Temperature method

Why does trackle measure the temperature? And why vaginal? What does the temperature have to do with getting pregnant? And why do I have to deal with topics like “cervical mucus"? Are we perhaps exaggerating a bit?
To be honest, no. Measure temperature, but correct. And here’s why:

What is the temperature method?

trackle supports you in the correct use of the so-called “symptothermal method", which is sometimes abbreviated to “temperature method". The trick is that NOT ONLY  the temperature but also other fertility paramerters are observed and included into the calculation- namely the “symptoms" of the “symptothermal method".

Before ovulation, your body is busy ripening several ovarian follicles. That’s what the hormone FSH does. All of these growing follicles produce estrogen – and when enough estrogen is in the blood, the hormone LH becomes active and triggers ovulation: the best, most beautiful and most developed of the mature follicles, bursts and sends its egg cell on the journey.

While the egg cells is on the way, the follicle is closing. It become the yellow body of the ovary and produces progesterone. This hormone causes a characteristic increase in body temperature – this higher temperature persists until the next menstruation begins and a new cycle begins.

Advantages of the symptothermal method

Observing body symptoms, including temperature, has been proven to work. It is noninvasive, informative and helps women to get to know their body and make self-responsible decisions.
The temperature method and the trackle app help you calculate your fertile days by measuring your temperature and reliably evaluating the data.

Disadvantages of the symptothermal method

The interaction of the different hormones is a miracle – but also not a machine. Different things can bring the system out of balance.

And your everyday life is really packed? Measure, know and feel what your body is doing, while being busy – not so easy to implement.

That is why errors in the implementation of the temperature method easily occur – especially if it is measured selectively, i.e. only in the morning – and the data is entered or noted by hand.

Reliability of the symptothermal method

The symptothermal method, on which trackle is based, is well researched for many years, demonstrating its reliability in determining fertile days.

trackle makes the temperature method easy

Actually it has to be calles “symptothermal method", not “temperature method". Because to be able to realiably tell, when ovulation has occured and what the current cycle status is, temperature values must be properly measured, transmitted and combined with other body observations.

This id done by the trackle system for your:

  1. trackle only uses core body temperature from within your body – the so-called surface temperature, i.e. on the wrist, is too easy to influence
  2. trackle measures while you sleep. This avoids the error-prone selective measurement in the morning- this contributes to safety
  3. trackle transfers your temperature data automatically – no more mistakes, when entering curves, tables and apps
  4. trackle calculates your cycle according to the standards of the symptothermal method – well researched and reliable

Measure core body temperature accurately

The trackle sensor uses a high-precision thermometer that accurately records and stores your core body temperature ind hundredths of a second. This is in liene with the requirements of the symptothermal method.

While sleeping

The classic measuring in the moring is difficult: it requires a lot of discipline and a regular rhythm of life to be trule reliable. Measuring in sleep therefore makes your life easier: no matter when you wake up, when your are sleeping, whether, you are disturbed at night or have partied longer in the evening. By measuring your basal body temperature during sleep, the lowest value is definitely recognized. Certainly.

trackle does the work for You

Calculate, count, follow rules, enter values: yes, that is everything you need to do, so that the results are correct. But you do not have to do that yourself, right? There is the clever trackle system. It transfers your data and calculates everything that is necessary for a reliable result.
