What is the myLotus fertility and ovulation tracker?
myLotus is a personalised fertility tracker that measures and analyses the precise levels of Luteinising Hormone (LH) in your pee to spot the days you are most likely to ovulate. It gives 99% accurate* lab-standard test results for a clear idea of when you need to get busy. And – unlike other methods – it works for women who have tricky cycle issues like irregular periods, PCOS or anovulatory cycles (where you don’t always ovulate).

Clear, personalised results
Just 12% of women have a 28 day cycle. And lots of us ovulate early, late, or not every month. And that’s all absolutely fine. But when you’re trying to get pregnant, it’s really important to get to grips with what your normal is, so you can identify the best days to try to conceive. The secret to it is forgetting Ms Average, and focusing on your own personal fertility patterns. And the key to all that is tracking your LH levels.
LH – Luteinising Hormone – is one of two hormones that encourages your ovaries to release an egg. LH usually surges up to 6 days before you ovulate. But here’s the thing – not all women’s surges look the same. Some experience a sharp spike, others a more gradual increase, others are ‘biphasic’. Some are high, some are low. Luckily for you, myLotus tracks all patterns and levels, learning what’s normal for you, then telling you exactly when your surge is at its peak. Then it’s time to get busy – there’s likely to be an egg ready to be fertilised.
Why myLotus works for irregular periods
Irregular periods – medically speaking – are rarer than we all think. In fact, it’s totally normal to have a cycle that is anywhere between 24 to 38 days. They’re only counted as ‘irregular’ if they’re outside this window, or if your cycle length varies more than 20 days from month to month. But if your cycle is long or short, or varies from month to month, it can be hard to identify when you might be ovulating. That’s when a personalised LH tracking plan comes in. myLotus can spot your surge, and give you the nod to get busy – whether that’s on day 9 or day 19!
Why myLotus works for anovulatory cycles
Anovulatory cycles are months when you don’t ovulate. It’s a thing – but perhaps a thing not many of us know much about. In fact, anovulatory cycles are quite common, and can be caused by stress, extreme exercise, big changes to life and routine, hormone imbalances, and if you’re at a very high or low body weight.
If you’ve been trying for a while, ruling out anovulatory cycles can be a good idea – and myLotus can help with that. As well as spotting surges when you’re likely to ovulate, it will also flag that that you might not be ovulating, so you can make lifestyle changes to get as close as possible to your peak fertility zone, then seek medical help if conception still isn’t happening.
