1) Set the alarm for what time you want to wake in the morning.
2) Every morning, before getting up or becoming active in any way, take your temperature, by placing the sensor under your tongue for 30-60 seconds. It will beep once your temperature has been recorded.
3) Press the + (Yes) or – (No) buttons when pearly® asks if you are “M” menstruating.
