Sarah Heywood, Founder of The Journey, Shares Her Journey with OvuSense

Like many women, Sarah spent her 20s trying NOT to get pregnant, assuming that when she was ready, she would be able to conceive. But after experiencing irregular cycles her whole life, she quickly realized that her journey to motherhood wasn’t going to be as straightforward as she had hoped. 

After being diagnosed with PCOS in her early 30s while having trouble ttc her first child, Sarah realized she needed a better way to learn about her cycle on her own terms and take back control of her fertility. However, she quickly realized that misinformation or “fertility traps” are everywhere, and needed a more reliable solution. 

After doing her research into apps that work with PCOS, Sarah found OvuSense, which offered her “a window to help listen and understand my body better.” Around this time, she also founded The Journey alongside consultant gynaecologist Mahantesh Karoshi as a way to bring evidence-based research, experts, and the products that really work and are backed by science all into one place. 

Below, Sarah shares her early understanding of infertility, and how her own experience has pushed her to help other women find the right information and resources as early as possible.
