Use of the Bioself
Bioself is very easy to use. Every morning, when you wake up, you record your temperature. So that you do not forget, Bioself will even remind you with a discrete audible signal.
Once a month, on the first day of your period, you press the red menstruation button to record in the Bioself memory the beginning of your new menstrual cycle.
This is all you have to do. The Bioself fertility indicator will automatically analyse, process the information and tell you through one of its three indicator lights your fertility level for that day.
The green light means that you are in the infertile phase of your cycle.
The constant red light means that you are in the less fertile phase of your cycle. During this phase, there is a small probability of conception.
The flashing red light means that you are in the very fertile phase of your cycle. It is the phase during which your chances of conceiving a child are greatest.
If you use Bioself for contraceptive purposes, you must abstain from sexual intercourse during the "red" days. If you choose to use a barrier contraceptive method (e.g., condoms) during a "red" day, the risk of pregnancy will depend on the reliability of the method you chose
If you use Bioself for the purpose of planning a pregnancy, it is advised to have sexual intercourse every other day during the "flashing red light" phase.
You can start to use Bioself at any moment in your cycle. Bioself was designed to be used orally, or in the rectum or vagina. No matter what method you choose, you must use the same orifice throughout a cycle, because the temperature varies depending on the orifice chosen.
Here are some simple rules to help you use the Bioself® fertility device properly
Every morning, when you wake up, before getting up and beginning any activity, such as speaking, eating, drinking or smoking, you must record your basal body temperature. Place the probe under your tongue, close to the middle of your mouth. After approximately two minutes, Bioself will emit a "Beep" which informs you that the temperature has been correctly measured and recorded.
The time you record your temperature in the morning is very important, because it will determine the time window Bioself allows for you to take your temperature the next day. Bioself gives you a four hour time window that is two hours before and two hours after the measurement time of the previous day.
Monday, you take your temperature at 7:00 am, so on Tuesday you can perform the same operation between 5:00 am and 9:00 am.
For optimal use, we recommend that you record your temperature at approximately the same time every day.
If you wish to make radical changes to your time window - because of a trip to a country in a different time zone or in case of working irregular hours - you can modify the time window with the Menu HOUR.
Once a month, on the first day of your period, you must press the red menstruation button to inform Bioself® that you are at beginning of your new menstrual cycle. This is very important in determining the beginning of the fertile period.
