There is no question the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges and hurdles, but has it also struck a flame of hope? Living with day-to-day uncertainty has provided the opportunity to determine what someone wants their future to look like, and allows for the time to plan and set life goals. While long-term futures will undoubtedly look different for everyone - one path many couples are considering is growing or starting a family.
While joyous and exciting, beginning or continuing to grow a family can be difficult, especially with the current disruptions from the pandemic. To better support families in their fertility journeys, OvuSense has partnered with ExSeed - an at-home sperm testing company - to bring a complete monitoring and testing solution for the couple trying to conceive. The partnership combines the importance of female ovulation tracking, as well as male total motile sperm count tracking - all from the convenience of your home.
Passionate about making the fertility journey easier for TTC couples, Robert Milnes, CEO of Fertility Focus shares: “In the face of unprecedented health and economic disruption caused by the covid-19 pandemic, recent research shows Millennials and Gen-Z are determined more than ever to build a different future. They’ve been forced to spend much of the past year online, and the feeling of uncertainty that a pandemic brings means they want to regain some control. It’s focussed their minds on key life goals such as starting or growing a family. In fact, this online generation is the future of families, so it makes perfect sense to offer OvuSense and ExSeed together as the complete testing solution for the couple.”
The Power of a Complete At-Home Monitoring Solution:
ExSeed is a home use medical device which allows male partners to track their total motile sperm count with >95% proven accuracy, and understand their sperm quality. This parameter is the best initial predictor of male fertility, and tracking it over time provides reassurance that dietary and lifestyle improvements are increasing the chances of conception from the male partner's side.
Also for use in the home, OvuCore and OvuSense Pro measure female continuous core body temperature (cCBT). The technology predicts ovulation up to 24 hours in advance, and confirms the exact date of ovulation with 99% clinically-proven accuracy. Based on recently published clinical studies of over 8,000 OvuSense users, the OvuSense® Pro clinical portal allows doctors to screen for potential causes of female sub-fertility, risk of miscarriage and potential pregnancy complications, and then track the effect of changes in diet, lifestyle and treatments.
The partnership between OvuSense and ExSeed provides couples with the best chance of timing conception and the reassurance of knowing a successful pregnancy is achievable.
Partnership Benefits for the TTC Journey:
Both OvuSense and ExSeed are designed for home use, allowing couples to begin their fertility journey without stepping foot into a doctor’s office. The remote capability of these devices is especially convenient during an ongoing pandemic and at a time when many fertility clinics and improvements can be hard to come by.
Morten G. Ulsted, CEO and Co-Founder of ExSeed shares: “Almost every couple that is now trying to conceive has grown up with mobile devices, and they use every online means possible to gain a detailed understanding of their health. At the same time, the generational shift means the male partner is now much more likely to want to participate actively in solving a couples trying to conceive issues. That’s what makes the ExSeed and OvuSense combination best placed to be THE solution for this tech-savvy generation.”
Both ExSeed and OvuSense provide couples with DAILY fertility insights via a phone app and offer best-in-class proven medical monitoring. The convenience of at-home monitoring also allows for couples to share and work with specialists remotely.
