"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."

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.

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.

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.
