User Testimonial: Emma, author of ItsMostlyOkay, discusses OvuSense & Secondary Infertility

Emma, author of the "ItsMostlyOkay" blog, discusses her struggles with secondary infertility and how OvuSense has helped her learn more about her cycle in a recent blog.

"During the last, nearly four years now, something I’ve never been 100% certain of is whether or not I’m actually ovulating. We started trying for a second baby back in 2015 and I duly bought and used ovulation sticks, given that they worked literally like a dream when we conceived Olivia. However second time round I found them to be increasingly unreliable. I seemed to get conflicting information from them – either nothing each month or several peak days. This meant I’d start using them really early to try and catch the right day, which ultimately meant spending loads of money."

User Testimonial: Vlogger Miranda J. Shares her Fertility Journey

Miranda began her fertility journey in 2015 and was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in 2016. 

Since then, she and her husband Tyler, who is in the military and frequently travels, have visited several doctors in the hopes of getting pregnant. After recently finding a new reproductive endocrinologist closer to their home, they’re now beginning a new regimen of medications that help stimulate ovulation and using OvuSense to learn more about her cycle. Earlier this year she started a YouTube channel to chronicle her journey and share some of the challenges that have come with the diagnosis.

User Testimonial: Cassandra, author of FitCouchPotato.com

"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 my fertility window was.

Not only did the device show that I tend to ovulate very late in my cycle, but it also showed that my luteal phase might be too short. Something that’s not the best when it comes to supporting a pregnancy. It also showed that I DON’T ovulate every month. I will definitely write a review about OvuSense and go into full detail in a separate blog but the short story is: I would recommend it to my fellow trying to conceive cysters."

“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.

The Road to Understanding Infertility
While many women aren’t diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) until later in life, some women find out as they are first starting their period – often without a proper explanation of what this means for their health or future fertility.

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.
