OvuSense Fertility and Ovulation Monitor

How OvuSense can help detect your ovulation

  • Step 1: Every cycle is vital

    Women become less fertile with age due to variability in ovulation. Additionally, 70% of women do not ovulate in the middle of the month. The longer you keep trying to conceive and the older you get, the lower your chances of conception each month. Each year that passes from age 25 onwards, your chances of conception fall by 5%, so every cycle is vital.

    OvuSense predicts your ovulation one day in advance, usually within the first 10 days of use. OvuSense also tells you the day of ovulation, and your fertile window for each cycle. If you don't ovulate, OvuSense can show this too (which other products can't do). This vital information ensures you don't waste another single cycle.

  • Step 2: Are you using the right product?

    The clinical literature shows that as ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) measure Luteinising Hormone (LH), they sometimes indicate ovulation when none has occurred. Couples who use them could be attempting to conceive at the wrong time. In addition, using OPKs correctly means remembering to test 2-3 times a day, every day, throughout your entire cycle and at similar times, consistently.

    If you use OPKs, you could be spending up to $150 a month on LH kits and not even realize. OvuSense delivers 99% accuracy every single cycle, giving you confidence and putting you in control of your fertility.

  • Step 3: Some fertility conditions are hidden

    Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common cause of ovulatory problems, resulting in longer and/or irregular cycles. PCOS affects 5-10% of women. Women with PCOS, particularly those who are not overweight, often have elevated levels of Luteinising Hormone (LH), so ovulation predictor kits often show they've ovulated when they haven't.

    OvuSense shows you if you have late ovulation, which may be a sign you have PCOS, and avoids the hassle and clinically known inaccuracies associated with measuring LH.

  • Step 4: Most fertility conditions are simple

    The time between ovulation and the start of the next menstruation is known as the 'luteal phase'. Some women, particularly those with PCOS, may ovulate later in their cycle, resulting in a shorter luteal phase. A luteal phase of 9 days or less, may result in the lining of the uterus not growing properly each cycle, making it difficult to get pregnant.

    OvuSense pinpoints the exact day of ovulation with 99% accuracy and shows you the length of your luteal phase. Every month is vital and knowing exactly when you ovulate allows you to understand your cycle, and feel in control of your fertility.

  • Step 5: Almost all fertility conditions are treatable

    As women get closer to menopause, the quantity of eggs and frequency of ovulation starts to decline. Some women enter this phase of 'diminished ovarian reserve' (DOR) earlier, and although their cycles may remain constant, ovulation can drift to earlier in the cycle, resulting in difficulty getting pregnant.

    OvuSense predicts the onset of ovulation and can confirms ovulation with 99% accuracy, helping you identify if you are an 'early ovulator', or not. Knowing this helps you alter your timing of sex to improve your chances of conception.

  • Step 6: What if you need further medical treatment?

    Ovarian stimulation is the most common first treatment for women with ovulation problems or unexplained infertility. After this, ovarian stimulation with intrauterine insemination (IUI) is usually offered next. A cycle of IUI costs $650 to $2,500 and takes an average of 6.3 cycles to get pregnant - a total cost of $4,000 to $15,000 with a 16% success rate if you are under 35. However, couples that fail three successive rounds of IUI are unlikely to conceive with this technique.

    Knowing if and when you ovulate is vital for success, especially with IUI treatment. OvuSense is clinically proven to be 99% accurate for ovulation confirmation, giving you and your doctor the confidence to undergo treatment at the right time, saving you time and money.

  • Step 7: What about IVF?

    According to HFEA figures the cost of one IVF cycle - including drugs, fertility testing and consultation fees - is $10,000 to $20,000. IVF is a costly, uncomfortable and invasive process. Additionally, it generally takes 2-3 cycles of IVF to get pregnant, with a 40% success rate if you are under 35. Therefore, the total potential cost is $20,000 to $36,000 in the USA.

    Knowing if and when you ovulate, and if you have a certain cycle pattern (like short luteal phase), is vital if you end up having IVF. OvuSense is clinically proven to be 99% accurate, giving you and your doctor confidence to schedule your fertility treatments for maximum benefit.
