Charting Your Fertility With OvaCue (Review and A Giveaway!)

CONTEST OVER! CONGRATS TO

Shaunda Eppes #390

If you are a loyal reader of my blog, you know that I have been having a heck of a time getting pregnant with our third child. I have also had 3 losses, but now I can officially say FOUR. I say officially four, because when I went into see my fertility specialist a few weeks ago, he told me something that alarmed me. He said he was looking through my files and saw that I DID indeed have a tubal pregnancy WHEN I was pregnant with my daughter… Say What?! Ya, I NEVER knew that… till then. I had to pick my mouth up off of the ground. For when I DID have the tubal surgery it was, to my knowledge because the doctors THOUGHT it was a tubal, but when they took my tube out, they saw that it was only a cyst. That is what they told me… nice huh?

Anyways, back to what I was saying…

So, my cycles are a bit all over the place. I have been on pretty much every vitamin and supplement you can think of. I have tried all ovulation prediction tests, temped EVERY single morning to see when I would ovulate and put it all on a graph. Sure, I realized when I ovulated, but still was NOT get pregnant… hmmm.

So, I saw online the OvaCue Monitor and really really wanted to give it a shot. Afterall, I have tried everything else. I contacted FairhavenHealth.com and they agreed to letting me review one! Oh the joy I was feeling, seriously, this was so awesome…

I received it in the mail and since you have to start using it on cycle day 2 of  your cycle, I had to wait a few days. My OvaCue Monitor came with the Vaginal Sensor, which is a MUST I am finding out, to use with your OvaCue monitor for extra accurate results. The Vaginal Sensor does not come with the OvaCue Monitor but can be bought separately.

When cycle day 2 came along (finally!!! Ugh..) I programmed the monitor to how long my average cycle length was. Then I made sure the Oral sensor was plugged into the monitor and pressed the O for Oral Sensor, and placed it on my tongue. You wait for a second or two and then the reading is complete. You save it and you are done. It takes a few seconds each morning to do. You then can wash the oral sensor with mild soap and water and dry it for next use. You must use this oral sensor around the same time every morning for accurate results and you must do it upon waking up. That means no brushing your teeth or drinking anything!!! I keep this by my bed, so it is there each morning as a reminder when I get up. But then again, my brain is programmed for me to do this every  morning, because I am always thinking about it…. that is what happens when you have been ttc for over 2 years..

When you are done with your menstrual cycle, usually around cycle day 7, you can start using the vaginal sensor. You use this in the evening, around the same time, each day. You simply plug-in the vaginal sensor into the bottom of the monitor. Next you press the “V” for vaginal sensor and insert the sensor into your vag. Then you press next and it will take your vag reading. If you have intercourse, don’t use this for at least 7 hours, as the spermies might make for an inaccurate reading. Sometimes it says your reading is over “400”. If that is the case, you will need to redo the reading. This happens from time to time, but you just redo it and it only takes a few seconds too. Then, just press save!

Now at first your calendar days will be white, but as you take your oral and vaginal readings each day, they will start to change in color. From white to light blue, to medium blue then dark blue then a pink box (ovulation had occurred when you see the pink box, usually). From time to time you MIGHT also get a purple box in between your pink box. IF that happens, that means you could have tried to ovulate but did not, or maybe you have dropped two eggs. I have had a few questionable moments with my Ova Cue monitor, since getting it, and I have signed up over at their public forum, and have my questions answered right away! I LOVE that supportive forum. It has everything you need to know about OvaCue and plus other members share their experiences too. I have learned so much.

Yep, this is only HALF of ‘em (from last month…)

 

This is my second cycle using this monitor and I am loving it. It has really shown me more about my cycles, that I could have missed. It can tell you up to 7 days when your ovulation will occur, giving you ample time to get that baby dancing in!!! This monitor can help take stress off of trying to conceive and let you relax a little bit more. Plus, the accuracy level of the OvaCue Monitor is 98% while others are only 73-94%, so that is nice.

Great Features:

  • FDA-approved and recommended by fertility specialists
  • Simple to use and mess free with no additional purchases necessary
  • Track your cycle daily with the calendar-view display
  • Predict your ovulation up to 5-7 days in advance
  • Confirm ovulation with the vaginal sensor

So, if you are trying to conceive I would highly recommend the OvaCue Monitor. This month I also took my first round of Clomid and will be having my first IUI! Wish me luck!
