We invite you to experiment and to actively explore saliva collection to find a comfortable method, time and place to take the daily test. Once you get the hang of it, it will feel like second nature!
However, in order to record accurate progesterone levels, it is important to follow these rules:
- Take the test inside your personal 4-hour testing window - measurements that started outside that window won't be accepted by the inne App. That said, it doesn't matter if a measurement started in time but was completed outside your testing window.
- Make sure that no foreign substances have been in your mouth 30 minutes prior to testing (e.g. no eating, drinking, kissing, tooth brushing, mouthwash, chewing gum).
- Alternatively, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and wait 10 minutes before taking the test.
- While your testing window is open, you'll find a 30-sec timer for saliva collection in the App. You can consider this rather a rule of thumb than a strict limit, but please keep collection periods as consistent as possible.
