Maybe you’ve just landed your dream job, are preparing for a big move, or simply need a mental health break - whatever your reason for pausing or delaying TTC, we support you. Sometimes, babymaking can feel like a full-time job, and other times, life simply gets in the way. Or maybe you aren’t ready to take that leap just yet, and that’s okay! Delaying baby dancing until you’re ready or putting it on hold may be just what you need, depending on your current situation and mindset.  

If you do decide to wait or press pause on TTC, there’s no reason not to track your data. In fact, it is beneficial for you to do so! Tracking your cycle with an at-home fertility monitor such as OvuFirst can help you to determine when you ovulate, identify any patterns within your cycle, and even lead to hotter sex. OvuFirst is perfect for women who are interested in learning more about their cycle by monitoring their ovulation and cycles in a convenient, non-invasive way.

Tracking Can Determine When You Ovulate 

Even if you aren’t ready to start trying, or if you’re taking a much-needed break from babymaking, it is still helpful to identify when you ovulate. By tracking your cycle and narrowing down your fertile window, you’ll take the guesswork out of TTC when that time comes. 

OvuFirst tracks your cycle by measuring your skin temperature while you sleep and provides women with an understanding of when to try and conceive, even if that’s not your goal at the moment. The most accurate skin-worn sensor on the market, OvuFirst confirms your fertile window with over 90% accuracy. This is helpful information to have for when you decide to resume or begin TTC - then, you’ll know exactly when to get down to business to increase your chances of getting pregnant. 

Tracking Helps Identify Any Cycle Patterns 

OvuFirst provides data to help you gain a good understanding of the fluctuations in progesterone that occur during your cycle. This can help you to determine if you may experience any issues during the process of starting or growing a family. In addition, tracking will help you to learn more about the length of your cycle. Many are surprised to learn that only 13% of women have a 28-day cycle. In fact, nearly 65% of study participants’ cycles lasted 25 to 30 days, meaning few women actually ovulate on day 14 of their cycles, contrary to popular belief. It is important to know if you have a shorter cycle, “average” cycle, or longer cycle, so that once you’re ready to start or grow your family, you’ll have a better understanding of when is the best time to try to conceive. 

Tracking Can Lead to Hotter Sex 

If you’re looking for further proof of why it’s a good idea to track your cycle, look no further! Monitoring your data can actually lead to hotter sex and a better climax. How, you ask? In cycle weeks two to three, your testosterone and oestrogen levels are increasing. Often, during these rises, women find it easier to achieve intense orgasm. A few great orgasms will certainly help clear your mind while you’re giving TTC a bit of a break. So don’t waste any time and get to tracking your cycle, because your sex life is about to kick into high gear!
