Introduction

The author of the device, a well-known gynecologist-endocrinologist, Berkengheym Mihail Leonidovich, the fertility doctor who helped thousands of women to find happiness of motherhood, for years, wanted to create simple, accurate and reliable device for the regulation of fertility, early detection of diseases and disorders of physiological functions of the female organism
And finally, this device is created and available to every woman!
There is no such woman who at least once a month did not count the days until the next menstruation, was not nervous, why it did not come, or, conversely, wondered why the long-awaited pregnancy does not occur?
Now we have a device that will help us answer all these questions.
Device “Vesta” is a compact laboratory for the determination of ovulation for all your life.
In this brochure, we tried to talk about what every woman should know about herself, about the history and methods of contraception, about her physiology.
We will also consider the use of the device for the detection of gynecological and other diseases, determining the period of ovulation, determining the period of possible conception of the future child of a given sex, correction of diet to prevent a number of serious diseases. We will give recommendations for proper operation and interpretation of the device during the diagnosis. We will consider the possible situations that arise when working with the device

Tasks solved with the help of the device.

Technical characteristics of the device
The main task of the device is to identify a number of diseases of the female body in the stages when minor correction or just basic tips will help to avoid serious complications.
So, for example:
Many young women start taking various pills or use other means to prevent pregnancy. They do not know that they have not yet formed ovarian function, there is no ovulation, and therefore taking drugs that block ovulation can bring great harm to women’s health.
Girls with menstrual disorders, as a rule, suffer from lack of ovulation, and to control the recovery of ovarian function against the background of the liver, in the process of maturation of the body they need a device to control ovulation.
Device “Vesta” warn about possible violations in the body, and, turning to the doctor, or when a more complete examination, it will be possible in a timely manner to assist the woman.
In cases where pregnancy is necessary, the device will help a woman to properly adjust the mode of sexual life and get pregnant faster.
With a number of diseases, the symptom of which is infertility, the device will help to save time and quickly start treatment, as well as to monitor its effectiveness.
Some tumors have the feature of producing hormones in large quantities, and these hormones block ovulation. The device, noting the absence of ovulation, will recommend seeing a doctor, and the faster the treatment is started, the better his results will be. For women with disorders of the

pituitary gonadotropin, proceeding by the type of anovulation (lack of ovulation) with follicle persistence, the device is also useful, since the diagnostic feature of “Vesta” is the possibility of a differential diagnosis between a full ovulation period and the presence of a persistent follicle. (“False ovulation”, iuft sd)
In sclerocystic ovary syndrome, a constant increase in LH, FSH according to the device is not accompanied by a false positive result of ovulation, which also emphasizes the uniqueness of the method.
Another important task of the device is to control the content of potassium in saliva, therefore, in the body.
The presence of potassium, and especially its concentration, is a very important indicator of human health. This is due to the fact that potassium is involved in almost all metabolic processes, and reducing its concentration leads to their violations, which is very dangerous for life.
The main feature of potassium metabolism is the long-established fact that the body does not create a potassium depot (there are no mechanisms for creating potassium reserves). Therefore, the definition of reducing the amount of potassium to the maximum possible will help to build a diet and prevent many diseases associated with violation of potassium metabolism disorders

4.5. It is necessary to protect the device from dust, moisture and high temperatures.
4.6. In case of non-compliance with the above recommendations, the manufacturer is not responsible for the incorrect operation of the device.

Rules of work with the device. Instrument setting.

Diagnosis is desirable to carry out at the same time. The most informative hours in terms of determining ovulation are in the morning, immediately after waking up, before brushing your teeth. You only need to rinse your mouth and after 5-10 minutes, take the saliva with the glass spatula included in the package, and put it on the sensor.
Setting the device “Vesta»
Since the device is designed for individual use, before using “Vesta” it must be pre-configured. This procedure is performed in the period from 2 to 5 days, counting from the first day of menstruation. To do this, apply saliva to the sensor, making sure that the saliva completely fills the recess in the sensor, if possible, without bubbles (wait until the bubbles settle), then press the settings button and release it.

