However, this often isn’t as simple as it sounds, as many women don’t ovulate in the middle of their cycle – or may not have regular cycles ...

Anca's story

I'm Anca and here's my story....

For 10 years, my husband and I have been trying to conceive on-and-off.  

In January 2015, I started taking inositol and my cycles came back with a bit of diet and swimming.  I would have a period about every 35-45 days.

I used OvuSense and it confirmed I ovulate late in cycle - but I do ovulate!  I know OvuSense got it right too; I had blood test to back it up showing that I did ovulate when OvuSense said I had.

Summer of 2015,  I had two rounds of Clomid and Trigger Shot but did not got pregnant.  

I then had a chat with the OvuSense fertility nurse, Kate Davies, in Sept 2015.   Kate pushed me to try acupuncture to help regulate my cycles more.  I started weekly with acupuncture sessions and with two cycles, I was pregnant in Nov 2015.  I sadly miscarried in January 2016.

Unfortunately, I put more weight on after the miscarriage.  On the second cycle post the my miscarriage, I was pregnant again!   For me, I really believed the acupuncture helped.

Keep trying ladies - keep going and try new things.

Best wishes,

Anca xx

Courtney's story - pregnant during the OvuSense User Study

I'm Courtney,

I have been with my husband 15 years ttc for 5 of those years and I'm now pregnant!

I signed up for the OvuSense User Study recently to test their new App, not knowing what OvuSense was all about. But as women with PCOS, we get to a point where we are willing to try almost anything to get that baby we have been trying so hard for!

Last month, I used 100mg of clomid along with my monitoring my cycles with my OvuSense sensor. I had my blood drawn to confirm ovulation, so the Doctor said I did not ovulate for the month of May.   However, OvuSense said I did!  

My husband and I had sex all around the time of OvuSense said I was  in my ovulation window & I woke up to this...a positive pregnancy test!

Courtney

The Dr was already sending me to seek IUI as he said I was not ovulating! I must admit I was just about to throw in the towel as money just is not available to all for fertility treatment costs.

Just as I was going to sign up to keep using my OvuSense Sensor as the free User Study was coming to a close, I can now start buying baby clothes instead!

I want to thank OvuSense for my miracle baby!  Ladies when you're feeling your lowest don't give up - I just know it's gonna happen when the time is just right!

Wish us all the luck in the world.

Line's story

My name is Line and I'm pregnant!  

Thank you Ovusense...after 5 years of trying... and 2 cycles with OvuSense, I now have this to show:

Line

Line 2

When trying to conceive,  I took prenatal vitamins and my husband was on a variety of supplements like Zinc and B-vitamin.  In addition, my hubby managed got his sperm-count up, from 0.5 million to 4 million.

And by using Ovusense, we got pregnant as we knew exactly when I was ovulating.

Don't lose hope...!  Please keep trying.

Erika's story

I'm Erika and I have been an OvuSense user since June 2015 and found out I was ovulating later in my cycle than my doctor thought!

I finally got pregnant in August 2015 after 6 years of trying!  Sadly, I miscarried after only 4wks. It proved to be the saddest day of my life and I thought I could just bounce back and try again right away but I just couldn't sadly.

Well it ended up being a lot harder emotionally and other things in my life piled on top, so here I am 5 months later. But, it's a new year and I finally had my period for the first time since the miscarriage (with the help of meds of course).

It's a new year (2016) and time to start again!!! I pray that we will be blessed this year with a healthy pregnancy and baby!

Please wish us luck and love!

Karen's story

My name is Karen.  I don't know about everyone else but I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to OvuSense.

They a) made this machine that is SUPER accurate b) made it affordable (relative to the cost of fertility drugs and treatments) and c) offer TONS of individualized support EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

A huge part of my journey with PCOS and trying to conceive has always been "knowledge is power." I want to better understand my body and my condition and OvuSense allows me to do that AND help my doctors!

I'm just so SO thankful and I look forward to do the day when I can attribute thanks because of a pregnancy (one day!).

Thanks again for all your help and support,

Karen x

Rachel's story

Hi -

I'm Rachel.  I have used OvuSense for one cycle now and know that my ovulation is not regular either. OvuSense confirmed ovulation for me within a week and showed that I have a short luteal phase which I can now work on.

I may not have known this crucial information if I hadnt used OvuSense and could have gone on trying and not got pregnant, or miscarried early, but now I can do something about it and give myself the best chances.

It is worth it for me just knowing what your body is doing! Plus the support on the OvuSense Facebook Users Group is amazing.

Wish me luck,

Rachel

Karen's story

My name is Karen and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years.  We only bought OvuSense a month ago and we are now pregnant!  Must be the fastest OvuSense conception in history!   I was not pregnant a month ago and started using it part way through a cycle - I noticed a rise and went for it.  

Here's my positive result:

Karen

As someone with PCOS who was told less than a year ago we would never conceive without medical assistance, then to have a miscarriage and told it was a fluke I ovulated.    To have a tool like OvuSense confirm I was ovulating in a week, and for it to be accurate without a formal baseline reading in place was amazing!

Best of luck ladies.  Please don't give up.

Karen :)

Lori's story

Hi -

I'm Lori  and this is my 5th month using OvuSense, never had a temp this low before.  See my chart below:

Lori McKay 1

It was kind of strange and I wasn't sure if I should be worried, or not.

I was starting to get upset with my temps and charting, and after speaking to my partner we decided that I was getting too worked up and decided that we were going to stop using OvuSense for few months and just relax over it all.

But we've been really blessed - I'm now pregnant. 

Lori McKay

Please don't give up.  Best wishes to you all.

Lindsay's story

Well ladies, it's official!  I got a confirmed pregnancy yesterday!! Delighted is not the word!!  Just need to take things easy now!!! ?

Linday Bray 1

Lindsay Bray

Here's my full story.....
 
I was diagnosed with PCOS in my teens, I really didn’t know what it meant or what to expect later in life. To be honest, I put it to the back of my mind. I was on the contraceptive pill to regulate my cycles and all as far as I was aware seemed ok!
 
Roll on a few years and I meet my husband and wanted a family and that is when my education started! After trying for a baby for over 2 years, I was finally accepted for IVF. This was no easy task and I was meant to be on an extremely strict diet for 4 months to lose enough weight to have an acceptable BMI.
