What Is Fetal

Ovulation Microscope?

An ovulation microscope is a tool used to monitor and track a woman’s fertility by detecting the hormonal changes in a dried saliva sample before and during ovulation. The process is known as salivary ferning analysis and the microscope is used to determine peak fertility and by extension, the best time to try to conceive.

As ovulation approaches, there is a gradual increase in a woman’s estrogen levels. This increases the salinity in the saliva which causes structural changes in the saliva’s structure, specifically the formation of crystalline patterns referred to as ferning.
