My Ava Bracelet: Understanding Your Body and Fertility
If you’ve been around me throughout the last year, you know that I read the book Woman Code and became so interested in the world of women’s hormones. As a woman, I honestly had only ever heard hormones discussed in relation to moodiness or “that time of the month”, and I had no idea that hormones literally control so many of our body processes and undergo a full cycle each month.
In my Functional Medicine grad program, I’ve been able to dive deeper into this knowledge, and I’ve learned so much about the dangers of hormonal birth control, as well. While I totally believe that every woman is entitled to make her own birth control decisions, I think far too many people never do the research to learn about the HUGE downsides of putting a foreign object or medication into your life for years…or even decades.
With this new knowledge under my belt, I have been looking for different ways to track my cycle and get my hormones under control, long before we’re actively trying to conceive (because no, this is not a pregnancy announcement haha). If you spend any amount of time on social media, you’ve probably seen a lot of celebrities and bloggers using the Ava Bracelet, but you may have wondered…does it really work? Or, if you’re not trying to get pregnant, does it have a purpose for you?
Yes. Yes. And more yes.
I’ve been using my bracelet throughout the last couple of months, and the data is truly eye opening. While I’ve tracked my cycles on my own for years and always practiced “natural family planning”, I’ll be honest and say that, when you’re just using a calendar with no data, it’s really a lot of guessing. But, Ava tracks your temperature, heart rate, sleep, resting pulse, and breathing rate to accurately help you understand and predict your cycle. It’s really cool to watch the data load into the app each morning, and it gives you a little report on where you are and what you need to know.
If you think that tracking your cycle requires a great deal of medical knowledge, I promise that this will solve all of your worries and help you feel good about taking control of your health as a woman!
I’ve been loving it, and it’s so easy! If you’re interested in getting one or have been waiting for a while to purchase, use my code for $20 off your Ava Bracelet - I promise you won’t regret it! Code: GRIFFIN20
