Karen's story

My name is Karen.  I don't know about everyone else but I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to OvuSense.

They a) made this machine that is SUPER accurate b) made it affordable (relative to the cost of fertility drugs and treatments) and c) offer TONS of individualized support EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

A huge part of my journey with PCOS and trying to conceive has always been "knowledge is power." I want to better understand my body and my condition and OvuSense allows me to do that AND help my doctors!

I'm just so SO thankful and I look forward to do the day when I can attribute thanks because of a pregnancy (one day!).

Thanks again for all your help and support,

Karen x

Rachel's story

Hi -

I'm Rachel.  I have used OvuSense for one cycle now and know that my ovulation is not regular either. OvuSense confirmed ovulation for me within a week and showed that I have a short luteal phase which I can now work on.

I may not have known this crucial information if I hadnt used OvuSense and could have gone on trying and not got pregnant, or miscarried early, but now I can do something about it and give myself the best chances.

It is worth it for me just knowing what your body is doing! Plus the support on the OvuSense Facebook Users Group is amazing.

Wish me luck,

Rachel

Karen's story

My name is Karen and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years.  We only bought OvuSense a month ago and we are now pregnant!  Must be the fastest OvuSense conception in history!   I was not pregnant a month ago and started using it part way through a cycle - I noticed a rise and went for it.  

Here's my positive result:

Karen

As someone with PCOS who was told less than a year ago we would never conceive without medical assistance, then to have a miscarriage and told it was a fluke I ovulated.    To have a tool like OvuSense confirm I was ovulating in a week, and for it to be accurate without a formal baseline reading in place was amazing!

Best of luck ladies.  Please don't give up.

Karen :)

Lori's story

Hi -

I'm Lori  and this is my 5th month using OvuSense, never had a temp this low before.  See my chart below:

Lori McKay 1

It was kind of strange and I wasn't sure if I should be worried, or not.

I was starting to get upset with my temps and charting, and after speaking to my partner we decided that I was getting too worked up and decided that we were going to stop using OvuSense for few months and just relax over it all.

But we've been really blessed - I'm now pregnant. 

Lori McKay

Please don't give up.  Best wishes to you all.

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

Kate's story

Hi -

My name is Kate and I just wanted to give you all a little hope! I have been using my OvuSense for 1.5 years and this is the first ever positive pregnancy test!!!!  See my chart below when OvuSense told me when I ovulated on April 3rd 2016.

Kate Garcia

I'm over the moon.....!  I haven't even told my husband yet as he is still sleeping; today is actually our wedding anniversary too!  I know I still need to get it confirmed with the doctor via a blood test.  It's been 5 years ttc so I can't help but be excited! 

Please pray, send good thoughts vibes whatever my way thanks for all the support!

Please don't give up and best wishes to you all.

Demystifying Fertility Tests

After months of trying to unsuccessfully conceive naturally, you will want to find out what is wrong and what can be done. At first this decision may feel a little scary. As well as being afraid of what the doctors might find, you are also likely to be pretty terrified as to what the tests involve.

I have no idea

Fertility Blood Tests

laboratory-313864_1280

If you have been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for 1 year or more, then it is likely that you and your partner may need some help in conceiving. However, if you are concerned that something is wrong, then you can get help sooner. Seeing your doctor will start the process and your doctor will be able to run some simple tests to find out if there are any problems.

One of my most asked questions is ‘Which fertility blood tests should I have done to check if everything is ok?”

Well, the simple answer is – there is no simple answer! It really all depends on your general health, whether you have any conditions such as PCOS and how long you have been trying to conceive.

As an OvuSense user, you can book a free consultation with me, the OvuSense Fertility Nurse. One of the things I advise you are on which blood tests are right for you based on your individual situation. However here is a general round up of the fertility bloods tests that are often recommend.
