Hi, I’m Jenna. First of all, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to share my story! This is the first time that I have ever believed in two products (PCOS Diva and OvuSense fertility monitor) so strongly and it just makes me so ecstatic to share my experience. So here goes…
I’m 36 years old and I live in Arizona with my husband. We have been together 10 years and we have a 4 year old son who we managed to conceive using Clomid and Metformin. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2009.
My partner and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now. Before finding OvuSense and PCOS Diva, we tried the following products and fertility treatments:
- Clearblue Ovulation Monitor
- Timed Intercourse
- IUI with Fertility Meds — Femara, Follistim, Ovidrel, Progesterone
We bought OvuSense real time fertility monitor after deciding to stop going to the fertility doctor. All the fertility treatments were just too stressful and didn’t seem to be working for us.
I came across an article on PCOS Diva where Amy discussed this new fertility monitor called OvuSense that is on the market and is perfect for women with PCOS. Being the research fanatic that I am, I looked up all the information that I could possibly find on the OvuSense monitor. I then spoke to my husband about it; he said this may be just what we have been looking for to figure out exactly what is going on with my crazy body. We ordered OvuSense and have been amazed with the information we have learned about my cycles.
I am on my 4th cycle using my OvuSense and I’ve being charting with OvuSense since March of 2015. In May, I had issues with the Sensor and got a replacement by the company. By the way, the customer service for OvuSense is amazing and my Sensor was replaced really quickly. They were so nice about it and it wasn’t an issue. I then carried on charting with OvuSense in June and July, tracking all my cycles.
Using OvuSense to track your cycles is a brilliant way to actually ‘see’ what is going. I can see when my actual ovulation is going to take place and, as a result of using OvuSense, I have learned to also watch and understand my body, and how I am feeling during my cycle, which also helps me to know when ovulation is happening. It is a great way to actually see the whole story as opposed to just one chapter. Also, the support from the OvuSense staff and the closed group on Facebook that they run (PCOS Fertility Support) are amazing.
After using OvuSense for a few cycles, I also started with PCOS Diva’s products and program. I have had confirmed ovulation each month with OvuSense however it wasn’t until I started using the supplements from PCOS Diva that I actually saw a drastic increase in temps! The temps were higher from the very first day I tested. As a result of using the supplements from PCOS Diva, I actually ovulated 5 days earlier than normal and my luteal phase has lengthened. I was so excited to see this!
I have been following the PCOS Diva website for well over a year now and love reading all of the articles and listening to the Podcasts from the different interviews Amy has been part of. I feel like the information is “real life” and Amy truly puts experience and research together for the benefit of women with PCOS to help and support us. When I talk about the website and information to others I describe it as a place I can go to for information, and feel like I am being empowered to be a better ‘me’.
As a result of following Amy’s advice on PCOS Diva, I decided to invest in myself and purchase the supplements from her website and I am so happy that I have. I felt better within the first week of taking the Essential Vitamins and using the Protein, Fiber and Power Greens.
For so long I was buying the cheap vitamins at the store and never saw or felt any different. Now I take the PCOS Diva supplements and use the OvuSense monitor together to track my cycles. I feel so much more confident in my cycles and more in control in my fertility than I ever have before. I have also seen a significant changes in my OvuSense charts; and the changes I have noticed from my health have surprised me as well. I can see a difference in my skin as I usually break out with hormonal acne around my jawline and on my neck; this month it is almost non-existent! I have also had people ask me what hair products I switched too, as my hair is looking a lot shinier and healthier these days too. With the supplements and the implementation of exercise from PCOS Diva, I think I am definitely on the right track to being a Diva myself and I really feel like a pregnancy for me is just around the corner too.
My advice to others here is that you have to believe in yourself and know that it is possible to get PCOS under control. I have struggled for many years knowing that something just wasn’t right and feeling down about myself. I think by investing in ‘me’, it has given me a sense of power over PCOS and over my fertility. I think that combined with FINALLY being able to see results of the changes with a supplementation regimen by using my OvuSense, this has been a great confidence boost too as I can physically see the changes I am making taking affect, and I am able track my progress ongoing with my OvuSense monitor.
So below is my proof and why I love PCOS Diva and OvuSense together! In June, I had just started PCOS Diva’s program and supplements. You can see that my temperature was lower and my luteal phase was shorter in length.
In July, I was using on the PCOS program and using the supplements. What a difference! You can clearly see my temps are up and I ovulated 5 days earlier than the month before which means my luteal phase is also longer, giving me a better chance of ‘keeping’ a pregnancy going forward.
Thanks for letting me share my fertility journey. I recommend using OvuSense and PCOS Diva together to anyone who is trying to conceive as I believe it’s helped me so much. Ladies, don’t give up, you can get your PCOS and fertility under control. Baby dust to everyone. X
