Title (EN) METHOD FOR IDENTIFYING AN OVULATION PHASE WITHIN A MENSTRUAL CYCLE OF A WOMAN
(FR) METHODE D"IDENTIFICATION D"UNE PHASE D"OVULATION DANS UN CYCLE MENSTRUEL CHEZ UNE FEMME
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The polarity of a potential difference between two spaced apart portions (36, 36) of the body of a woman is measured by a voltage meter (16) is repeatedly measured on each day throughout at least a substantial portion of the days of a menstrual cycle for identifying an ovulation phase within the menstural cycle of a woman. The days in which the measurements indicate at least two readings of opposite polarity are identified as days immediately preceding the time of ovulation of the woman. The required sensitivity for accurate potential measurements is provided by electrodes (24, 24) and circuit (18) and the inconvenience of prior intravaginal electrodes is also overcome by the disclosed electrodes and circuitry.
(FR)La polarite d"une difference de potentiel entre deux parties espacees (36, 36) du corps d"une femme est mesuree par un voltmetre (16) de maniere repetee, chaque jour pendant au moins une majeure partie des jours d"un cycle menstruel pour identifier une phase d"ovulation dans le cycle menstruel d"une femme. Les jours ou les mesures indiquent au moins deux lectures de polarites opposees sont identifies comme des jours precedant immediatement la periode d"ovulation. La sensibilite requise pour des mesures precises du potentiel est obtenue par des electrodes (24, 24) et un circuit (18) et l"inconvenient que presentaient les electrodes intra-vaginales de la technique anterieure est egalement elimine par ces electrodes et ce circuit.
