A new NFP gadgetBy Marc • Dec 14th, 2005 • Category: ProLife, the Church
Do you need more technology to help with NFP? I know some of you know what “NFP” means. It’s a Catholic thing I know. I could go into a lengthy explanation of why artificial contraception is wrong, but that’s for another post. This post is to introduce a new gadget that could help with NFP. It was produced in Japan with the intent of helping couples who are trying to get preggy determine when the wife’s fertile time is. Obviously, if it helps determine the fertile days, then it will also help determine the infertile days. I could see where this would be very useful for a couple legitimately using NFP.
Not only does it measure a woman’s absolute exact body temperature, but presents it as a 12-day graph on the display. It works in 30 seconds, and remembers up to 480 days worth of results. What if it’s nighttime and you are all snuggled up in bed ready to, uh, procreate? The Woman C has a backlight, and an alarm too (although I don’t think the alarm is smart enough to sound-off when you are ovulating—that would be the ultimate).
It will be available in Japan starting December 16th for US $58.
It’s kind of pricey, but it is feature rich. Of course we are having to take Gizmodo’s word for it since the product page they link to is in Japanese. Anyone out there have any Japanese and can read that page?
