"OvuSense changed everything. It gave me back some of that control I desperately needed and it comforted me to know that all the data this medical device is gathering will help us conceive. The device gave us vital information. We saw that I ovulate incredibly late in my cycle, nearly a week after what we thought ...

“I bought my OvuSense in mid November 2018. We had 3 full cycles with OvuSense before conceiving on March 8th. This is a miracle device! Reading all of your posts for months gave me hope and I want to thank each and every one of you for that. I’m more of a quiet group member because I feared my comments or questions might be offensive or misinterpreted. I’ve learned so much from all of you by silently reading and seeing what worked and didn’t work for each of you! If you’re out there reading this, please know you’re not alone because I let the loneliness of this journey really eat away at me.
I added a blog post about my journey over on my blog and what I did to successfully conceive. We tried for 10+ months. Whatever season you are in, I truly believe everything happens for a reason and I have waited what seems like forever to share my story. I hope that at the very least, maybe just one of you doesn’t feel alone and can seek support or hope from me sharing. I share all of the products that we used and all of the research that I did to reach this stage. I’m 14 weeks today and I’m finally ready to share! Please feel free to ask me any and all questions!  This is a beautiful tribe of sisters that are here for one another during what seems like one of the hardest journeys there is.

Discovering a New Dream

Since a young age, Lana from Goodland, Kansas, believed she knew how she wanted to start her family: through adoption. She had been struggling with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) since she was a teenager, a hormonal disorder that affects a woman’s reproductive system. She and her husband, Andy, were excited about the future and welcomed the prospects of being parents.

In September 2017 at 36, Lana was shocked and excited to discover she was pregnant - something which seemed a very low probability during her 20s and early 30s. Because of her PCOS and her age, Lana was put in the high-risk pregnancy category, which meant she would need frequent doctors appointments and ultrasounds to make sure the pregnancy was progressing as it should and monitor for any risk factors.

Follow Your Intuition: How Trusting Her Data Helped Lead to One Woman’s First Pregnancy

When Sarah was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) at 23, she didn’t think much of it immediately. She was told that it might cause her some difficulty when she wanted to get pregnant, but at the time she wasn’t engaged to her then boyfriend (now husband) so trying to conceive was far from her mind. After getting married and talking with her husband, Rob, about beginning their family at 27, she spoke with a friend who encouraged her to talk with a reproductive endocrinologist right away.

“I Helped My Doctors Diagnose a Cyst Because I Knew I Wasn’t Ovulating”

Research has shown that in the US – and across the world – women are waiting longer and longer to have children due to a number of reasons including wanting to save up money in advance to finishing advanced education. But what does this mean on a personal level? For one woman – Stephanie, who is 37 and lives in North Carolina – it meant quickly understanding her fertility and educating herself about her ovulation cycle.

After taking birth control on and off throughout her 20s, Stephanie was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in her mid 20s through. During her annual OB-GYN exams, her doctor would often find cysts on her ovaries. To help control the symptoms of her PCOS and stop cysts from forming, Stephanie was put on a low-hormone birth control pill.

We used donor sperm and OvuSense and conceived in just 3 cycles!

My wife and I wanted a baby and so we started looking for a donor in 2011.  As we are a same-sex couple, obviously our only choice is to use donor sperm in order to conceive.  It’s hard work to find the right donor and with AI (artificial insemination) but we are proof that miracles can happen!

Obviously, timing it all is really critical with a donor as you have to know exactly when you are ovulating and you only get one chance each month and you don't want to waste it! We found OvuSense and bought it thinking it would help us to get pregnant (and it did!).  Just 3 cycles and it happened for us!

OvuSense really did work for me!

Hello,

I would like to provide the below testimonial, as OvuSense really did work for me!

In April 2017, following increasingly erratic periods and some high FSH readings (40+), I was told by an NHS fertility consultant that I was in premature menopausal transition and that I could expect to enter full menopause within the next 6-9 months.   I was aged 41 at that time.

He said that my chances of natural conception using my own eggs during that timeframe were 5%, and advised that infertility counselling - together with consideration of donated eggs - were my only options.
