What does the app do?

Pearl Fertility is a fertility app you can use to monitor your hormone levels via urine (pee) testing to track your menstrual cycle. This may help with conception by identifying potentially fertile days. You can precisely map your hormonal cycle by using a purchased test kit (FSH and LH from urine/pee sample each morning). The app will notify you about your highly fertile days – information that potentially increases the likelihood of planned conception. The app uses artificial intelligence to detect Pearl strips via phone camera. Inbuilt timer to allow for test strip to develop.

Note: This app specifically states it is not to be used for contraceptive purposes, and also advises you to seek medical advice if you have not conceived within 6 months.

PROS CONS 

✔ Nicely designed app that is easy to use.

✔ Handy to have ability to use artificial intelligence (AI) to scan testing strips, to minimise risk of user error.

✔ Clear graphical description of chances of getting pregnant (small, some, good or high).

✔ Uses scientifically sound information to allow for accurate monitoring of hormonal cycle.

✘ It is noted on the website that Pearl has been tested in a clinical setting in the US and approved by an independent review board. However the results have not been published as yet, so there is no available data to support use.

✘ Progesterone testing strips are not included in the Pearl Fertility kit, but the app is compatible with a particular brand (purchased separately) to confirm ovulation has occurred.

✘ Some user reviews describe issues with functionality, eg, app camera not working to detect testing strips. However, it seems the support team worked with users to help solve these issues.
