Yes. If you sleep with your mouth open, just close it once and swallow before you measure. The measurement is finished when the temperature has reached its final value and you hear a soft beep beep from Daysy. Daysy may take a couple of seconds longer to measure for those users who sleep with their mouths open. Please be sure not to open your mouth while measuring.
Frequently Asked Questions
General questions about Daysy
No, in order to transfer your data from your Daysy 1.0 to your new Daysy 2.0 you will need to send your data file to customer support. Customer support will transfer your data file to your new Daysy 2.0 before it ships out. Please get in touch with customer support prior to purchasing a Daysy 2.0 if you’d like to have your data transferred.
To avoid damage, please do not place Daysy under your pillow. Keep Daysy in a safe place within easy reach.
Daysy is programmed with a complex algorithm which evaluates your cycle by tracking your morning temperature (taken under the tongue) and knowing when you have your period. Daysy will then show you right away if you are currently fertile or not.
Yes, your initial Daysy order includes everything you need.
That depends on whether the medication influences your body temperature or your cycle. In general, you should skip measurements while you are taking such medication. If you have doubts, contact your doctor or our customer service team.
In general, you should skip measurements during illness and while you are taking medication that can have an influence on your body temperature or cycle. If you have doubts, contact your doctor or our customer service team.
Daysy 1.0: Remove the battery and store Daysy in a dry location in its original packaging, if available. You can find more information in the instruction manual.
Daysy 2.0: Please store it in a cool, dry location. While stored, please remember to charge your Daysy once every 2-3 months to maintain the internal battery.
The first 2-4 cycles of use are considered Daysy's learning phase. Over the course of her learning phase, Daysy will come to understand your cycle and begin narrowing down your fertile window. Daysy remains quite cautious and conservative during this time, which is why Daysy is accurate starting the very first day.
Based on its recorded data, Daysy can compensate for the occasional missed reading. We still recommend you measure as regularly as possible so that your fertile phase can be narrowed down as precisely as possible. If you have to skip measurements due to illness, Daysy will get back on track once you start again.
You can rely on Daysy's results starting the very first day of use. In the beginning, you will see more yellow and red days because Daysy is still learning your unique cycle. You will see more green days as Daysy comes to understand your cycle and can narrow down your fertile window. The more regularly you measure, the better.
Smoking should not influence the result. Alcohol, if consumed excessively or when your body is not used to it, does influence basal body temperature. If you can feel that you were drinking yesterday, you should skip your reading in the morning. If you feel just fine and have no headache or other symptoms of alcohol consumption, you are fine to temp as usual.
3-5 days. For more information please check our general terms and conditions.
Daysy comes with a 2-year warranty. You can find all the relevant information in the general terms and conditions.
Ideally, you measure daily. The fewer measurements you miss, the better.
A fever is when your body temperature reaches at least 38°C (100.4°F) degrees - if this is the case, you will most likely feel ill and you will notice that your temperature curve is unusually high (see example curve). The DaysyDay app will alert you that your temperature is high and recommend you temp with a standard medical thermometer. Temperatures above 37.8°C (100.4°F) or below 35°C (95°F) degrees are automatically excluded from the algorithm and will not be used for your fertility calculations.
Red = fertile / possibly fertile (On red days you can plan for a pregnancy.)
Red flashing = predicted day of ovulation
Green = infertile days (You are not fertile on green days.)
Yellow = learning phase/cycle fluctuation (Yellow days should be considered as red days.)
Red, green, yellow (blinking) = possible pregnancy

First things first: If you feel that there is something not right, you feel sick, or you have pain, never hesitate to consult your doctor! Most people tolerate vaccinations without any problems. Sometimes, however, vaccination reactions occur: These are almost always harmless after-effects of vaccinations, which in the vast majority of cases pass very quickly. Some vaccinated people react with a slight fever (below 39°C / 102°F), aching limbs or faintness. The fever can occur only a few hours after vaccination and last up to 3 days. Such vaccination reactions are usually completely harmless and no cause for concern. As a rule of thumb: If you wake up in the morning after the vaccination and feel different than usual, for example sick or overtired, then interrupt the measurements until you feel better again.
