About 8 or so years ago, I purchased this little hand held microscope type thing that allowed you to check your salive (or CM) to see if you were fertile. Basically, you put a sample on one end, and then you held it up to the light or there may have even been a little battery powered light. From what I remember, the key was looking for "fern" shapes. I got pregnant the first month after I bought it... and then it got lost in moving. I never really used it long enough to see if it worked... but I'm interested in getting another one. I think I bought it through Gaiam (although they had a different name back then) or some other such catalog. I want to say it was in the $40-60 range.
Does anybody know what I'm talking about? What are the Brand names?
Do they work or has this theory been debunked?
