Frequently Asked Questions

The Basics    

What is kegg?
kegg is the world's first fertility tracking kegel. It just takes two minutes in the afternoon for kegg to sense your cervical mucus. Kegg also doubles as a kegel device, so you can exercise your pelvic floor at the same time. Your data then automatically syncs to your phone via our app.

How does it work?
kegg uses advanced sensing technology called impedance spectroscopy for vaginal mucus measurement, which in simple words means streaming small pulses throughout the vaginal environment. Based on their responses, kegg knows how the fluid-structure changes. By sensing the changes of your vaginal fluids with impedance spectroscopy, kegg can determine when fertile cervical fluid is present.

Can kegg be used to prevent pregnancy?
No, kegg has not been certified as a contraceptive tool. Kegg is classified as a fertility tracker, which means that you can use kegg as a complementary tool to your preferred fertility awareness method.

How it Works    

Can kegg distinguish cervical mucus from seminal fluid?
Yes, kegg can sense "noise," which usually means it detects semen, infection, and/or arousal fluid. If you're using kegg with your preferred Fertility Awareness Method, make sure that you select the "track your fertility" mode when setting up your kegg. From there, you can add additional data like when you last had intercourse. If kegg doesn't have sufficient and clear data to confirm your fertile window, it will determine that you're "most likely fertile."

Why does kegg track cervical mucus and not Basal Body Temperature?
cervical mucus electrochemical structure confirms ovulation also in irregular cycles. Elevated progesterone levels may result in BBT rise but electrochemical structure of cervical mucus maps this hormonal change and it translates into impedance levels. Kegg does not track visual or subjective CM changes but their conductivity levels.

How does kegg work as a kegel device?
When a kegg is inserted into a woman's vagina, it will vibrate to tell her how and when to squeeze the pelvic floor while it also senses the cervial fluids.

How does kegg pinpoint ovulation?
Kegg can predict the ovulation with high certainty, but various physiological and behavioral factors can cause a woman's ovulation to be "turned off" like travelling, stress, and certain medications. It's also important to note that nothing can predict ovulation with 100% certainty — not even an ultrasound. Even so, what makes kegg special is that it tracks the core changes, like when a woman's body gears up to ovulate (i.e. creates a viable environment for sperm to survive and enter the cervix) and when it succeeds to ovulate.

Kegg & Your Fertility    

I have PCOS, will kegg work for me?
Yes, kegg can help you. When you have PCOS, your body is often trying to ovulate but rarely succeeds. kegg can tell you when your body is gearing up to ovulate and when you're potentially fertile. It can also confirm your ovulation if it happens. Most women conceive from having intercourse not during ovulation, but when their cervical mucus is most fertile, which happens prior to ovulaton. Therefore, if you're trying to conceive with PCOS, you should be focusing on the days where your body starts to produce fertile cervical mucus.

Does kegg work for women with irregular cycles?
We are currently undergoing clinical trials to examine this further, but so far, there is strong evidence that kegg should work with any type of cycles because kegg is based on sensing, not probability.

Should I use kegg during my period?
There's no need because women typically do not ovulate during menstruation. Actually, we would not recommend you to use kegg during a period, infection, or when the vagina is irritated.

Does kegg work for women who have fertile cervical mucus at different stages of their cycles?
Yes, kegg detects the electrochemical structure of the cervical mucus, which confirms ovulation even for those who experience fertile cervical mucus at various stages their cycles. When this occurs, it could mean that either your body is trying to ovulate multiple times per cycle but rarely succeeds, or you are experiencing different fertile cervical mucus at various stages of your cycle. The way women perceive and feel fertile cervical mucus with their fingers might not mean the same way in electrolyte sensing of fertile cervical mucus.

Taking Care of Your kegg    

What is the proper way to clean the kegg?
The kegg likes to be cleaned the same way women should clean their vaginas: with plain water and no soap!