How do I use Daysy?
For optimal use of Daysy, we recommend that you should have slept or rested for at least 1 hour before taking your temperature. It is important that you take your temperature immediately after waking up, before you get up and become active. Measure below your tongue, with your mouth closed, and keep the device steady while it is measuring.

Please contact your customer service for guidance.
One or two skipped measurements are not a problem; Daysy will simply use your earlier data to calculate your fertility. Multiple missing values per cycle will lead to a higher number of red or yellow days.
Simply press the activation button and your fertility status will be displayed.
No. Daysy will only record the first measurement of the day.
You can immediately start with the measurements. If you were using hormonal birth control before, stop using it before you begin measuring. The first bleeding after coming off hormonal birth control is a withdrawal bleeding and must not be entered as your period. If you are menstruating when starting with Daysy and you cannot enter all days, do not enter the current menstruation, but the next one. The first day of menstruation is important because it marks the beginning of your cycle.
Below the tongue in the pocket next to your frenulum and with your mouth closed. It is best to measure on the same side each morning if comfortable.
Yes, you can. Daysy is also reliable during the transition to menopause. If your ovulation is delayed or doesn't occur, Daysy will display more red and yellow days. Using Daysy will allow you to directly observe the changes that are happening to your cycle.
Yes, Daysy can be used while breastfeeding. You should not start measuring until 6 weeks after birth. Since there is no way to predict the first ovulation after birth, Daysy will stay yellow until the first menstruation is entered postpartum. Once you enter your first period, Daysy will display fewer red and yellow days in the following 2-4 cycles as Daysy gets to know your unique cycle rhythm.
Daysy 1.0: If you traveled overnight, skip the first measurement after your arrival and continue to measure regularly the next day after resuming a normal sleep cycle. Do the same thing when you return home from traveling.
Daysy 2.0: When traveling with your Daysy, it is important to set the time on your Daysy to the local time before resuming your temperature readings. Set your mobile phone to the local time zone (many phones will do this automatically) and synchronize your Daysy with DaysyView/DaysyDay to set the time on Daysy. Take your temperature and resume use as normal the next morning.
Yes, you can always rely on Daysy. For optimal use of Daysy, we recommend that you should have slept or rested for at least 1 hour before taking your temperature. It is important that you take your temperature immediately after waking up, before you get up and become active. If you have to skip a measurement after a sleepless night, Daysy will still reliably display your fertility status. Depending on where you are in your cycle, Daysy will react accordingly.
It will take approximately 60 seconds to measure.
Daysy automatically switches off after 60 seconds.
No. Daysy only records the first daily measurement. If you have concerns about a reading, please contact our customer service team.
No. For optimal use of Daysy, we recommend that you should have slept or rested for at least 1 hour before taking your temperature. It is important that you take your temperature immediately after waking up, before you get up and become active.
When Daysy displays a red light, it means that you are fertile. You can check your status anytime by activating Daysy.
Yes. Daysy has been designed for women like you. Simply take your temperature when you wake up.
Daysy 1.0: Daysy only registers one measurement after 18 hours have passed since your last reading.
Daysy 2.0: Daysy only registers one measurement per day. If the next day has not yet started, a tone (beep-beep) will sound.
Yes, but for optimal use of Daysy, we recommend that you should have slept or rested for at least 1 hour before taking your temperature. It is important that you take your temperature immediately after waking up, before you get up and become active..If you don't get that during certain nights, there is no reason for concern. Daysy can handle skipped measurements from time to time.
Yes, please take your temperature throughout your entire menstrual cycle. However, on some days you should refrain from taking a measurement: for example, after excessive alcohol consumption, when you are ill (fever) or when you are feeling very bad.
