The Short Version: Tempdrop has developed a health sensor that is so easy you can use it in your sleep — in fact, that’s what it was made for. Women wear the sensor at bedtime, and it silently tracks their sleep patterns and takes their temperature. This data can sync automatically with the Tempdrop app or other charting platforms. Thanks to Tempdrop, single and coupled women can closely monitor their fertility cycles and make an informed choice when it comes to their health and pregnancy planning.

In 2013, Tempdrop created the first wearable basal body temperature sensor that takes the wearer’s measurements while she sleeps. Its data offers an important piece to the fertility puzzle and can help women identify when they are ovulating.

The Tempdrop sensor fits comfortably on a woman’s arm as she sleeps.

Tempdrop currently combines smart sensors and algorithms to accurately measure and track body temperature and sleep. It offers a high-tech solution for women who want to track their menstrual cycle for health and fertility.

In December 2020, Tempdrop expanded its ability to help women track their fertility. The company expanded their app capabilities to provide charting and symptom features. The app, which pairs with its sensor, charts a person’s sleeping temperature night after night. The data can reveal monthly patterns that indicate when ovulation begins and ends. The app is available for free download on Google Play and the Apple App Store. There is also a premium option with fertility predictions for a small fee.

“We’re not just providing a sensor anymore, but an all-in-one solution for temperature tracking,” explained Gemma Rigby, who is part of the company’s marketing team and uses Tempdrop for her own body knowledge.

Tempdrop can integrate with other charting apps and fertility trackers, but its tailored app provides the most seamless user experience. These two tools work hand in hand to provide single women and couples the information they need to move forward with their family planning.

“It gives us a lot more insight and informs our research,” Gemma said. “For the future, it means we’re learning a lot more about women’s health and fertility.”

A Natural Way to Monitor the Body’s Ovulation Cycle

Tempdrop has the ability to connect the dots when it comes to fertility tracking and use temperature as the key to unlock the secrets of a woman’s cycle. Women can use the data to pinpoint ovulation days or period days. It can be helpful for a single woman with an irregular menstrual cycle, and it can be crucial for couples trying to conceive a child naturally.

The company’s patented temperature sensors come with a warranty of at least a year and a free sensor replacement guarantee. All packages include free international shipping.

Customers can choose to manually record and track the temperature data in their favorite charting app, or they can use Tempdrop’s charting app that syncs with the temperature sensor via Bluetooth. The Tempdrop app launched a few months ago to make the recording process easier than ever and provide important insights regarding women’s health and fertility.

Tempdrop has a temperature sensor and app to monitor cyclical fluctuations in women’s health.

After 14 days of consistent data collection, Tempdrop’s filtering variable starts to provide the most accurate reading possible, even during sleepless nights or illness. Using the data tempdrop gives them, women can identify their nightly and monthly patterns in the temperature readings. The app can also interpret the data to provide real-time fertile window estimates and verification.

By using Tempdrop, women can get a handle on when they are most fertile and use that information to support their pregnancy goals — or lack thereof.

Gemma said the Tempdrop team is working hard to improve the user experience on the app and add more features that support accurate fertility tracking. In the past few weeks, the team enabled a manual interpretation option for an experienced fertility awareness user.

“We’re really trying to listen to what users want and address what’s most important to them,” she said. “We’ve been steadily releasing new features each month.”

A Smart Sensor With a Potentially Life-Changing Impact

Tempdrop is in business to change lives and raise awareness about women’s health. The company’s Facebook page shares educational posts and answers common questions regarding IVF, menstrual periods, ovulation, and other fertility-related topics. The team also shares testimonials from its customers to show how impactful the temperature sensor and app can be.

Singles have written that they have used the temperature-tracking toolkit as a way to understand their bodies and avoid pregnancy without having to go on a pill and mess with their hormones.

Some of the most glowing reviews come from couples who had tried IVF in the past and then switched to using Tempdrop to conceive naturally.

“I sleep better, I temp better, and now that I’m pregnant, I’m still using TD every night, just because I love the data!” said a woman in Marlborough, Massachusetts. “Additionally, right now we’re in the middle of the COVID pandemic and it’s nice to confirm each morning that I don’t have a fever.”

Rebecca B. said she began using Tempdrop five months after giving birth. She had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), so she wanted all the help she could get trying for a second child. After three months, Rebecca was able to confirm the return of her natural fertility cycle.

“Tempdrop is so easy to use and just works,” Rebecca said. “I’d definitely say it has been for me! It’s giving me a window into my health and my body that I couldn’t have otherwise and is helping me to be the healthiest I can be.”

Elizabeth S. ordered the Tempdrop sensor to monitor fluctuations in her fertility cycle after giving birth. “Knowing when I ovulate has helped me and my husband immensely post-partum,” she said. “The temp-drop has been very reliable and easy to use.”

Tempdrop focuses on providing trustworthy health data without disrupting a single woman’s routine. The wearable technology makes the nightly temperature checks more accessible to busy professionals, young mothers, and all types of health-conscious women.

After a year of using Tempdrop, Debra had nothing but good things to say about the sensor. “Love my Tempdrop and I feel glad to have it,” she wrote. “While I haven’t gotten pregnant with Tempdrop, I would recommend it to anyone with PCOS wanting to learn more about their cycle. I’ve learned so much and it has helped me have better conversations with fertility doctors.”

Tempdrop: More Knowledge Leads to Healthier Choices

Tempdrop is all about putting reliable information into a single woman’s hands so she can make her own determinations when it comes to health and family planning. The thermometer pairs with the app to ensure hassle-free fertility tracking. Some single women use these tools to naturally avoid an unwanted pregnancy, while other couples are interested in tracking ovulation to increase their odds of having a baby.

Gemma said the fertility industry is currently seeing a generational shift in how women tackle horomone health and fertility issues. Many young women feel empowered to gather information, assess multiple options, and make their own choice. Tempdrop has become an ally in the search for knowledge, and Gemma said she hopes to see its efforts result in greater fertility awareness and planned pregnancies.

“We want women to know their body, and we want them to make an informed decision for their health and fertility,” she said.
