babyMed, the website with the only accurate fertility predictor online, was conceived by a real doctor, well-known pregnancy and fertility expert and ObGyn Amos Grunebaum, MD.
Dr. Amos, as he is known by his patients, is a professor at a New York Ivy League Medical School and the director of obstetrics at the largest hospital in New York. He still maintains an active ObGyn practice.
Professor Grunebaum realized early on that his patients, though very well educated, lacked one important piece of information: How to get pregnant.
While most High School and College students learn a lot about how to NOT get pregnant, they rarely if ever learn enough about HOW to improve their chances of getting pregnant. So in 1996 Professor Grunebaum came up with the idea of creating an online site to educate women and men about pregnancy and trying to get pregnant. His first website (called babydata.com) was eventually acquired by WebMD. Soon thereafter his German website 9Monate.de was acquired by a German health and media company.
Professor Grunebaum envisions using his extensive knowledge of fertility and pregnancy to continue to create extensive tools, information, data, and a supportive community enabling women and men to get pregnant faster and have a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Today, BabyMed is the Internet’s most popular and best independent pregnancy and fertility website created by a practicing obstetrician and gynecologist. Since its creation, BabyMed.com has earned the loyalty of many who have been trying to conceive and became pregnant around the world. Now with more than 3 million monthly visitors, BabyMed generates over 11 million pageviews a month and has been steadily growing in its global audience and is among the few major fertility and pregnancy sites with mobile optimization.
The best online and mobile pregnancy and fertility calculator
Scientifically proven. Researchers analyzed more than 50 popular websites and smartphone apps that offer to predict a woman's "fertility window," or the days during a woman's menstrual cycle when she can become pregnant.
They found that the fertility windows predicted by the apps and websites varied widely, and that many of these windows included days after ovulation, when the chances that sexual intercourse will result in pregnancy are close to zero.
According to Setton, research shows that a woman's "fertile window" -- or the best time to have sex -- includes the day she ovulates and the five days before that. For a woman with a menstrual cycle of 28 days, that would be days 10 through 15.
Yet only one website and three apps came up with that fertile window, Setton said. They included the Babymed.com site and the apps Clue; My Days - Period & Ovulation; and Period Tracker, the study found.
The rest of the calculators, Setton said, "were all over the place."
