DuoFertility Monitor as Effective as IVF

Handheld Fertility Device Is as Effective as IVF

British women may soon be taking their fertility into their own hands. A small handheld device that measures tiny changes in body temperature has been found to have the same pregnancy success rate as the much more costly IVF for couples with common infertility issues. The Cambridge scientists behind DuoFertility ($777), claim that the device has a 99.7 percent accuracy rate for detecting fertile days leading to a pregnancy success rate of 19.5 percent after six months, the same as the more traditional IVF.

DuoFertility is a two-part fertility monitor. A small button-sized sensor is worn under the arm to collect 20,000 temperature measurements throughout the day. A handheld reader collects data from the sensor to instantly alert the user to her most fertile days. When connected to a computer, the reader transfers more fertility information to provide users with a more detailed report. The system also allows women trying to conceive to enter additional physiological parameters, such as cervical mucus conditions and length of cycle. With the cost of IVF often exceeding $100,000, would you be willing to try the monitor?
