Getting pregnant is not always the “drink some wine, hop in the sack, and pray” technique it used to be.

These days, getting pregnant can come down to an exact science, and for couples trying to conceive, technology can make all the difference.

Take a look at some of these little-known technologies that can actually help couples looking to welcome a new addition to their families!

The Eeva Test

As most couples trying to conceive know, there is a very short window for actually getting pregnant every month. Contrary to what some people think, a woman is fertile only a few days of month, so technology that can help her pinpoint her most fertile days can help her plan for intimacy on those days and increase her chances of getting pregnant.

However, data collection can be hard, and let's face it — it can ruin the mood. So one interesting piece of technology aims to make the process easier for women. You simply insert the OvuRing once a month, and it automatically collects and analyzes data right on your phone, easily showing you your most fertile times of month.

KNOWHEN(R) Saliva Fertility Monitor

While most apps and monitors use data that tracks a woman's temperature fluctuations to pinpoint her most fertile times, this fertility monitor does things a bit differently. It uses — wait for it — your spit. Apparently, the salt in a woman's saliva actually changes when she ovulates, so the Saliva Fertility monitor gives you the tools you need to spit on a slide, look at it under a microscope, and see for yourself if you are ovulating. Crazy.
