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.

OvuSense is the easiest thing to use, no messing about. Yes, you have to wash it before and after but that's only thing. It's so easy to work and the Sensor cannot be felt once inside. I like the fact that it's natural and no chemicals, so you don't have to worry about any after effects once your efforts are completed.

I did not know that I ovulated and stand by the fact that I wasn't ovulating until my first cycle with OvuSense. I was so surprised to find out that not only was I ovulating, but it was almost a week later in the 28 day cycle! No way I would've have known that if it hadn't been for OvuSense. I also tend to bleed randomly, like pre and post a period which puzzled me for my cycle length as some of the "spotting" would be so heavy, that I would need to use some hygiene product - and the next day nothing. Truth be told I was all over the place and could have never figured a true ovulation window without OvuSense.

I tried OPKs and every day they told me I was ovulating, I didn't have periods so something was wrong. I tried to track my cycle length but, as mentioned, it was all over the place so that went out the window as it was near impossible to predict the next cycle length! I also put on a pile of weight last summer for no reason and my periods stopped until I had reflexology (approx 5 months without anything until reflex).

As far as medications, I was taking 1500mg (1 three times a day) of Metfotmin. I also cut out all fizzy drinks from my diet and lost weight. In addition, I was timing my intercourse correctly with OvuSense. All those factors led me to finally get pregnant with my third baby - just one cycle with OvuSense too. I'm so happy, I feel like I have literally 'bought a baby' with my investment of OvuSense.

This is my little baby with a strong heart beat at 6 weeks and 3 days. Takes me back to conception on 4th April which is exactly what my OvuSense monitor told me. First cycle I used it and managed it! Cannot recommend this machine enough.

My advice is never give up or else you will never know how close you came to your goal.

My BMI IS APPROX 37, so if it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. Stay strong and take control of your fertility.

Best wishes.
