@healthoutsidethebox has been tracking and hacking her biology. Her latest chart is that of her fertility cycle which she measured her basal body temperature and changes in cervix fluid. She made use of the Kindara app to produce the above chart.
I have now tracked one full fertility cycle and this is my first chart. By measuring my basal body temperature and track the changes in cervix fluids I can determine when I’m fertile and not. P shows my peak day, my most fertile day. I’m using the app Kindara and I follow the rules partly from FAM (Fertility Awareness Method) and the Billings method. Conclusion: I don’t need to use hormone interfering contraceptives. Instead, I can follow the natural rhythm of my body. An empowering feeling!
Of course there is WINK (shown above) which will automatically upload basal body temperature and a time stamp to the Kindara App.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