Turn on Daysy. Press the activation button until the violet light lights up without flashing and you hear a "beep". Confirm you are menstruating for each day of active bleeding and flow for a minimum of three consecutive days. You can change menstruation data for the same day by turning Daysy on and pressing and holding the activation button until the purple/blue light is no longer solidly lit.

Questions about "DaysyDay"
The intended use statement for your app can be found in the Main Menu of the app under Info - DaysyDay Information.
The serial number of your app (sometimes referred to as the version number) can be found in Settings > Info > DaysyDay Information. This number may be asked for by customer support when assisting with app related concerns.
Android phones require the app to have access to the phone's location data in order to enable Bluetooth® communication. Please rest assured that this is strictly an Android requirement. The DaysyDay app and Valley Electronics are not collecting, storing, or accessing any location information. This is strictly to allow the app to communicate with your Daysy via Bluetooth®.
No.DaysyDay will only import data from Daysy or the additional tracking information you have manually entered.
These horizontal lines run through your average low and high temperatures of each cycle, calculated once the cycle has closed. Because basal body temperature values naturally fluctuate each day, these lines can help you visualize the temperature step that occurs after ovulation. To learn more about how Daysy identifies and uses this temperature step to calculate your daily fertility, please read the article The Fertility Tracker Method.
When you synchronize Daysy with DaysyDay, all data on Daysy is transmitted. You can also manually add period flow, cervical mucus, intercourse, and other personal tracking information.
Open the app and click on the "Connect your Daysy" button. Select the appropriate button for the model Daysy you have, Bluetooth® or Cable, and then follow the on-screen instructions to connect your Daysy. For Daysy 1.0 (Cable), connect the cable to Daysy and then to your phone and then turn Daysy on. Occasionally, disconnecting and reconnecting the cable may be necessary if the phone does not recognize that Daysy is connected. For Daysy 2.0, press the button on Daysy once to turn it on and then double press the button to activate Bluetooth mode. Make sure Bluetooth® is activated on your phone and the app has permission to access the Bluetooth®. You will see a synchronization animation and then you will be prompted to enter your email address and the pin code you receive via email. Once completed, you will see your data displayed on the calendar and temperature curve.
Tutorial for DaysyDay
"DaysyDay" is an app available for free download in your app store. When used and synchronized with Daysy, the app displays your past, current, and future fertility statuses and provides additional insights to help you learn more about your cycle.
DaysyDay Partner requires internet access so that the app can display the most current data retrieved from the server after the Daysy user's most recent synchronization. This is also required in case permission levels have changed and access to certain data has been granted or removed.
Questions about my cycle
Daysy expects a certain amount of normal irregularity. For optimal use of Daysy, cycle lengths of 19-40 days are the ideal requirement. The statistics in the app display the ovulation range. If your ovulation fluctuates by more than 4 days or if your cycle length lies outside the 19 - 40 day range, please contact our team of experts.
It is normal for cycles to fluctuate. If you're unsure, feel free to contact our customer service.
Certain "strict" diets can lead to cycle irregularities, often times causing your period to come later. If you're unsure, reach out to our support team.
Yes. Irregular cycles are generally not a problem for Daysy. Even with irregular cycles, Daysy distinguishes between infertile and possibly fertile days with a very high accuracy. However, in case of extreme fluctuations, using the device is not very beneficial, because you would get proportionally more “yellow days” displayed. Fluctuations of several days are usually not a problem. If you have questions about your unique cycle, please reach out to our team of experts.
No, over-the-counter pain medication will not influence the measurements. The common additional antifebrile effect does not influence the basal temperature. However, please do not temp if you're using these medications to control a fever. If you're unsure, please contact our customer service.
Only very few (hormone-free) medications have a direct influence on your measurements, but often the reason why you are taking medication can influence your temperature (e.g. fever or stress). Hormonal medication will influence your temperature and should under no circumstances be taken in combination with Daysy. If you're unsure, consult with your doctor or contact our customer service.
