I've been using this for about five months postpartum and was able to easily detect my second temp shift/ovulation this month. It was a bit tedious in the beginning as I waited for my cycle to return, but I hadn't tracked temps since my very early days of NFP 15 years ago b/c it was so hard in the postpartum period. I'm really grateful for how easy this is and how well it has worked for me.
#1 migrating your history to a new smartphone
#2 for users w very heavy bleeding who need to keep track of blood lost, we need some "changes counter" that can track the type (pad, tampon, cup, etc) and number of times changed during each day
Thanks for the valuable feedback.
#1. All Tempdrop data is stored on the secure server which means it is all there if you switch phones. Simply log into the app using the same account credentials.
#2. We will be adding additional features to the charting app so be sure to stay tuned. A notes feature is coming very soon to keep track of custom symptoms.
I used to temp orally and was so bad at doing it every day. Now I'm breastfeeding a little one all night and would not have accurate temps if not for Tempdrop. With the new arm band I've been getting really reliable temps. Love the ease of use.
I bought my Tempdrop a couple of years ago and have been using it on and off (got pregnant and had a baby). I've only had cosmetic issues with it (button peeling, frame breaking), which is pretty common. I don't really care for the band it comes with, so I bought a third party one that makes it way more comfortable. I know they are trying to improve their product all the time though. I appreciate that they always send out updates via Facebook and email. Overall, it's a nice, convenient thermometer that helps me in my tracking journey!
So glad I got this for postpartum BBT tracking. I would never be able to track oral BBT with irregular night sleep with a baby. The reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is because the algorithm changes the previous two temps every time you sync. This means when I get my regular cycle back and am using to track to avoid pregnancy, I will have to wait an extra two days to confirm the ovulation temp shift.
So glad I decided to finally buy tempdrop, I contemplated it for months but was not thrilled with the price for a thermometer - but with a newborn waking up at night giving inconsistent readings I decided it was time and I wish I had made the switch sooner! No more trying to decide if I should prewarm or take the first temp - tempdrop gives an accurate reading no matter how rough of a night it is for us.
The small size is too big for my arm. My charts are uneven after months of use because it never stays in place.
Sorry to hear you have some concerns. We hope you will contact our support team for a review and resolutions. Please email support@temp-drop,com.
So glad I came across this product! Such a cute, little device. Am postpartum, so manual BBT monitoring is just not possible with a 4.5 month old.
So far so good!! Super easy to use and sync with your phone. I definitely recommend! Customer service is also amazing. Thanks guys!
Only negative, is the armband. It isn't the most comfortable thing to wear and digs in a bit. But you do get used to it though.
Very very thankful to have this in my life! Makes reading temps for FAM much much simpler and actually feasible. Would recommend this highly to anyone interested in FAM. DO have to sync to their app, which works fine. Mine has lasted about 2.5 years so far with no breakage, a couple of battery changes per year.
-An ON SWITCH would be nice (vs the somewhat difficult-to-push button). Do like the sleek profile of the teardrop shape, though.
-VISUAL- being able to see the temp for the day (or previous 3) on the device would be awesome for me (wouldn't have to wait for it to sync, would save me a couple of minutes each dayv). I use my own spreadsheet, so the syncing part feels like a drag. I'm assuming it's a slight drag for anyone not using their app as their main chart (most people).
I purchased a Tempdrop to be able to better chart my cycles for PCOS and for hopefully conceiving a baby. It seemed to track my temperatures accurately despite multiple night wakings, and before the month was out, I was able to use the data to fall pregnant! I'm not using it now (pregnant) but looking forward to picking it back up when I deliver this baby to better keep track of my cycles. I'm so glad I found Tempdrop!
I started using my Tempdrop at 5 months postpartum with PCOS and have now been using it for 3 months. I love it!
I’ve been able to temp consistently and get stable numbers when though my sleep is very disturbed by frequent night feeds, I’ve been able to confirm the return of my fertility, and hopefully will be able to use TD to conceive baby #2 next year!
TD is so easy to use and just works, there is no way I’d be able to have starting temping again with a baby this young without it and believe me, I tried but my temps were just too inconsistent and VERY questionable.
If you’re questioning whether to get it and whether the cost is worth it, 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 - your cycle is 100% a vital sign of health, don’t ignore it.
I love the ease of being able to wear the thermometer. I sleep all over the bed, and sometimes I would wake up too much, just trying to get back to my side of the bed to get my oral thermometer. This is a great solution! The app would be at least 50% better if it would graph the last 30 days instead of just listing the temps. And I don't understand why after 60 days, it's still changing previous days' temperatures. Shouldn't the algorithm have figured things out by now? It's the best wearable thermometer on the market, but I wonder how long it will stay that way if the app stays the way it is.
Works exactly like it is advertised, great for use while breastfeeding. My temps line up with MM testing and it's great to have the extra confirmation of ovulation while TTA! Thanks Tempdrop!
I am so glad I got this device. I didn't think I could temp because you have to wake up at the exact same time every day and remember to take your temperature before doing anything else in the morning. That is so restrictive. The TempDrop armband took some getting used to and a few nights of it either falling off or cutting off my circulation, but once I got it right it's been fantastic. The app is also nice and simple and easy to use. I just wish it automatically synced with Fertility Friend.
I bought this after my first postpartum period had returned and with night nursing and waking through the night still with my 16 month old, i knew i couldn't rely on using my regular bbt thermometer.
I actually purchased it to try and pinpoint ovulation and to see if i was having ovulatory cycles yet. Well to my surprise, i did ovulate, i wasn't practicing prevention because we have always had trouble conceiving in the past. Well i am currently about 6 weeks pregnant, even though we weren't trying to conceive yet, it is an exciting surprise and i feel blessed to not have to go through years of trying again.
So i plan on using this after i give birth, being so easy to use, don't have to worry about waking up to take my temp and can have all my data synced.
The only thing i wish it had was the ability to sync with other charting apps. I use fertility friend and had to manually transfer them over, which isn't a huge deal but when the temperatures update over time you have to make sure to go in and change them.
We ordered the temp-drop to help us be more confident as my cycle regulated post-partum. Knowing when I ovulate has helped me and my husband immensely post-partum. The temp-drop has been very reliable and easy to use.
The Tempdrop has been a game changer for post-partum charting. Even though I wake up multiple times a night, I can trust the Tempdrop readings. It’s comfortable and simple to use.
Really helped to chart my cycle properly, easy to use and super convenient!
This is amazing. I have never had such accurate readings with oral temp takers and so this is definitely better and more efficient for me.
It's very convenient I dont have to wake up at the same time every morning... just wear and sync. My only daily question is whether it's in the right place as this can affect the result. It takes getting use to.
I think this device is nice. The main issue I have with it is I don't think it takes my temp at the same time, which is needed. And it would also be nice for the app to tell me which time the temp was recorded. Those are easy for me to work with. The real problem is the armband. I would love to see the armband have a silicone or rubber holder for the device. Or even have plastic with rounded edges. It would make a world of a difference. Laying on the side with the band is a bit uncomfortable. And it would probably hold the device better as the current one doesn't do that so well and I'm worried that it will fall out before making it to the nightstand. I would like to see a rechargeable version.
While that was all negative, in the grand scheme of things, I think it is a good product. It is much easier to remember before bed, than after waking up.