If the red light flashes, there is no saliva or insufficient saliva. If the green lamp lights up, the saliva is enough and one can start the instrument setup.
As soon as you see the green indicator light, you need to press and hold the control button sharply until the green indicator starts to turn on periodically, and then release it. This will start the instrument setup process, as indicated by the rapid alternation of the indicators. When the setting is complete, the device will turn off automatically.
After adjustment, the device can be used for testing.
In some cases (bad saliva with bubbles, with solid inclusions, suspicious color, the presence at the setting time of ARVI) you will have to repeat the setting in accordance with the instructions in the passport. If, after the illumination of the green indicator light the red light turns on 5 times, this indicates a reduction in the functional state of organs and systems, and instrument setup is impossible.

Evaluation of the device readings. Possible situations when diagnosing the device " Vesta»

The device is designed for long-term trouble-free operation and can faithfully serve more than a dozen years, however, careful attitude and correct interpretation of the readings will allow for a little skill to quickly test and thereby indefinitely extend the life of the device. First of all, it is necessary to determine the so-called “ovulation window”, i.e. the beginning and end of ovulation or the period when the red led is lit. It can range from a few hours to 4-5 days for different women. Using the device readings, conduct your own research of your body for the purpose of conception or exclusion of unwanted pregnancy, namely:

In a healthy woman 1-2 menstrual cycles per year may be anovular (when ovulation is absent). The rest of the time in a healthy, especially young and healthy woman from 16 to 30 years, the schedule of the ovulation cycle on average is as follows:

where: X-menstrual days;

O-ovulation days;

o – days of no ovulation.

The graph shows that the device notes a hormonal peak, preceding ovulation 12th and 13th days. But the real beginning of ovulation will be only 1st-2nd days, that is, 14 or 15 of the normal 28-day menstrual cycle. 16 and 17 numbers correspond to the rapid decline in hormone levels after the day of ovulation and the transition to the period of absolute infertility from 18 to 1 number of the new menstrual cycle.

Ensure the normal functioning of Your ovaries by the presence of an “ovulations window ” using the instrument in 2-4 months. “Catch” the pre – ovulatory period, i.e. 2-3 days before ovulation-the days when the red led flashes 3 times to create favorable conditions for the development of the egg (for example: avoid stressful situations, alcohol, etc…).

Choose the menstrual cycle in which you intend to conceive a child, bearing in mind that the average duration of “life” of sperm is 2-3 days, but can in some cases reach 5-7 days with favorable conditions in the vagina. The ability of the egg to conceive is only a few hours, and only rarely reaches 1-2 days.

When planning conception, it should be considered the fact that the health of the unborn child depends significantly on the fullness of the germ cells, so you should avoid conception of “overripe” or “aging” of the egg at that time, since the increase in the time between the release of the egg (ovulation) and its fusion with the sperm can significantly reduce its ability to fertilize. This, in the future, can lead to miscarriage or abnormalities in fetal development.

Therefore, it is necessary to try to so that sexual intercourse always preced the moment of ovulation, ie, in those days when it was possible to fix the triple red glow of the led, especially it is essential for spouses who have a small life span sperm for some reasons.

Planning the sex of the future child is based on the correct choice regarding the ovulation day, day of sexual contact with the aim of conceiving a child of a certain sex.

American scientists Landran B. Shettles and David M. Rohr-Vic from Harvard University almost half a century devoted to the development of methods for choosing the sex of the future child at the time of entry into contact with respect to the day of ovulation. They found that spermatozoa carrying female genes with x chromosome are more viable and therefore live longer than those carrying male genes with Y chromosome, which are much smaller than the gene with x chromosome, more mobile than carriers of female genes, although the duratio

of their life, as a rule, does not exceed one day.

Using this phenomenon, the researchers determined that the average ejaculate contains more Y-bearing than X-bearing sperm. This advantage begins to be used, judging by the studies of B. Shettles, from the very first minutes after the sperm during the act enters the female genital tract, where the acidity of the vaginal secretions is significant and the X-sperm survived longer than the Y-sperm. But as the day of ovulation approaches, the secretions become more alkaline, increasing the probability of fertilization of the Y-sperm. Based on the above, it becomes clear that the most important point in the method of sex selection is the time at which sexual intercourse occurs in relation to the time of ovulation. If conception occurs 2-3 days before ovulation, when the environment in the vagina has a more acidic environment, then in more favorable conditions are hardy X-sperm and they die less waiting for the egg. It’s not about speed, it’s about endurance. If the conception is closer to ovulation, it is more likely to give birth to a boy. But in addition there are a number of additional conditions that somehow affect the sex of the unborn child, described in more detail on our sites.

Research scientists determined the probability of 80-85%.

