  • Miffy's story

    Secondary infertility, now pregnant with baby number 3

    Hi, I'm Miffy and here is my fertility story and journey.

    I've be trying for baby no three recently. My first baby was a stillborn (conceived her naturally after 6 months of trying). We then tried for 18 months after that with no success and it was at this point that I found out I had PCOS.

    The doctors said that I needed to lose weight and be put on medication. We tried again to conceive and we were successful. My daughter is now 5 years old, after trying for her for 4.5 years. It's not nice being on fertility medication. We wanted to have a third baby, so I underwent ovarian drilling and then lost weight (as my doctor suggested) only to be told that IVF was our only option. We were so upset. Continue reading

  • Pamela's story

    My fertility journey so far, with OvuSense

    My name is Pamela. I`m 34 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 16 years (since I was 18) and this is my fertility story so far...

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 14. I had always wondered why my friends would get their period 4 weeks apart on the same day and I never knew when to expect mine! I always had very heavy periods and would be in a lot of pain; I took a trip to my doctor with my mum and she asked what they could do for me. It was then the doctor ordered a blood test for PCOS which confirmed my diagnosis. Continue reading

  • Suzanne's story

    Multiple miscarriages and now success with OvuSense

    Hello, my name is Suzanne and here is my fertility story and journey!

    I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2010.   I have a son called Jake, who is 5 years old.  Since then, I have had two miscarriages and one therapeutic termination of my daughter unfortunately, at 15 short weeks.

    Two years of trying after that and no ovulation.  I then lost weight, started taking supplements, was put on Metformin.  It was around this time that I found OvuSense and purchased it. Continue reading

  • Gemma's story

    I took control of my fertility with OvuSense, now I'm pregnant!

    My name is Gemma and here is my story...

    I'm 32, and have been married to my lovely husband for 5 years. We met in school and have been together about 17 years. We had been trying for a baby for about a year, and went to my doctor as recommended, through blood tests and scans I was diagnosed with PCOS.

    My first doctor was very unsympathetic, and prescribed a couple of months of Clomid (without monitoring). I was testing for ovulation myself, and also temping and knew that I wasn't ovulating but she was very reluctant to send me for any monitoring. Eventually I got frustrated and changed doctors surgeries. My next doctor was a lot more sympathetic and got me a referral for a fertility doctor. Continue reading

  • Kirsty's story

    Secondary infertility, 3 week Luteal Phase and now pregnant

    Hi, my name is Kirsty and I’m pregnant with my second baby after using OvuSense for 2 cycles. With OvuSense, I was able not only work out, if and when, I was ovulating, but how long my Luteal Phase was. Turns out, we were trying to conceive at completely the wrong time.

    Here is my story:

    My husband and I have been trying for 2 years to conceive again as we already have a daughter together. I am 29 years old and the first time I got pregnant, I was 23. It took 6 months to get pregnant with my daughter, so we were really hoping it wouldn’t take as long as it did the first time. Unfortunately, we were wrong. I saw OvuSense advertised on Facebook and the fact it worked for women who have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), made me read more about it and eventually order one online. In addition, the OvuSense money back guarantee, ‘OvuSense Ovulation Promise’ really sold it for me as I didn’t think I was ovulating at all. Knowing that I could get my money back after 6 months if OvuSense didn’t detect ovulation for me, was a big relief financially. Continue reading

  • Kirsty's story

    Finally pregnant after 8 years of trying to conceive

    Here's my story & journey...

    Married at the age of 22 in 2002 and we started TTCing (trying to conceive) in 2005/6.  I was diagnosed with Prolactinoma (benign tumour in the pituitary gland) in 2007 and was put straight on Bromocriptine to shrink the tumour.

    At the same time, I was diagnosed with PCOS. Once the Prolactinoma was under control in 2009, I was given Clomid for 6 months, no pregnancy.  I was using OPKs (ovulation prediction kits) & BBT charting (basal body temping) but I wasn't getting anywhere & OPKs didn't seem to work.

  • Amy's story

    Pregnant with first baby, thanks to OvuSense

    My name is Amy and I just wanted to share some good news! I have PCOS and I managed to get pregnant after using OvuSense for 3 months. Here's my story.

    I was diagnosed at the age of 19 with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). My doctor at the time actually told me that my chances of getting pregnant were pretty low with PCOS. I knew I wanted to be a mother one day so, as you can imagine, I was completely devastated by this news. Since being diagnosed, I have been on the drug, Metformin to try and help my symptoms.

    My name is Angela and I'm a Nutritional Therapist in the UK. Recently, I have been supporting Ovusense and the Facebook forums attached with this fabulous fertility monitor over the last few months via a chance meeting with Kate Davies, Fertility Nurse for Ovusense, at the Fertility Show in London last year.
