Not Fertile: Simple dot patterns and lines indicate no ovulation. You are not fertile at this time.
Transitional: Small ferning patterns or crystal forms - appear among the spots and lines. Ovulation may occur in 3-4 days. At this time, conception is possible, though not yet likely.
Fertile: Strong ferning or crystal patterns dominate the sample. Ovulation is about to occur or already occurring. At this time, conception is likely. This is your most fertile time of the month. Conception is possible from between 5 days before to 24 hours after ovulation.

Q. Do those new Saliva-Based Ovulation Predictors work? Are they difficult to use?
A. According to preliminary data, they do seem to work as effectively as the conventional urine tests. The advantages are that they're less messy than urine kits and you can you them anywhere at any time. They are more expensive, about $60 a test kit compared to about $20 for the urine-based kits. But if you're tracking your cycle in an attempt to conceive, the newer test can be used multiple times for up to a year.

Questions and Answers about the Fertile-Focus Saliva Fertility Monitor
How does Fertile-Focus work?
Fertile-Focus detects hormone changes that occur prior to and during ovulation. As estrogen increases, "ferning" or crystal patterns can be viewed in dried samples of saliva. These patterns indicate that ovulation is about to take place. The duration of your most fertile time lasts from several days before ovulation to 24 or so hours after ovulation.
When do I test with Fertile-Focus?
Test on a daily basis and record results on a fertility chart or calendar. Test first thing in the morning - but never after eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. These activities may interfere with results. If you test later in the day, try to wait at least two hours after eating or drinking.
Is Fertile-Focus accurate?
When instructions are followed, ovulation microscopes are 98%* accurate for predicting ovulation. Accuracy has been established by medical researchers.
Can a Saliva Fertility Monitor / Microscope be used as a contraceptive device?
Ovulation microscopes should not be used as a contraceptive device. See your doctor if you have any questions.
