  • Dr. Mary, Chiropractor, talks about her fertility journey with OvuSense - Blog #2

    Hello everyone! I’m a newly-sense (to OvuSense!) and I love how open and supportive and encouraging everyone is in the OvuSense Users Group. :)  Anyways, I figured it is my turn to share my fertility story.

    Long story short, I have wicked PCOS and I haven’t gotten a visit from 'Aunt Flo' (aka my period) in over 3 years.  My doctor told me taking temps would just drive me crazy.  So, I made 2018 my year to get healthy and to make myself knowledgeable of my alien cycle.

    This year I’m playing with my nutrition, so will keep you all posted!  As a chiropractor, I’m excited that I may have something to offer my female patients trying to conceive.

  • Dr. Mary, Chiropractor, talks about her personal fertility journey with OvuSense - Blog #1

    Hello everyone! I’m a newly-sense (to OvuSense!) and I love how open and supportive and encouraging everyone is in the OvuSense Users Group. :)  Anyways, I figured it is my turn to share my fertility story.

    Some interesting information I want to share as a Chiropractor, craniosacral therapist, etc... I began practicing what I preached and started getting it done on me since May 2017.
    Nothing else changed in my lifestyle and 6 months later, I had an ultrasound tech go in vaginally to look at my poor overworked ovaries, and she actually found a 1.6mm “bubble” amongst the .6mm bubbles.

  • Fertility Apps and Monitors – Can they really help you conceive?

    With advancing technology, we have come to rely on Apps for many things in our lives, be it shopping, music or social media and now even Apps for your fertility! Recently there has been a great deal of media attention surrounding the benefits of Apps and Monitors for fertility, but can they really help you get pregnant?

    My patients tell me that they feel really confused as to which is the best fertility App or Monitor to use. Recent research studies have found that fertility Apps used alone are generally ineffective and do not accurately show a woman when she should try and conceive (Setton et al. 2016; Duane et al. 2016), resulting in even greater confusion.

    In this blog I review the most commonly used fertility Apps and Monitors, explain what they are, how they work and who they are useful for.

    Most importantly, I review their accuracy, including their ability to identify fertile days and ovulation, as well as considering the customer support they offer and the all-important cost. However, before I start it’s really important to explain one crucial difference between Fertility Apps and Monitors.
