise, weight, diet, and ethnicity all play a role in a woman’s menstrual cycle and chances of a couple conceiving. An algorithm can’t capture all factors that affect fertility.
I specialise in working with women – and couples – who are struggling to get pregnant. More and more research shows that acupuncture helps treat infertility. It can be used on its own to help balance hormones and boost your system, or in conjunction with other fertility treatments (and it can also help reduce symptoms if you are taking fertility medication).
