Lindsay's story

Well ladies, it's official!  I got a confirmed pregnancy yesterday!! Delighted is not the word!!  Just need to take things easy now!!! ?

Linday Bray 1

Lindsay Bray

Here's my full story.....
 
I was diagnosed with PCOS in my teens, I really didn’t know what it meant or what to expect later in life. To be honest, I put it to the back of my mind. I was on the contraceptive pill to regulate my cycles and all as far as I was aware seemed ok!
 
Roll on a few years and I meet my husband and wanted a family and that is when my education started! After trying for a baby for over 2 years, I was finally accepted for IVF. This was no easy task and I was meant to be on an extremely strict diet for 4 months to lose enough weight to have an acceptable BMI.

Bethany's story

My name is Bethany and I was diagnosed with PCOS after our first daughter was born.

Long story short, I never got a period back after giving birth to our daughter. I have the non-insulin resistance type of PCOS, so after trying Clomid and Femara with a poor response, I was told by 2 different doctors our next step would be IVF.   I'm a nurse and thought I was ovulating even though my progesterone levels were boarder-line.

We ended up buying the OvuSense and found out I was ovulating even though the specialist didn't think I was.  When I showed them my OvuSense charts, they still weren't impressed. I also went Gluten free and dairy free 3 months prior and I think that may have helped.

This was my chart a couple months before we got pregnant. We were still on Femara for this cycle:

Bethany

I was so convinced that I was ovulating as my OvuSense showed me that I was, my husband and I agreed to try naturally while using the OvuSense before trying IVF. On my second cycle of no meds, ultrasounds, lab work or testing we got pregnant!!!  

Here is the month when I got pregnant.  OvuSense told me that I had ovulated March 19th 2016:

 Bethany BFP

 

We are now 14 weeks and everything looks perfect so far. My OB was in shock when I called to tell her!

I just wanted to let you know if you guys keep track of how many pregnancies you've made possible. My husband and I will be forever thankful to you all. 

I hope I can bring some hope to fellow ladies with PCOS because I remember how hopeless I was feeling.

Much love,

Bethany xx

Megan's fertility story

Hello!  My name is Megan, and I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 20.  Thanks to OvuSense, PCOS Diva Jumpstart Program and chiropractic help from my Doctor, I'm now pregnant with my first baby correlating exactly when OvuSense told me I had ovulated! 

My cycles used to be regular when first started getting my period in middle school.  However, once I hit high school, they became irregular.  Later on, when my husband and I wanted to start having kids, we first tried to induce ovulation with Clomid as prescribed by my doctor but, I did not ovulate according to the blood tests.  The same results came back when we tried Femara and an HCG trigger shot. All of these drugs made me feel very ill, and I believe contributed to weight gain and depression. My next step was to see a specialist; but, knowing that they would just include more drugs and shots, we decided to try some natural approaches.

Fiona's story

I'm Fiona.  I was diagnosed with PCOS and struggled for 2 years to conceive.  Thanks to OvuSense, I'm now pregnant!

When I was 15 years old, I was diagnosed with PCOS after absent periods for over a year.  I was put on Metformin;  I suppose that I didn't realize the struggles I would face later on in my life when I wanted to have a child.

I met my now Husband in 2010. I  was upfront with him from day one that I may have trouble conceiving but that didn't bother him in the slightest; he said he would do whatever it takes when the time came for us to start trying for a baby!  Well, that time came soon after we got engaged in 2013.  After many months of unsuccessful attempts, we decided to wait till after our wedding in September 2014 to go see the doctor and see what they were able to do for us. I was 27 and my husband 30.

We (mainly me!) spent the next few months going for different tests to check what may be the issue. All tests came back clear except the cysts on my ovaries.

In January 2015, a lovely friend of mine told me about OvuSense (I had used Clearblue ovulation sticks for about 6 months unsuccessfully before realising they don't always work well with ladies who have PCOS!).  I spent hours reading through the OvuSense website with my husband and discussing the money. We decided we would try OvuSense with the 4 monthly payment plan, which worked out great for us!

Colleen's story

My name is Colleen, after being diagnosed 4 years ago with PCOS, I am now pregnant with our first baby thanks to OvuSense!  

Here is my fertility journey:

In 2011 I had a cyst rupture and was  diagnosed with PCOS. I was on birth control at the time, so they could not verify this with blood tests, but based on my menstrual cycle history and numerous small cysts the doctor thought it was likely. I was told that the treatment for PCOS was birth control, which I was already on, so to keep taking it, but that when I wanted to have children I may have some difficulty.

Fast forward three years, my husband and I were ready to expand our family. I went to my new GYN/OB, as we had recently moved, told her about the suspected PCOS and she did bloodwork to confirm; I did have PCOS. She gave me a prescription for Clomid and Provera, to bring on my period, and sent me on my way. No discussion of other treatment, follow up, alternative methods, etc. I wasn’t satisfied with this and began to do my own research.

I learned about ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) and basal body temperature (BBT), but didn’t have any luck. OPKs didn’t work for me and BBT didn’t fit well into my lifestyle with different wake-up times for work. There had to be another way to confirm ovulation and that is when I stumbled across the OvuSense Fertility Monitor!

Caroline's story

Late ovulation and pregnant after 3 years trying, thanks to OvuSense.

Caroline is 28 and has been trying to conceive for the last 3 years. After stopping the contraceptive pill, Caroline noticed that she started to gain weight and began to notice an increase in bodily hair.

Around this time, to help identify when she was fertile, Caroline decided to purchase a Clearblue fertility monitor. After a while she felt that the monitor she purchased just wasn’t working for her. "I have a whole drawer full of OPKs and strips, and I kept getting let down by them as I never experienced a peak when using them. I just knew that something wasn’t right". Continue reading

Akilah's story

First baby after two cycles with OvuSense

My name is Akilah and here is my fertility story... I am happy to say that the 2 week wait was well worth it this time. After using OvuSense for the second month, I finally have my BFP (big fat positive).

A-2-3-Weeks-Pregnancy-Confirmation

My husband and I are both so very happy. Thank you to everyone in the OvuSense team and to all you lovely ladies here for all your advice and support in this group (PCOS Fertility Support). I truly believe we could not have done it without this group and OvuSense as my doctor has not been very helpful.

Thank you. Let the 9 month journey begin xx Akilah x

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