The determination of the probable pregnancy at an early stage

The device “Vesta” has a greater sensitivity and allows you to identify the pregnancy that occurred after ovulation, in which fertilization of the egg occurred.

In a number of works of gynecologists (E. V. Shishova,

V. I. Shishov, I. E. Orange, N. L. Aslanyan, A. N. Khetagurova) it is shown that if there is fertilization of the egg in this particular ovulation cycle, the alkaline contents of cations in the saliva after ovulation remained high for 1-1,5 weeks. Then the chart of the menstrual cycle is as follows:

Women who had a normal menstrual cycle of 26-30 days and an ovulation cycle of 4-5 days, using the device “Vesta”, noticed that the indication of the presence of ovulation did not stop, but lasted much longer and the red indicator steadily burned with each test, whether in the morning or in the evening for one to one and a half weeks. Pregnancy test using strips, as a rule, is positive and in the future when referring to a gynecologist confirmed conception and pregnancy of a woman.

Protection from unwanted pregnancy

Since ancient times, mankind has sought ways to control fertility and prevent unwanted pregnancies. With the advent of the device “Vesta” this task is much easier, as it became possible to determine the most dangerous in terms of reproduction of the period of ovulation. Natural contraception contributes to the health of women, and the natural exclusion of conception corresponds to the moral principles of the world’s major religions. To exclude the possibility of conception, the following conditions must be observed, controlled by the device ” Vesta»:

a) Knowing from the observations of the previous 2 months the approximate location of the ovulation day in relation to the first day of menstruation (for example, on the chart it will be the 15th day) count 7 days before ovulation-it will be the 8th day of the menstrual cycle. Then, if you enter have sexual contact on the 7th, the probability of getting pregnant is negligible, since the opportunity to live up to the day of ovulation for sperm is very small. If, in the period from the 8th to 12th, when the green indicator is lit during testing, use contraceptives, then the probability of getting pregnant in this relatively infertile period will also be very small.

b) after Waiting 1-2 days after the day of ovulation, starting from the 18th, there are days of absolute infertility, until the day of the onset of a new menstruation. These days it is almost impossible to get pregnant.

However, even fulfilling all the conditions to give a 100% guarantee of complete contraception is impossible. American scientists believe that in about 6% of cases it’s still a possibility of pregnancy in these relatively infertile days. This is the power of the nature.

