Accuracy depends on correct use!
As with any product, correct use is vital to ensure accuracy and that you are getting the best from your Tempdrop. Read on to run a few simple checks so you are not left confused.
It's very important your Tempdrop sensor is positioned correctly and secured so that vibration or movement is minimal. These factors can affect the results you receive so it's worth a review.
Did you know that Tempdrop's algorithm will apply updates to your previous 2 results each day upon syncing to filter any variables that may have affected your initial result? The filtering doesn't begin until your 14th sync so don't be surprised if your first few temps are not as smooth as you would expect. This smart learning technology means you can receive accurate results no matter what sleeping or environmental changes you experience. Take a look at how it works.
While algorithm filtering starts after 2 weeks of use, and most see clear charts from that point, we recommend allowing a buffer of 60 days during the early learning phase. The algorithm will continue to learn and adjust with your changing circumstances through life but this time period is the most significant. What does that mean for you, especially if you are avoiding pregnancy?
Interpreting your results
You can use Tempdrop's all-in-one solution to chart and interpret your results. Tempdrop's app will give you guidance and interpretation information but remember, you should always cross-check the results before making any fertility based decisions. Take a look at our shortened disclaimer summary if you haven't already.
Don't want to use the charting feature within the app? No problem. Once you sync your nightly result you can also input it into any other 3rd party fertility charting app or pop it on a paper chart. There are a few charting apps that have auto integration available which saves the step of manual input.
