I read reviews on this product and was curious whether it would work for me. It does. I have found that the more saliva I use, the easier it is to read the results. One just has to remember that the slide must be completely dry in order to work. Work with the sight adjustment until you see something. The non-fertile time looks like a messy bunch of dots, however you will definitely know when you see the ferning pattern. I have cleaned the slide by water and gently dabbing (not rubbing) a softer towel over the lens, no scratching.

I am a microbiologist, so I love anything remotely related to science and microscopes. This device is worth the money.

I bought this to try to get pregnant. Quite simple to use, easy to clean, easy to read results. You need about five minutes to take this test. Every morning you put a dab of saliva (making sure the saliva has no bubbles) on the microscope and let it dry. Pop the scope back into the lens and press the light. You can immediately see a fernlike pattern if you are ovulating. I am happy to report I conceived the second month I was using this product.

I used this again for my third child. Worked like a charm to predict ovulation. One really amazing thing I tried this time. I read that certain hormones responsible for the ferning pattern (ovulating hormones I think it is a LH surge) are also the same that remain consistent if your body is carrying a fertilized egg. Every morning after the day I ovulated (and believed I may be pregnant) I used the test to see if the ferning pattern was somewhat visible (not a total ferning, but something in between) after 2 weeks of this, I was very confident I was pregnant. Sure enough,I confirmed it with a pregnancy test!

I think those who have trouble seeing this aren't using it properly. Be sure you remove the entire lense (the WHOLE black piece) without unscrewing it. Just pull it straight out. When it is removed properly, you will be able to see the empty container and the little green light inside. The saliva goes on the flat, uncupped, interior end closest to the light. To clean, just run the lense piece under warm water and let air dry until next use. You can check for lint or water residue by holding it up to a regular light.

I have learned how to change the batteries in it! After removing it from the outter case and removing the scope lens, Take a pair of tweezers or a toothpick (being careful not to hit the bulb) and push down. And the battery compartment slides right out :)

I bought this microscope a year ago to begin tracking my cycles. I wanted something that would be more environmentally friendly than OPK (urine testers), which are thrown away each month. I had also used a basal thermometer, which I hated.

Pros:
-easy to use, just pull out the lens, lick or spit on it, let it dry, slide it in and press the light to see. You don't have to focus it each time as long as you don't turn the screw between the lens and the magnifier, which will change the focus.
-ferning pattern is obvious and distinctive. I'm not sure what those people are doing who can't get it to work-- it's not that hard.
-no waste

Cons:
-battery and bulb are not replaceable. If either one dies, you're buying a new microscope.
-my case cracked after a few months of use. (It's still usable.)
-PLEASE NOTE, a positive test does NOT necessarily mean that you are ovulating that day or even the next day. You can get a positive ferning test as far as 5 days before ovulation. That's not very accurate. So, please, don't rely on this thing exclusively to track the timing of your ovulation.

After a year I am still using this microscope, but more as a back up. For really tracking my cycles accurately and knowing definitively when I ovulate I rely on disposable OPK sticks that you dip into a cup of urine. (Yes, in spite of the waste they generate.)

As a scientist, I was extremely excited to get this little microscope at first. Then I realized a big problem that makes this microscope not reliable to monitor ovulation. Here is why:
The salt (technically sodium chloride) concentration in a woman's saliva increases when she is about to ovulate. When the concentration is high enough, it will form massive fern crystal pattern on the microscope --- that is what we see. The problem is: when a saliva drop dries on the microscope, it is uneven. So there is always this final tiny bit of saliva with very concentrated salt in there, and that is where we will always see the fern pattern even when the overall salt concentration is low in the saliva to begin with. That is why at times when it cannot possibly be ovulation, we can still see some fern patterns along the edge of the microscope, where the saliva dries the final drop.
Now, how to make that to work properly? The answer is to use the same amount of saliva for every test and only look at the central area of the microscope, because the saliva drops typically dry at the edge.
Overall, I find it interesting, but would not solely rely on this method to predict the ovulation because the results can be artificial for the reasons above.