History and methods of contraception

Since Adam and eve, humanity has sought ways to control fertility and prevent unwanted pregnancies.
For centuries, people have tried to separate sex from conception. Back in 1850 BC, the Egyptians used substances that reduce the activity of sperm: it was honey, sodium carbonate, crocodile oats and others. Later they began to use cotton swabs moistened with an extract from the fermented acacia inflorescences. Disks of melted beeswax, waxed paper, seaweed were put in the vagina. Interrupted sexual intercourse used was practiced in ancient Africa.
A reusable condom was found in Tutankhamun’s tomb. American Indians, before the arrival of Europeans, used after intercourse, vaginal washing with the decoction of the bark of mahogany and lemon. The use of parsley, which was chewed by women, led to bleeding after 4 days. The Chinese used various substances placed in the uterine cavity, or mercury, which was injected into the vagina, for the same purpose. In Japan they used “kitan”, made of thin leather of bamboo leaf oil , which was placed in the outer mouth of the vagina, preventing sperms penetration.
Condom (condom) — the device from a sheep gut perfumed with refined aromas, — was named in honor of Kondoma-the court doctor of the English king Charles II who lived in the VII century.
It is believed that the first condom was created by the Italian anatomist Fallopius 100 years before, and the purpose of his invention was not so much to prevent pregnancy as protection from sexually transmitted diseases.
Gradually, with the development of science, the cyclic activity of the reproductive system was clarified, the mechanisms of folliculogenesis and steroidogenesis in the ovaries, the process of ovulation were determined. In the middle of the twentieth century there were hormonal drugs to suppress ovulatory mechanisms. In 1939, the gynecologist Perle (Pearl) proposed an index for the numerical expression of fertility and assessment of the effectiveness of contraceptives. The Pearl index is equal to the number of births within one year in 100 women using a particular method of contraception and characterizes its contraceptive effect.
The optimal choice of contraceptive is determined by the age and health of the woman, since the fertility of the woman depends on the age. So the frequency of pregnancy during the year of regular sexual life without use of contraception at the age of 20-25 years is 60-80 per 100 women, at the age of 30-35 is reduced to 25-50, and after 40 — to 5-15. The effectiveness of a method of contraception depends primarily on compliance with the rules of its application.
The use of contraceptives during periods of relative infertility in combination with the method of natural contraception using the device “Vesta” will give you almost 100% guarantee of protection against unwanted pregnancy
Barrier methods and spermicides
It is known that in recent years there has been a tendency to the increase of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). In Russia, about 1.5 million new cases of trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, ureaplasmosis, genital herpes and other STDs are registered annually. Contraceptive methods that protect against STDs include barrier methods (non-drug and medical) and spermicides.
Non-drug barrier agents as male and female condoms, vaginal diaphragms, cervical caps, are a mechanical barrier to the spread of sperm. Male and female condoms are one time use. Female condom is a cylinder, one end of which is closed and contains a locking ring. The open end has a ring, which is located in the area of the vulva and is introduced before sexual intercourse.
Medical barrier means contraceptive sponges, tampons, vaginal suppositories, creams containing a spermicidal agent. Like the diaphragm and neck cap are inserted into the vagina in advance of sexual intercourse. The action of the drug occurs immediately and lasts for 24 hours, during this period it is not necessary to change the tampon even with repeated sexual acts. You can remove the tampon not earlier than 2 hours after the last sexual intercourse and not later than 24 hours after its installation.
Spermicides
Benzalkonium chloride in the form of tablets and vaginal candles is administered no later than 5 minutes before sexual intercourse, and acts 3-4 hours, and in the form of cream is administered before sexual intercourse in the supine position with the help of an applicator-dispenser, the effect of the drug lasts for 10 hours. It acts at the same time as maildom and antiseptic, does not affect the normal vaginal microflora and the hormonal cycle. No adverse effects were detected during pregnancy. The active substance of the drug is not excreted in breast milk, so it is allowed to use during lactation. All vaginal irrigation or washing with soap and water is contraindicated, since soap destroys the active substance of the drug. When using the drug, the external toilet of the genitals is possible only with clean water or a foaming agent, but not with intravaginal agents containing soap. During the use of benzalkonium chloride preparations, including a tampon, it is not recommended to take a bath, or wash yourself in any reservoirs.
Any medicine can inactivate the drug.
Nonoxinol-9 in the form of vaginal candles is injected into the vagina 10 minutes before sexual intercourse for uniform distribution of the drug. It also has antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral and antiparasitic effects on a number of STD agents. Repeated sexual intercourse requires introduction of a new
candle. Currently, there are a lot of drugs with similar action.
Intrauterine devices
The use of intrauterine devices has a long history. Arabs injected a smooth stone into the uterus of a camel to prevent pregnancy. In ancient China and Japan, balls of silver were injected into the uterus. In 1909, the German gynecologist R. Richter began to enter into the uterine cavity for the purpose of contraception 2-3 silk threads twisted into a ring. In 1930, E. Graofenberg modified this ring by inserting a wire of silver and copper. In the 60s, thanks to the use of inert plastic in medical practice, polyethylene intrauterine devices such as Lipes loops (1965) were created, the introduction of which through the conductor did not require the expansion of the cervical canal. Later, medical IUD with copper was created, in the 80’s-with progesterone (Progestasert) with a release of 65 µg of the hormone per day. In the 90s, an intrauterine system was created with a release of 20 µg levonorgestrel per day (Mirena). Fertility returns to normal within 3-6 months after removal intrauterine device. The introduction is performed by a doctor from 1 to 7 days of the menstrual cycle, as well as after childbirth or abortion for up to 5 years. It is not recommended to introduce intrauterine devices to non-fertile women.

Hormonal contraceptives
Dating back to the 1960s, are used nowadays by more than 100 million women worldwide. Over the years, there have been multiple changes in the composition and use of hormonal contraceptives, most noticeable in combined oral contraceptives.
It should be noted that until now, there is no ideal method of contraception in the world that would suit any couple. For the right choice it is necessary to know the advantages and disadvantages, the mechanism of action and the rules of use of contraceptives. Throughout life, a person can use different methods depending on age, health status, number of children in the family, rhythm and characteristics of sexual life. For the right choice is necessary to consult a specialist in contraception.

