  • The guilt of secondary infertility

    In our PCOS Facebook Support group we have a lovely mixture of group members, some who are trying to conceive for the first time and many who may already have children. I recently asked the women in the group suffering from secondary infertility (the difficulty in conceiving after having previously conceived and carrying the pregnancy to term or suffering a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy), how not being able to conceive again made them feel.

  • 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

  • The cost of infertility

    By Kate Davies, RN, BSc(Hons), FP Cert - Fertility Nurse

    When faced with problems conceiving the furthest thought from your mind is money. Disappointment is most likely to be your initial feeling, followed quickly by anger, resentment and confusion. This is the emotional cost of infertility; an all-consuming state of utter despair. However after a while you pick yourself up, dust yourself down and begin to look at your options.
     
    You probably think ‘We’ll do whatever it takes to have a baby’ but inevitably the reality of your situation creeps in and tough financial considerations have to be made. Have you considered how much you would be prepared to spend in order to conceive?

  • Jenny's story

    Secondary infertility, now pregnant with baby number 2

    My name is Jenny and here is my fertility story. I am 27 years old and I have PCOS. I am married, with one daughter, and I just found out that I am pregnant with my second after using OvuSense realtime fertility monitor for just one cycle. Recently, I purchased OvuSense to know for definite if I was ovulating, or not. I used OvuSense each day for one cycle and it was great to see the messages each morning. It filled me with hope and confidence that my body was working in the way that it should. Continue reading

  • Amy's story

    Baby number 3 with OvuSense

    Hi, my name is Amy and this is my fertility story and journey...

    I am 29 and with a new partner now and have been married previously to someone else. I'm studying at University part-time and I work part time doing nails and beauty. I have 2 children who are 3 and 9 but I would like another baby together with my new partner. I just want to say that although I already have kids, at no point is that less painful when you want another, even though people may think it is.

    I found out about OvuSense after joining the support group (PCOS Fertility Support) on Facebook. I decided to buy OvuSense after seeing so many ladies posting their charts in the group. 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

  • 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
