Fertility & Family – How to Make It Through The Holiday Season

Whatever your religion or background, the next few weeks are filled with non-stop social and family engagements celebrating the holidays or ringing in the new year. Often, this means taking a trip back home to be with your extended family.

While this can be a joyous reunion, this time can also bring up memories of loved ones who can’t be there or elevate family tensions in close quarters. When going through infertility, there may be additional apprehension of seeing relatives’ children, dealing with other’s pregnancy announcements, or answering questions about when you’re planning to start or grow your own family.

Using Data for PCOS Diagnosis - OvuSense User Morgan’s TTC Journey

When women struggle to get or stay pregnant, they often find themselves asking ‘why?’ — Unfortunately, the answer the answer is not usually black and white. Morgan was no exception, and after nearly four years of trying to conceive, started using OvuSense to learn more about her cycle. 

In 2015, Morgan was recently married and ready to start trying for a family. However the challenges she would face along the way were already starting to appear. A year before in 2014, she had been diagnosed with uterine fibroids and recently underwent surgery to have them removed. Not long after getting married, doctors discovered they had returned, forcing her to have a second surgery. Only weeks later, while still in recovery, she was also diagnosed with a thyroid disorder.

OvuSense May Help Diagnose Previously Undetected Causes of Infertility – Research at ASRM 2019

One in eight couples will have trouble getting pregnant or carrying a baby to term, however many are left frustrated without a formal diagnosis to explain their challenges. While some causes are truly unknown, others go undiagnosed as there is not enough information available. Using Core Body Temperature (CBT) monitoring, women and their doctors may now be able to identify previously undetectable causes of infertility

Recognizing this gap in care, researchers studied the data from users of OvuSense, which is the only clinically proven fertility monitor with Class 2 regulatory approval, to understand the link between cycle characteristics of CBT curves and infertility. In the paper, presented at the 2019 American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) meeting, the OvuSense team has assessed a range of atypical cycle patterns and prevalence within the OvuSense user base.

On World Fertility Day – Do You Know These Fertility Facts?
