When one thinks of digital birth control, Daysy is a great answer and an even better alternative to traditional contraception like the pill. Due to growing concerns about the pill's safety, research has shown that "out of 12 000 American women, 63% have stopped using it" in recent years.

This staggering research has inspired digital birth control products like Daysy and suggests that in a few years, most women will be using devices like it to monitor their ovulation and fertility cycles or as a method of contraception. The product tells users when it is safe to consummate their relationship without protection and when they should be more careful if trying to keep from getting pregnant.

Daysy's patented data system is called the "LadyComp algorithm" and monitors women's body temperatures in order to determine whether or not they are ovulating. Like traditional ovulation charts, this device gives users access to their cycle forecasts and is said to predict pregnancy at a 99.3% accuracy level. This revolutionary product and its data collection system gives users a new way to look at birth control and will change how women go about family planning in the future.
