  • How to accurately time a Progesterone test

    Your doctor may have suggested that you have a progesterone test to confirm ovulation or to assess your progesterone levels in the luteal phase.

     The main test to determine whether a woman is ovulating is by a blood test, which assesses the level of the hormone Progesterone. Progesterone increases in the blood stream following ovulation and reaches it’s peak at 7 days before the next menstrual period. This test is termed a 21-day Progesterone test and is performed on day 21 of a 28 day cycle.

  • We used donor sperm and OvuSense and conceived in just 3 cycles!

    My wife and I wanted a baby and so we started looking for a donor in 2011.  As we are a same-sex couple, obviously our only choice is to use donor sperm in order to conceive.  It’s hard work to find the right donor and with AI (artificial insemination) but we are proof that miracles can happen!

    Obviously, timing it all is really critical with a donor as you have to know exactly when you are ovulating and you only get one chance each month and you don't want to waste it! We found OvuSense and bought it thinking it would help us to get pregnant (and it did!).  Just 3 cycles and it happened for us!

  • Dr. Mary, Chiropractor, talks about her fertility journey with OvuSense - Blog #2

    Hello everyone! I’m a newly-sense (to OvuSense!) and I love how open and supportive and encouraging everyone is in the OvuSense Users Group. :)  Anyways, I figured it is my turn to share my fertility story.

    Long story short, I have wicked PCOS and I haven’t gotten a visit from 'Aunt Flo' (aka my period) in over 3 years.  My doctor told me taking temps would just drive me crazy.  So, I made 2018 my year to get healthy and to make myself knowledgeable of my alien cycle.

    This year I’m playing with my nutrition, so will keep you all posted!  As a chiropractor, I’m excited that I may have something to offer my female patients trying to conceive.

  • Dr. Mary, Chiropractor, talks about her personal fertility journey with OvuSense - Blog #1

    Hello everyone! I’m a newly-sense (to OvuSense!) and I love how open and supportive and encouraging everyone is in the OvuSense Users Group. :)  Anyways, I figured it is my turn to share my fertility story.

    Long story short, I have wicked PCOS and I haven’t gotten a visit from 'Aunt Flo' (aka my period) in over 3 years.  My doctor told me taking temps would just drive me crazy.  So, I made 2018 my year to get healthy and to make myself knowledgeable of my alien cycle.

    Some interesting information I want to share as a Chiropractor, craniosacral therapist, etc... I began practicing what I preached and started getting it done on me since May 2017.
    Nothing else changed in my lifestyle and 6 months later, I had an ultrasound tech go in vaginally to look at my poor overworked ovaries, and she actually found a 1.6mm “bubble” amongst the .6mm bubbles.

  • It's finally sunk in....I'm pregnant! We were due to start IVF in a few months.

    I still can’t quite believe that I’m writing this. It’s finally sunk in.

    I know a few of you know the difficulty we’ve had (even just getting me to ovulate!!).  Out of 9 medicated cycles, I’ve only ovulated 4 times!!! And if it wasn’t for my OvuSense, I wouldn’t have known and we’d have blindly continued on assuming the medication was working when it had stopped.
