UPDATE: The Wink is no longer in production—fortunately, Kindara works perfectly without it! You can manually record your BBT with any BBT thermometer of your choice. Kindara makes charting quick and easy so you can enjoy the journey.
As many of you know, I’ve been using the Fertility Awareness Method as a form of birth control for a loooonnng time. You also probably know that I am a huge fan of the Kindara app, an app that is based on the Fertility Awareness Method and helps you track your cycle along with primary fertility signs – basal body temperature and cervical fluid changes.
The Kindara app is the bee’s knees so I’m thrilled to announce that they now have on offer the Wink, an oral fertility thermometer built to sync with their app. Whoo hoo!
How To Use The Kindara Wink
The Wink is super easy to use. You wake up, and before doing anything else (like going to the bathroom, checking your phone etc), take your temperature (it literally takes 10 seconds), and then it syncs to the Kindara app on your phone.
Wink is so cool, not only because it takes your basal temperature but it automatically syncs with the Kindara app on your phone so you don’t have to remember to enter your temp. Hello to super accuracy, and goodbye to lost readings and temperature input mistakes. #storyofmylife
I can’t begin to describe how much this method of birth control has impacted my life and the lives of the women I share it with. I preach about understanding your body’s hormonal landscape through body awareness all the time, and the Fertility Awareness Method along with Kindara + Wink are key tools for women who want to work with their bodies’ natural ebb and flow.

Hello! Do you have any recommended Bluetooth or general BBT thermometers?
I’m looking into getting a basal thermometer and after doing a lot of research and also read your posts, I still can´t decide if I should get the Daysy or the Wink?? There is clearly a big difference in price and the other difference I see is that Daysy has the indicator lights while the Wink doesn’t right??
Any thoughts/advice on which one to get??
Hi there, the Wink and Daysy are two entirely different products. The Wink is just a basal thermometer, whereas the Daysy is a fertility computer. This is why it gives you red, orange and green lights to indicate whether you are fertile or not each day of your cycle. The Wink takes your basal temperature and then inputs that temp into the Kindara app via bluetooth. Then it’s up to you to chart your cervical fluid and determine whether you are fertile or not based on your temps and your cervical fluid patterns. I outline a lot of this in my Birth Control Protocol – https://nicolejardim.com/signature-products/
The Daysy also takes your basal temp and then does the work for you. It needs a few months to learn your cycle and then you’ll start seeing the red and green days. You can read my review here: https://nicolejardim.com/daysy-fertility-monitor/
Hope this helps!!
