Easy to use, super accurate, discrete!
I have irregular periods and only ovulate from one of my ovaries, so even when using normal ovulation tests, it is difficult for me to know when I am fertile. My midwife suggested using a fertility microscope to check for ferning, so I decided I had nothing to lose. I decided to use it twice a day from the end of one period until the start of my next period so I could get familiar with the microscope and what I was seeing. I also did some research separate from what came with this microscope. When you use the microscope, you can either use cervical mucous or saliva. I decided to use saliva for the first month, and then if I was unable to see a difference then I would try a month with CM.
This microscope is a discreet size so I can keep it in my purse and because I decided to test it using saliva first, I was able to use it anywhere without a hassle. When I used the microscope, I would pool some saliva on my tongue, dip the glass end onto my tongue (so there was quite a thick drop of saliva on the glass), and then turn it on it's end while it dried. When it was dry, I looked through the viewing end and turned the light on (it was quite a bright green light) to look for the ferning or crystal patterns. After it was easy to rinse under water or wipe with a wet wipe, and then cap it until the next time.
I wish I had been able to take pictures of what I saw - but I'm not that good with my phone camera - because there was a definite difference between the day before I ovulated, and the day I ovulated! I was so surprised and happy that I could see the difference, and now I feel secure knowing that I can track whether I have ovulated over the next couple of months as my husband and I try to conceive.
I would recommend this little fertility microscope to any woman who is trying to track their ovulation! Easy to use, and super accurate!

This fertility scope is not easy to see at all. Also cleaning the scope also isn't the easiest. I wouldn't recommend this scope.

Hard to see and read. Instructions were not clear either. Took some trial and error and still not totally sure.

I have PCOS and my husband is in the Navy and gone a good deal of time. We have been TTC for a long time and this has fully shown and made it easy to figure out when I am ovulating. My friend swears by this and I am currently waiting the full 2 weeks to test now. I would recommend this to anyone who has had problems TTC.

Tricky to figure out, but once you do it works great. I have yet to have any of the problems such as it breaking or the light going out that other people have mentioned.

Doesn't show a thing. Completely blank in the center. It doesn't matter how long I wait for it to dry.

Don't waste your time or money
I purchased this microscope after reading about using saliva ferning to predict ovulation. The microscope itself is functional. It is easy to use. However, I used this product for an entire cycle and did not at any point see any changes to my saliva. I don't know if the microscope was not powerful enough or if saliva ferning is simply not substantiated as a means of monitoring fertility. I got "nonfertile" results for 30 days. In addition to using this product I was monitoring my cervical mucus, basal body temp, and using the clearblue digital ovulation test. So, I am sure that I had an estrogen increase, and a LH surge, and did ovulate during the month. I would not buy this product again nor recommend it to anyone.
