We’re thinking of getting an ovulation testing device would this be an effective birth control method?

My husband and I are opposed to using the Pill or other contraceptives, but we don’t want any more kids. We’re thinking of getting an ovulation testing device (a really expensive one that tests saliva and vagina conditions and charts the results on the computer), and then ONLY have sex three days or more after ovulation occurs.

If we’re very careful about sticking to this plan, would this be an effective birth control method?

Hi
Sperms lifespan in uterus is 3 days which means intercourse before ovulation can result in pregnancy , so there is this Slim risk That ovulation testing device may not help
Good Luck

it’s success rate is v high, I do really appreciate those ways without any medical intervention, natural ways,
But u must be v careful ,
Also let me tell you that if you have regular periods , u can calculate the ovulation day timing as well without the device , but the device will be safer

In my opinion it is not going to help much ,as for the possibility of a sperm to fertilize an egg in that period ,of course it is less possible but still possible if you are not getting contraceptive or hormonal method ..

Yes, ovulation testing device can be helpful but you need to take care that sperms last for 3 days in female genital tract..
Therefore calculation should be made based on the day of your periods and correlation with the ovulation test machine..
Avoid intercourse from about 10 the day post periods and wait till the ovulation occurs..
Wait for two days post ovulation to be safe..

Hope this helps..
