Getting pregnant isn鈥檛 as easy as you might think. For many folks聽trying to have a baby, the process can involve fertility apps, doctors and strict schedules. Even with all those pieces in place, it can still take a long time to get pregnant 鈥 if at all 鈥 without going down the fertility treatment route. Well, for those of us who want to figure out how to make our baby dreams come true, there鈥檚 a new, FDA-approved wearable on the market that can help solve a number of fertility-tracking problems at once.


Released just yesterday,聽the Ava wearable fertility tracker was designed by a reproductive health company after learning that simply tracking your cycle doesn鈥檛 guarantee that you鈥檒l actually get pregnant. With this information in hand, the company set out to create a piece of wearable tech that wouldn鈥檛 just track your period鈥檚 start and end date, but would take into account your pulse, breathing rate, sleeping schedule and more 鈥 all while you sleep 鈥 in order to get the most accurate information about your most fertile days.


The makers of the bracelet claim that the data it receives can narrow down聽almost five and a half days per menstrual聽cycle where your fertility is at its peak, increasing your chances of getting pregnant by a whopping 89 percent. Ava CEO Lea von Bidder says, 鈥淔or most women, there are only about six days per month where there is any possibility of conceiving, and only three days per month where it is likely.聽Even under the most favorable conditions鈥 a young, healthy couple having frequent unprotected intercourse 鈥 there is only about a 25 percent chance of getting pregnant in a given month.鈥 This comes as news to many who thought that simply tracking your cycle could up your chances of having a baby.


While the聽bracelet isn鈥檛 totally cheap (it retails for $199), it鈥檚 much less expensive than traditional medical fertility treatments, and von Bidder claims that the Ava can cut the time it takes for you to get pregnant in half.