Physiology of ovarian-menstrual cycle

At childbearing age, the female body differs from the male by cyclic changes in the concentration of sex hormones in the blood, which leads to rhythmic changes in the functioning of all organs.
The menstrual cycle is the period of time from the first day of one to the first day of the next menstruation. The duration of the menstrual cycle varies from woman to woman, but the average varies from 21 to 35 days. It is important that the duration of the menstrual cycle in a woman to be always about the same (± 3 days), that is, that the menstrual cycle was regular.
Menstruation is a blood flow from the female genital tract, the first day of which marks the beginning of a new menstrual cycle. First menstruation (menarche) usually happens at 12-14 years old. Normal menstruation lasts 3-7 days and 50-150 ml of blood is lost.
Physiology of the menstrual cycle
The whole system of regulation of the menstrual cycle is built on a hierarchical principle (the underlying structures are regulated by the overlying, which, in turn, react to changes in the lower levels) and consists of five levels. At the same time, the signals coming from the underlying structures correct the activities of the overlying ones.
The first level includes the so-called organs-targets, i.e. organs that are the end point of application of sex hormones produced by the ovaries. These include both organs of the female reproductive system (uterus, fallopian tubes, vagina) and other organs (mammary glands, skin, bones, adipose tissue). Interestingly, sex hormone receptors have also been found in the brain, which may explain the cyclical fluctuation of woman mentality during a menstrual cycle.
The second level includes the ovaries, which are responsible for the maturation of the egg and the synthesis of female sex hormones. At the beginning of each menstrual cycle in the ovary begins the process of maturation of the follicle, which is the egg. This follicle is called dominant, from the word “dominate” -to surpass in anything. Today, it is not clear why from the huge number of eggs in the ovary development begins with a concrete egg. During the maturation of the follicle, the ovary secretes into the bloodstream female sex hormones-estrogens and progesterone. In the first half of the menstrual cycle (follicle and new phase), the concentration of estrogen in the blood gradually increases and reaches its maximum by the time of ovulation — release of the egg from the follicle. In this case, there is a rupture of the wall of the dominant follicle, which can sometimes lead to pain and bleeding from the capillaries. From the dominant follicle is formed yellow body – that is the beginning of the second half of the menstrual cycle (luteal phase), the name of which is associated with the accumulation in its cells of a special yellow pigment. The yellow body secretes several sex hormones into the bloodstream, but the most important of them is progesterone, which is the second female sex hormone. Progesterone concentration in the second half of the menstrual cycle increases significantly. This hormone, along with other hormones, is responsible for the proper development of pregnancy. If it occurs, so the yellow body becomes really yellow and continues to function. If pregnancy has not occurred, then there is no need for further functioning of the yellow body and it is subject to reverse development (regression).
The third level includes the pituitary gland (more precisely, its anterior lobe — adenohypophysis) — a special internal secretion gland , if we may say so, “chief” of all other endocrine glands. The pituitary gland is located at the base of the brain and produces a number of important hormones, two of which directly regulate the work of the ovaries — follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteonizing hormone (LH). In another way, these two hormones are also called gonadotropins, given their effect on the ovaries (gonads). The main role of FSH in a woman’s body is stimulation of the dominant follicle growth in the ovary, as well as together with LH it ensures ovulation of the dominant follicle. The role of LH is to stimulate the synthesis of progesterone in the cells of the corpus luteum.
The pituitary gland secretes another important hormone for women: prolactin, which has a regulatory effect on the mammary glands function.
Over the pituitary gland in the literal and figurative sense is the hypothalamus — the structure of the brain that regulates the functioning of the pituitary gland. Hypothalamus refers to the fourth level of regulation of the menstrual cycle and consists of a cluster of nerve cells, some of which produce special hormones (releasing hormones), one of which, the so – called releasing hormone LH, has a direct effect on the synthesis of gonadotropins in the pituitary gland. A feature of the release of this hormone is its clear rhythm. It is released in a pulsating mode, forming a kind of “biological clock”, which causes the cyclicity of all processes in the body of a woman
Endometrial changes during the menstrual cycle’s
The uterus is the most important target-organ for sex hormones. It is a hollow muscular organ. The uterine cavity is lined with mucosa-endometrium, which is updated during each menstrual cycle.
Under the influence of cyclic fluctuations of sex hormones in the bloodstream in the endometrium, there are reciprocal transformations: in the first half of the menstrual cycle (follicle and new phase), under the influence of estrogens, the thickening of the functional layer occurs. In the second half (luteal phase) under the influence of progesterone there are specific transformations of the functional layer of the endometrium, conducive to further pregnancy.
If the pregnancy does not occur, the corpus luteum(yellow body) in the ovary undergoes reverse development, thus reducing the amount of sex hormones in the bloodstream. In response to this, and also due to the fact that the preparation of the endometrium for hatching sewing was in vain, there is a rejection of the functional layer of the endometrium-menstruation. Blood thus passes from the uterine cavity through the cervical canal into the vagina, and from there flows out.
Changes in other organs during the menstrual cycle
In the cervical canal, which connects the uterine cavity and the vagina, there are special glands that produce mucus. Most of the time, this mucus is thick and forms a so-called mucous plug. It is a physiological barrier and complicates the penetration of sperm into the uterine cavity, as well as bacteria and viruses, which often adhere to their surface. Twice during the menstrual cycle, namely during ovulation and menstruation, the mucus becomes more liquid and allows bacteria and viruses to penetrate into the uterine cavity much easier, which can lead to the development of inflammatory diseases of the female genital organs.
Most of women know well the “harbingers” of menstruation-changes in the skin (acne), pulling pain in the abdomen, the tension of the mammary glands. All of them are associated with the reaction of target-organs to cyclic fluctuations of sex hormones in the female body.

