A new kind of family plan: fertility phone

NTT DoCoMo fertility phone

The fertility phone

A cell phone from Japan's NTT DoCoMo tells women trying to get pregnant when to have sex. We're not kidding.

A woman programs her menstruation data into the phone. The phone then alerts her a few days in advance as to when she is ovulating, as well as on her most fertile day. Designed by a woman named Momoko Ikuta, the pastel paisley phone also features a cooking recipe database and a button for faking an incoming call.

No word on why there is no male version for the responsible spouse looking to keep track. But here's one possibility. A study released last week linked cell phone radiation with male infertility.
