Q&A Index > Fertility Friend Interpretation Methods
How does Fertility Friend make its interpretations?
Fertility Friend uses a combination of fertility awareness (refined) and cutting-edge research based on our own experience with diverse charting situations to give you an enhanced chart interpretation method.Accurate and Reliable:
The interpretation of your chart is based on its pattern and all the signs you enter. This enhanced method, incorporated into our advanced ovulation detector allows Fertility Friend members to benefit from the hundreds of thousands of ovulation patterns that we have observed and analyzed over the past several years. The advanced detector identifies an extensive range of chart patterns and is able to simultaneously account for multiple fertility signs and charting situations to give you the best interpretation based on all the data you enter.Flexible Interpretation and Analysis:
By default FertilityFriend.com is configured to use the Advanced detector which is the most accurate and the most reliable for most situations. In addition to this setting users with more experience in chart interpretation can tune their method or use alternate interpretation methods depending on their situation (see "Choosing your interpretation method" for help selecting the appropriate method).
Here's how it works and why you find four different detectors in the fine-tuning section on the analysis page of Fertility Friend:
The whole purpose of chart interpretation is to understand, from external fertility signs, what your body is doing and to reflect that on a chart. This is not always an easy task and is one that sometimes requires some flexibility. In some cases, your fertility signs are not always giving a fully clear and fully correlated picture. This may be due to special conditions, less than ideal charting habits, or your unique hormonal profile.
Fertility Friend analyzes thousands of charts each day, offering a unique perspective on interpretation methods and endless opportunities for ongoing refinements.
