Priscilla G. On Advocating For Yourself and Your Fertility
By: Priscilla Goddard, Founder of Heirloom Fertility To the women sitting in the doctor’s office being told everything is normal or unexplainable: You know in your heart there’s a missing puzzle piece, but the results (that your doctor is telling you) say otherwise. Why am I not pregnant then, you ask yourself...

Diagnosis of Anovulatory Infertility
By Dr. Irfana Koita The term ‘anovulation’ is used medically when your ovaries do not release an oocyte (or egg) during your menstrual cycle. In this instance, ovulation has not taken place within one or perhaps many cycles. Chronic anovulation is a very common cause of infertility. Women who suffer from chron...

Line's story

My name is Line and I'm pregnant!  

Thank you Ovusense...after 5 years of trying... and 2 cycles with OvuSense, I now have this to show:

Line

When trying to conceive,  I took prenatal vitamins and my husband was on a variety of supplements like Zinc and B-vitamin.  In addition, my hubby managed got his sperm-count up, from 0.5 million to 4 million.

And by using Ovusense, we got pregnant as we knew exactly when I was ovulating.

Don't lose hope...!  Please keep trying.

Emily' story

I'm Emily.  I used OvuSense for 5 months to see if I was ovulating on my own, or not.  I'm now currently 9.5 weeks pregnant! 

Here's my chart the month I got pregnant.  My temperature never rose a lot with OvuSense but I was indeed pregnant :)

Erika's story

I'm Erika and I have been an OvuSense user since June 2015 and found out I was ovulating later in my cycle than my doctor thought!

I finally got pregnant in August 2015 after 6 years of trying!  Sadly, I miscarried after only 4wks. It proved to be the saddest day of my life and I thought I could just bounce back and try again right away but I just couldn't sadly.

Well it ended up being a lot harder emotionally and other things in my life piled on top, so here I am 5 months later. But, it's a new year and I finally had my period for the first time since the miscarriage (with the help of meds of course).

It's a new year (2016) and time to start again!!! I pray that we will be blessed this year with a healthy pregnancy and baby!

Please wish us luck and love!

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
