If you’re reading this, you’re probably already aware that having an irregular cycle can make it difficult to predict your ovulation date which in turn leads to difficulty getting pregnant. Compounding this issue is the fact that most fertility monitors on the market are unable to account for an irregular cycle, and as such, often provide inaccurate results.
In contrast, the OvaCue technology provides a reliable ovulation prediction method for trying-to-conceive women with irregular cycles (as well as women with regular cycles, of course). Here’s why: An irregular cycle is often correlated with some degree of hormonal imbalance. While other fertility monitors predict ovulation based on the attainment of a pre-determined level of a given hormone (either luteinizing hormone, estrogen, or a combination of the two), the OvaCue has no predetermined level set — rather, it interprets each reading in your cycle in relation to your previous readings. That is to say, the OvaCue doesn’t look for a specific reading based on statistical averages, it looks for an overall trend in your body’s own unique readings. This method of ovulation determination is particularly suitable for women with irregular cycles since a hormonal imbalance may prevent you from reaching a predetermined hormone level prior to ovulation.
