How to Improve Fertility

It can be difficult to face up to the wait for a positive result on the pregnancy test. If it’s taking you longer than you wanted to conceive successfully, it’s time to look at some of the ways you can improve your fertility.

OvuSense is here to help with some advice you can start putting into practice today.

Finding Your Fertile Days

In every menstrual cycle there will be days when you’re at your most fertile – the period of time just before you ovulate when sperm can survive long enough to encounter the egg when it’s released from your ovaries. This is also known as your ‘fertile window’.

If you’re not consciously trying to conceive during your fertile window, you aren’t giving yourself the best chance of success, and this translates into a lower perceived fertility. You need a reliable way to predict when you’re going to ovulate so you can ensure you’re trying to get pregnant at the time when you’re most likely to succeed.

OvuSense uses your basal body temperature as a measurement of ovulation. Our specialised sensor takes your temperature right through the night, to ensure it’s accessing this basal level correctly, and then using a cloud-based algorithm to process that data into two answers for you: one simply tells you whether you’re ovulating that day. The other is a constantly refined prediction of when your next fertile window is going to be.

Breakfast Tactics

If one of the challenges you’re facing as you try to get pregnant is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, then your breakfast can make a surprisingly big difference to your fertility.

PCOS is driven by your body producing too much insulin. In turn this causes it to overproduce androgen as well, and between these two hormones, they can cause the long list of symptoms that make up PCOS, including delayed and skipped and ovulations. Studies have shown that if you consume most of your calories at the beginning of the day, and have smaller meals at lunch and dinner times, it can get your insulin levels under control and can help women with PCOS ovulate 30% more than those not following this diet.

As each ovulation is a chance to get pregnant, this can really help you boost your fertility when you need it the most. It can also help you lose weight, which is beneficial to your general health and can help you control the symptoms of PCOS in the long term!
