Birth Control: Femometer 3(ish) Month Update

Hey cupcakes! If you have been following me for quite some time, you will know that I have recently started using the Femometer as a form of birth control. I have been using this basal body thermometer for about 3 months now, so I wanted to update you all with what I am loving and not loving about this product in case any of you are thinking of using this product as well. 😊

What I'm (Still) Loving
-As I mentioned in my 1 Month Update post, this adds about 30 seconds to my daily routine, which made it super easy to incorporate to my morning routine. The product is also quite easy to use, and I have never had a hard time figuring out how to work the thermometer or the app.

-The more I have been using the thermometer and tracking my temperatures, the more I have been able to understand when my period is about to start, when I will be ovulating, etc. As someone who tends to break out with large pimples a few days before my period, this is AWESOME information because I am able to take preventative measures and treat my skin extra special so that my breakouts are minimal. Also, this allows me to increase my iron intake before my period as I tend to run low on it as I bleed. Basically, this product is a great way to better understand my body!! 😍

What I'm Not Loving So Much
-After about a month and a half of using the thermometer, the battery needed to be changed (a positive is that the app keeps track of the battery for you and lets you know when to change it!). I think it might have been because the thermometer was older or something, as the battery should have lasted a lot longer. However, this was an easy fix - I bought a new battery and it is still at three of three bars (so I should be set for quite some time!).

-The Femometer device instructions said that it should be able to record over a hundred temperature readings, but it didn't record one of the days last week... Which is kind of annoying but not a big deal. Because I like to see where my daily temps are relative to the previous day, I tend to sync up my Femometer to the app as part of my morning routine. This ensures that I know what is going on in my cycle. However, it is frustrating that it does not remember the data points if you forget to sync for the day.

Overall, I have been loving this device, and I would recommend all of you to start tracking your basal body temperatures... Even if you aren't going to use it as a form of birth control, it is a really great way to monitor your body - I have learned so much about my cycle that I never knew before!