The role of potassium in human physiology. Determination of physiological properties decrease of an organism

One of the important indicators of the physiological state of the human body is the presence of full metabolic processes. The most important element of these processes is potassium. The presence of potassium and especially its concentration in human body fluids, including saliva, is a very important indicator of human health. This is due to the fact that potassium is involved in almost all metabolic processes and changes in its concentration leads to their violations, which is very dangerous for life. The device notes a decrease in potassium concentration in the human body below 5 mmol / liter.
The main feature of potassium metabolism is the long-established fact that the body does not create a potassium depot (there are no mechanisms for creating potassium reserves). Therefore, the definition of reducing the amount of potassium to the maximum possible level will help to properly build a diet and prevent the occurrence and development of many diseases associated with impaired potassium metabolism.
Potassium is the most important intracellular element, electrolyte and activator of a number of enzymes functions. Potassium is especially necessary for the” nutrition ” of body cells, muscle activity, including myocardium, maintenance of water-salt balance of the body, the neuroendocrine system.
Low potassium content usually indicates asthenia (mental and physical exhaustion, fatigue), impaired renal function and depletion of the adrenal glands, the risk of metabolic disorders and conduction in the myocardium, mitral valve prolapse, violation of the regulation of blood pressure, the development of erosive processes in the mucous membranes (ex., gastrointestinal tract: peptic ulcer, erosive gastritis), erosion of the cervix in women, sometimes diabetes, reduces efficiency, and also slows down the healing ran, disrupts neuromuscular conduction. Patients are often concerned about dry skin, dullness and weakness of the hair.
In women, potassium deficiency may be associated with cervical erosion, what may cause the threat of miscarriage and infertility. The development of potassium deficiency is most often associated with diseases of the kidneys, small intestine, endocrine system, fatigue, abuse of laxatives and diuretics, hypotensive and hormonal drugs, excessive intake of sodium (Na) and cesium (Cs).
Sexual contact to overtax the body, for women and men with reduced levels of potassium is very risky. Serious lesions, up to a heart attack or stroke can suddenly happen. Therefore, if the device is “Vesta” when testing shows a flashing red indicator, sign of reduction of functional state of organism and systems of the person, it is better to opt out at the moment from the intent to conceive a child. This applies to both men and women, and the preliminary adjustment of the device to the man is not required.
At the same time, it is necessary to avoid the joint use of one device by a man and a woman, since a relatively constant level of potassium in the body of a man can make a critical error in the calculations of the device relative to the time of ovulation in a woman. Valid can be considered the use of the device by man only in the period from the completion of ovulation (sustainable change is the inclusion of the red indicator to green) before the end of menstruation.
If during testing for several days the flashing of the red indicator persists steadily-it is necessary to consult your doctor about metabolic disorders in the body.
Here the most important thing is to prevent shortages of saliva on the sensor-analyzer and remove the bubbles, because the low content of saliva or bubles can also cause a flash red led for 5 sec. To verify this you need to add a little saliva to the sensor-analyzer so that it will be more than first time. If the physiological state is reduced, the red light will flash as before. If it is the amount of saliva under investigation, the green indicator will light up.
