A Cambridge University-trained chemist is offering British women an inexpensive alternative to in-vitro fertilization treatment, and one that does not raise ethical problems.

Shamus Husheer, a native of New Zealand, founded Cambridge Temperature Concepts, which offers a highly accurate method of measuring a woman's temperature and thus pinpointing the time of ovulation. The firm offers the service to women who are having trouble conceiving, at a cost of £495 ($795), and promises a refund to women who do not become pregnant.

In-vitro fertilization treatments cost about £4,500. Husheer claims that his service offers equal prospects for achieving pregnancy.
