Trying to conceive can come with many difficulties, especially if you are struggling with endometriosis, a menstruation disease in which tissue similar to the lining on the inside of your uterus grows outside of your uterus. Although it is estimated to impact 200 million women worldwide, the condition is still incredibly difficult to diagnose and treat.
OvuSense advocate Jessamy Baldwin recently spoke to the New York Post about her history with the disease, how it impacted her fertility, and how she was eventually able to conceive (and recently deliver!) her beautiful rainbow baby girl.
Jessamy’s Battle with Endometriosis
For Jessamy, her diagnosis took 18 long years. She spent 4.5 years trying to conceive, saw countless doctors, and experienced 6 miscarriages, 8 rounds of ovulation induction, and a round of IVF (resulting in miscarriage) before finally getting her diagnosis. Then, after grueling endometriosis surgery and an immune-suppressing protocol, Jessamy was overjoyed to become pregnant. She recently welcomed her daughter, Evie, earlier this year.
How OvuSense Helped Jessamy Along the Way
When Jessamy and her husband were trying to conceive naturally, she used both OvuCore and then OvuFirst to confirm if and when she was ovulating. Finding both sensors invaluable, Jessamy recommended the devices to many friends. In fact, a friend of hers who had been dealing with secondary infertility got pregnant during her first month of using OvuCore.
“It really is the best ovulation monitor on the market in my view. During my first embryo transfer back in 2021, I used my OvuCore to monitor my core body temperature during the two-week wait as well, to ensure my body was absorbing the progesterone,” shared Jessamy.
