Tracking Cervical Mucus As a Sign of Natural Fertility

Let’s talk about cervical secretions. Admittedly, not an everyday topic of conversation, but one that plays such an important role in natural fertility. If you’re just starting to think about trying to get pregnant, the concept of tracking your cervical mucus might be totally foreign – and may even make you cringe. However, these secretions offer valuable natural insight into when you are ovulating, which can be incredibly useful when trying to conceive. 

Hopefully by now you have already started monitoring your temperature every day and if so, this is an excellent step in the right direction to maximizing your chances of conception. However, there is more you can do…

What supplements should I take in early pregnancy?

“As a woman, you should know and have information about yourself. But nobody teaches you this and there’s no way to truly know what is normal for you until you start tracking your own cycle - that’s information you can take to your healthcare provider to figure out why there’s no change.”Stephanie used OvuSense

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.

Not Ovulating? Changing Your Diet May Be The Answer.

By: Amara Lindenmayer

Ovulatory infertility is the leading cause of infertility, causing at least 30% of cases. Having an anovulatory cycle (a menstrual cycle where your body doesn’t release an egg) is actually very common, about one-third of regular cycles are anovulatory! While this isn’t always a problem, it does make it harder if you are trying to conceive.

If you’re using OvuSense to track your cycles and notice that your charts are often looking anovulatory, or if you’ve got irregular cycles, polycystic ovarian syndrome or luteal phase defect, then changing your diet to optimise ovulation may be the answer.

Guest Blog: What information are you getting about your fertility?

By: Kat Stevens

We know that information is power but it can also be truly overwhelming, and this is so evident when we start to investigate a health issue— and specifically fertility. We head over to Google, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook and there is a wealth of information. Too much information? The wrong information? Conflicting or confusing information? This can in itself cause a stress response. You are in effect facing a tiger (worry, fear). You just want to know why you are not getting pregnant and what you can do about it.

With a background in nursing and a science degree, I am a strong believer in facts and have a questioning mind. As a Natural Fertility Therapist addressing the physical, neuro-physical, and emotional, I am a strong believer in all things being possible.
