PCOS Awareness Month is a federally designated event in the US created to increase awareness of, and education about PCOS among women, girls, healthcare professionals, and the general public.

Romper

Trying to conceive can be stressful, from tracking your ovulation to taking the appropriate tests, or finding the right tools that will work for you. Romper reporter Kristina Johnson experienced this first hand when she was trying to get pregnant with her daughter. While tracking your temperature is a common method for figuring out ovulation, many approaches can be “a pain to do on your own,” in her words.

FemTech: 5 Things Clinicians Should Know

In today’s digital age, many people’s first instinct is to immediately hop on Dr. Google when faced with a diagnosis or health situation they don’t fully understand. While this provides seemingly endless information, it can be hard for clinicians and other members of the care team to stay up to date on all the new tools and technology on the market, and what offers true clinical value. This is particularly true in women’s health, which has seen almost $1 billion in funding over the last three years and a surge in new tools and technology on the market.

Homeopathic Fertility Treatments: Acupuncture, reflexology & more

With the rise of more testing and data in healthcare, it seems like infertility is becoming more common. This may be due to the rising age of parenthood across the globe, environmental issues, or a slew of other issues. Conventional infertility treatments can be extremely expensive and complicated, so many who struggle with infertility seek alternative solutions that are more manageable.

As a result, we’re seeing growing interest in homeopathic or natural fertility treatments, such as acupuncture, reflexology, or herbal supplements. While there remains some scepticism about these therapies and their effectiveness in improving fertility, a growing body of research supports the impact they can have.

Fertility in Your 40s: What You Need to Know

The average age for first-time mothers in the US and UK has been steadily rising for decades. Due to the increasing cost of living, more education (& debt), and growing career opportunities for women – along with a slew of other reasons – it’s no surprise that many people are now waiting until they feel more financially stable to grow their families. In many cases, this means that women may not start trying to have children until their 40s. 

While there are some health risks to pregnancy as you age, we wanted to take a minute to review the facts about fertility in your 40s. Not sure what you need to know, why it may be harder to get pregnant, or signs to watch out for? Read on…

On the second month of trying with OvuSense, I got my BFP at 10DPO!!!! 

We’ve been trying for the last two years to conceive our fourth and final child.  My OH and I both come from very old families with no children whatsoever. We’re the youngest ones 40+. We’ve been swaying for boy and even did gender selection IVF abroad. Two embryos transferred but it still resulted in a BFN.

It has been a heartache for a long time.  Looking back, invasive IVF really upset me at the time too.  In the end, we just wanted to have a baby, either a baby girl or boy.  Unfortunately, we were still unable to conceive naturally.  In the past, I’ve had back to back pregnancies and didn’t make any real effort in conceiving.

I saw OvuSense on my Instagram newsfeed and got very excited to be able to pinpoint my Ovulation day.  Boom!  On the second month of trying with OvuSense, I got my BFP at 10DPO!!!!  We’re over the moon and we don’t really mind the gender of the baby anymore.  We’re feeling so grateful about being able to conceive as I’m 40 years old now.

User Testimonial: Emma, author of ItsMostlyOkay, discusses OvuSense & Secondary Infertility

Emma, author of the "ItsMostlyOkay" blog, discusses her struggles with secondary infertility and how OvuSense has helped her learn more about her cycle in a recent blog.

"During the last, nearly four years now, something I’ve never been 100% certain of is whether or not I’m actually ovulating. We started trying for a second baby back in 2015 and I duly bought and used ovulation sticks, given that they worked literally like a dream when we conceived Olivia. However second time round I found them to be increasingly unreliable. I seemed to get conflicting information from them – either nothing each month or several peak days. This meant I’d start using them really early to try and catch the right day, which ultimately meant spending loads of money."
