Most of my regular readers realize that my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for several months now, to no avail. So when I recently got asked to review a website that estimates a woman's fertility, I jumped at the chance.
Fertilomat asks you a series of questions about your current health & lifestyle, then uses those to calculate your chances of becoming pregnant (they also offer another version to health professionals - click here to learn more).
So I logged in and answered the questions. Just from my answers alone, I garnered a ferti-index of 38. This means I currently have roughly a 38% chance of getting pregnant.
Considering this doesn't involve a medical examination of any sort, I would have to say it's probably fairly accurate.
In addition, it takes your answers and suggests things to do to improve your chances of conceiving. For mine, most of the advice related to losing weight, something I already know to be true. So again, it appears to be a fairly accurate tool.
To sum it up, I would say that if you have fertility concerns you should absolutely start by seeing your obstetrician, or at least your family doctor. But I also know that whether you are currently TTC, starting to try in the near future, or already struggling with infertility, sometimes we just want some answers, some more information. And if that's where you are, then Fertilomat might just be a good place for you to start.
As always, thanks for checking in!
