OvuSense® Pro: Remote Reproductive Cycle Assessment
OvuSense® Pro: Remote Reproductive Cycle Assessment
Faster Help for your Sub-Fertile Patient
OvuSense® Pro has been designed for your patients that are concerned about their fertility but are not ready (for whatever reason) to begin more advanced treatment. This can be patients with known or suspected conditions like PCOS, to patients that have just started trying but are anxious about their progress.
OvuSense Pro is designed to provide you and your patient with objective feedback as to the status of their reproductive cycle, on a cycle by cycle basis.
So your patients save time and money by getting to the heart of sub-fertility issues sooner.
OvuSense Pro is purchased by the patient and includes a web portal where you can check their progress at anytime.
The patient also gets full use of the individual OvuSense system using either OvuCore™ or OvuFirst™
OvuSense Pro is used to gain objective information so you can screen for conditions which may be causing sub-fertility, or help monitor treatments and/ or recommended dietary changes.
With OvuSense Pro you will be able to:
- Objectively see important physiological indicators such as cycle length, and length of luteal and follicular phases.
- Understand the best time in the cycle to carry out in-office tests such as serum progesterone, ultrasound folliculometry, and further hormone testing.
- Create a treatment plan, and guide the patient more effectively as objective feedback is now available.
How it Works
On your PC or MAC, OvuSense Pro shows a graph of the cycle. The graph lets you see the length of the reproductive cycle, the follicular and luteal phases, and flags potential cycle issues based on a set of clinically published criteria. This helps both understand which diagnostic tests to conduct and the best timing of those tests. Blood for a serum progesterone, for instance, can be timed for draw 7 days after confirmed ovulation by OvuSense Pro as per ASRM recommendations.
Once a diagnosis is in place, cycle changes can be easily tracked to determine whether treatments and dietary change are having the desired effect.
The patient can also track key elements of their cycle on their mobile device. This helps them in a number of ways-it can help with the timing of sex, give them a better understanding of their cycle and provides a sense of control.
This example screen shows a cycle of 73 days with ovulation occurring on day 62. The luteal phase is 11 days long. This is the first of three cycles shown in the Case Study. The case study shows the progression from an atypical cycle treated by a physician with Letrozole to a cycle with much more 'normal' characteristics and balanced follicular and luteal phases.
The ability to see cycle changes easily is the main benefit of OvuSense Pro.
View the OvuSense Pro Case Study
This case study covers three consecutive cycles. You will see the initial cycle is 73 days long, the next 47. Then with Letrozole the cycle length is reduced to 32 days with ovulation is on day 20.
We objectively see the reproductive cycle, the clear change in cycle length, and the result of the intervention.
In this example the OvuSense user was 32 years old, trying to conceive 1-2 years prior to starting with OvuSense. During her first cycle of use a number of atypical cycle characteristics were identified, and although she ovulated it was late in the cycle.
The late ovulation is repeated in cycle 2 and Letrozole was prescribed by her clinician at the start of the 3rd cycle.
The Letrozole resulted in a much shorter follicular phase and ovulation nearer the middle of the month. OvuSense Pro successfully screens for cycle issues, provides actionable insights, and continued monitoring confirms (in this case) that treatment successfully restores ovulation.
What are the benefits of using OvuSense Pro?
Not only does OvuSense Pro help you and your patient understand their cycle, it helps them feel that they are taking back control of their fertility. With OvuSense Pro you’ll now know exactly what effect your recommendations and treatment are having. OvuSense Pro provides actionable feedback at a glance when you want it. There is a huge benefit for patients with PCOS and irregular cycles as well as those in the sub-fertile category.
- OvuCore™ a sensor which is placed in the vagina. This is the most accurate and should be used in cases of irregular ovulation, or concerns that ovulation exists.
- OvuFirst™ is skin based and can be used for those with regular ovulation.

OvuFirst™ - OvuCore™ - OvuSense® Pro
With OvuSense Pro your patient can use either of our two sensors. Both pair with the OvuSense Pro software that you will use on your web portal.
When you are ready to have your patients use OvuSense Pro, have them visit www.ovusense.com, choose a sensor, plus the OvuSense Pro plan.
Your patient will get her information on their phone or tablet. You will be notified when they begin. All the details are available in the Getting Started area. We provide the practice information and a discount code to help patients with the process.
How does OvuSense work?
The OvuSense App plots the data on a daily chart and updates the cycle characteristics for the user. This information is also sent to your web portal for plotting and analysis.
On the www.ovusense.com website the patient has a few choices. First they choose their sensor, the OvuCore sensor works best with the OvuSense Pro system you will use in your practice. Then at the final step for their service they choose "Pro". All these details will be sent with your welcome packet.
If your patient is not yet using OvuSense, it's the OvuCore sensor you should recommend. It's inserted in the vagina much like a tampon, and measures continuous Core Body Temperature (cCBT) every five minutes overnight with an extremely high resolution of 0.003° Celsius/ 0.0054° Fahrenheit.
OvuSense also offers the OvuFirst sensor, which is based on the OvuCore technology but is worn on the skin overnight. It provides more convenience but with less accuracy. Although you can still see the data recorded with OvuFirst in the OvuSense Pro portal, it may provide less useful insight, particularly if your patient has significant variability in their temperature results due to issues such as PCOS.
Below is the OvuSense Family. A number of women are not yet working with a medical provider, they primarily just want to track when they ovulate. For them we provide the sensors (Core - vaginal and First - skin based) they then connect these to their mobile device.
Your patients will use the same sensors; but will select OvuSense Pro.