The typical influences on your temperature and cycle include:
● excessive amounts of alcohol ● sleep deprivation ● disease or illness ● chronic physical or emotional stress ● significant exercise ● strict dietary restrictions / starvation ● malnutrition ● travel
Once you know the cause, many irregularities in your cycle are easy to reverse. Feel free to reach out to our customer service to discuss your temperature curve.
If your efforts to become pregnant have not been successful within six to twelve months, consult your physician.

Use a damp cloth to carefully clean the sensor on your Daysy. You can also use a little alcohol or soap if you wish. Since your Daysy is not waterproof, make sure that only the neck on the sensor and not the whole appliance comes into contact with water.
We recommend the following steps for cleaning your Daysy:
- Clean the sensor neck and tip with lukewarm water and/or mild soap before and after each use.
- Dry with a clean cloth.
- Replace the protective cap after drying.
These steps will reduce the number of germs or possible viruses on the surface of the device. This cleaning is sufficient for daily personal use with Daysy.
If the device needs to be disinfected as well, the following steps can be practiced:
- Wash your hands thoroughly or wear disposable gloves.
- Clean the sensor neck and tips (as per steps 1 & 2 listed above).
- Moisten the sensor neck and tip with a disinfectant (limited virucidal), alcohol (60-80%) or isopropanol 70%.
- When necessary, a cotton swab can be moistened with disinfectant and inserted into the protective cap to clean the inside.
- Allow to air-dry (the sensor neck should not touch any other objects or surfaces).
- Place the protective cap back on your Daysy.
We are taking precautions as necessary, with staff wearing gloves, use of Personal Protective Equipment and increased cleaning methods. All products are disinfected prior to shipping.
Coronaviruses are encased viruses, meaning they are encased in a lipid envelope. All disinfectants with a virucidal (antiviral) or limited virucidal spectrum of efficacy are effective against coronaviruses. A list of all tested and approved disinfectants to fight Covid-19 is available from United States Environmental Protection Agency found here: www.epa.gov
The agents listed can inactivate the corona virus, which means it loses its ability to be infectious. This can be done in different ways:
· Denaturation -> destruction of the virus surface · Removal of lipids from the virus envelope -> e.g. alcohol · Impairment to the nucleic acid of the viral genome
Alcohol is capable of destroying the virus shell and can often be found already in your home. Alcohol that is 60% alcohol is effective in inactivating the virus. However, 100% alcohol is not effective because only alcohol with a proportion of water allows the lipids to be dissolved from the virus envelope. An alcohol volume between 60% and 80% is therefore recommended. Isopropanol (70% )is also a suitable agent for the inactivation of COVID-19. You can learn more about cleaning and disinfection for households from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention here: www.cdc.gov
If for some reason, the increase in temperature is very low, Daysy will switch to displaying red days for a longer period, before switching to yellow days and, eventually, back to green days. A low rise in temperature can be an indication of a hormonal condition. During anovulatory cycles, no rise in temperature is registered because ovulation did not occur. Corpus luteum insufficiency (CLI) is another possible reason for a low or indeterminable rise in temperature because the body doesn't produce sufficient progesterone to make the basal body temperature (BBT) rise. Menopausal women can also register lower increases in temperature, because their estradiol and progesterone values are declining.
Not really. On average, a woman's temperature increases by 0.3 degrees Celsius. If yours rises by more than 0.5 degrees Celsius on average, please contact our customer service.
Daysy 1.0: The battery should not be removed for any reason. If Daysy's battery loses contact, it will stay yellow until the next menstruation is entered. The data you have already saved within Daysy is still there.
Daysy 2.0: Daysy does not have an accessible battery compartment. Please do not attempt to open your device or remove the battery as this will automatically void the warranty.
Please contact customer service.
Please contact your local customer service.
Daysy 1.0: Please use a coin and turn the cap counter-clockwise to open the battery compartment.
Daysy 1.0: Make sure that you are following the correct order of steps to facilitate synchronization. Please contact your local customer service team if you have further trouble.
