Understanding cycle characteristics

OvuSense is unique. It uses Core Body Temperature to predict ovulation using current cycle data, confirm ovulation, and produce detailed cycle patterns which show what is happening to the level of progesterone throughout each cycle. The standard version of OvuSense can be used to track ovulation, and observe cycle patterns by eye.

Launched in 2020, OvuSense® Pro provides in-depth cycle pattern analysis, automatically flagging each cycle pattern type identified below, aiding diagnosis and treatment of ovulatory issues.

OvuSense Users can purchase OvuSense® Pro as a subscription upgrade, and then share their data with their doctor if they want to. The user and their doctor access the unique insights of OvuSense® Pro through a dedicated encrypted online portal.

Which fertility monitor is right for me?

Compare OvuSense with other methods for monitoring your ovulation and reproductive cycle.

As you consider which fertility monitor fits you best some typical things to consider are:

  1. How large a fertile window will it detect so you can maximize the time when you're trying to conceive
  2. How accurate is it at confirming ovulation - the less accurate the less chance of it helping you in your next cycle
  3. Can it predict ovulation using the current cycle data - something we like to call realtime prediction
  4. Does the system work for PCOS and irregular cycles
  5. Can it help your doctor screen for fertility issues
  6. Can it help you and your doctor monitor your medication or treatment

Each of the statistics quoted below are derived from clinical evidence available on fertility monitoring methods and products. Pro refers to the OvuSense Pro clinician portal. Click on the 'i' icon next to each method in the table, or directly on the method in the table on mobile devices to find out more about the clinical evidence.
