Fertility Software the New Face of Natural Family Planning

The developer of new fertility management software says it is becoming the “new face” for natural family planning. It can assist couples in conceiving or in avoiding pregnancy…

“FertileView strengthens marriages and supports the natural order for marriage,” said Tim Boh, owner of the Colorado-based software developer Novuscor.

Novuscor’s FertileView software collects “very specific” information about ovulation and fertility that allows women to understand “exactly what their bodies are doing” in a way that is “uniquely supporting to the individual,” Boh told CNA in a recent interview. The program helps women and their husbands structure their actions around their “fertility goals.”

Users of many fertility monitoring systems, in his view, feel like they are not involved.

“They don’t understand what they’re doing,” he said. “We’ve created a process by which people can have immediate feedback about themselves. That’s the part, I think, that people get really excited about.”

The FertileView software handles the interpretation portion of fertility monitoring. Users only need to be trained in fertility observation. They can enter the information into the program and don’t have to use the “stickers and dots” of the standard natural family planning class.

“We can literally train people on our method in 45-50 minutes,” Boh said.

He explained that FertileView captures biomedical data for each user and creates an individual cycle program for each woman. The more she uses FertileView, the more data is compiled about her cycle.

The software pinpoints a woman’s ovulation and predicts the best time to achieve pregnancy, helping to address fertility issues.

The software comes amid widespread contraceptive use…

Although many people are contracepting, Boh said, “they’re not all happy about it either.” …
