Clearblue Fertility Monitor
The Marquette Method of NFP uses Clearblue Fertility Monitors as a tool for monitoring your daily reproductive hormone levels (estogen and luteinizing hormone).
Clearblue Fertility Monitor Test Sticks
In addition to the monitor, couples using the Marquette Method of NFP need to purchase at least one box of Clearblue Fertility Monitor Test Sticks. They are single-use and disposable.
Marquette Method Mira Monitor NFP Protocol Supplies
The Marquette Institute for Natural Family Planning has conducted preliminary research into the reliability of the Mira monitor as an aid to NFP (Bouchard et al., 2021). An increasing number of couples have begin to integrate the Mira Monitor into their Marquette Method tracking routine, either in addition to or as a substitute for the Clearblue Monitor.
Talk to your instructor (or get a free consult with one of our instructors) to discuss the pros and cons of using the Mira vs. the Clearblue monitor in your particular circumstances. You can also read our blog post explaining Marquette’s Mira monitor protocols and Vitae Fertility’s personalized approach to teaching these protocols to our client couples.
