Would would great for set sleep schedules.

I am rating for my experience, and the product. Our Ovacue "died" so we are using the ibasil until we have enough money to get a new ovacue. I am a pcos woman and using an Rx to help us ovulate, but doing timed intercourse. We have been using the ibasil thermometer for 6 mos now.
The ibasil is nice in the fact that it beeps to wake you to temp.
Set up was confusing and I'm not sure how it already put me into the next cycle without a period to go back to day 1.
It doesn't work well if you are up a few times at night with a kiddo. Wish you could temp without the alarm for the nights you get 5+ hours of sleep in a row, but later than normal. I feel it takes my temp but it can't be accurate due to interrupted sleep.
I am saying yes to recommend at the bottom, but only if that person has uninterrupted sleep patterns. Anyone with a schedule that needs a little flexibility to it, stick to a regular bbt thermometer.
Pros:Alarm to wake you up to temp is nice.
Nice that you can make little notes with it and it stores it all.
Nice size to carry if traveling.
Cap covers the tip to protect from dusts.
Toddler proof for when she grabs it (and you yell "no no no that's momma's....put it down"), she can't take an accidental reading.
Cons:Wish it took AAA batteries vs. coin batteries.
It never turns off to sleep. Always show time on face and etc data.
You must take temp at same time or it won't let you take it later. You're out of luck if you had to go tuck someone back in bed an hour before it goes off.
Until you learn what buttons mean what or do what, you need the directions to program or add notes.
