A deep dive into the science of Tempdrop 🚤

We’ve had some questions from you around the science of Tempdrop and how it compares with some of the other options out there, so we decided to do a deep dive into everything that goes into Tempdrop’s machinery.

Tempdrop monitors all of the important data points that factor into fertility, including sleep patterns, irregular cycles and, of course, sleeping temperature. Thanks to continuous axillary temperature and accelerometer measurements, Tempdrop collects and analyzes thousands of data points throughout the night to give you a clear picture of your fertility, even if you’re a light sleeper or have an irregular period. How clear? This clear:

This is from a study we conducted involving university students, nurses, working women and working moms. With an algorithm developed by top engineers and software developers, Tempdrop learns minute temperature variations resulting from hormonal fluctuations throughout the ovulatory cycle (e.g. Estrogen, Progesterone) and will identify recurring patterns up to 5 days before ovulation.

But the real beauty of Tempdrop is that you can wake up whenever you want and you don’t have to do anything extra. Plus, you can integrate the data with the app of your choice, the battery lasts for months, and there’s no radiation or anything icky while you sleep. Tempdrop is manufactured by a medical supplier according to the strictest quality standards and the plastic is even BPA free.

If that wasn’t enough, Tempdrop is backed by some of the top leaders in the field:

  • Talithia Williams, Chief Scientist - You may have watched Talithia on TED talk about the insights she gained on her own fertility from tracking her BBT every day for over 6 years. But with a Ph.D. in Statistics, Dr. Williams is first and foremost a mathematician, making sense of numbers and what they can tell us about our body and health. In addition to her academic accomplishments, Dr. Williams and her husband, Donald, actively teach Natural Family Planning methods (NFP).

  • Dr. Joseph Hasson, Specialist in Gynecology, Obstetrics & Infertility. Dr. Hasson is an attending physician at the IVF & Infertility Center in Tel Aviv Medical Center and also served as a Clinical & Research fellow at the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at McGill’s University Reproductive Center in Canada.

But science and unprecedented accuracy aside, Tempdrop is the most comfortable and affordable option out there. Designed with the input of a lingerie designer, you’re going to forget it’s there, and it’s not going to break the bank.
