    maybe babyNo More Peeing on a Stick: New Ovulation Kit Uses Saliva to Determine when a Woman is Fertile

    A revolutionary new ovulation kit that uses saliva - rather than a urine sample - has been launched in the UK.

    Traditional fertility predictor kits use urine to test for an increase in lutenising hormone (LH) which takes place one or two days before ovulation.

    But the new Maybe Baby tester, shaped like a lipstick, claims to measure oestrogen and salt levels found in traces of women's saliva which surges when they are most fertile.

    The manufacturer claims the £40 saliva test is 98 per cent accurate and could end the traditional and, less than dignified 'pee-on-a-stick' method.

    A study has found that the number of eggs a woman has left in her ovaries is lower if her mother had an early menopause.

    With more women delaying motherhood to their late-30s and beyond, the chances of conceiving fall as the ovaries run down their stock of eggs.

    In the UK, the average age of the menopause is 51, but hereditary factors mean that the process can happen earlier in some women than in others.
