OvaCue Fertility Charting Blog
Hi! My name is Sarah, and I work with Fairhaven Health. We thought it might be helpful for people considering purchasing the OvaCue to see it in action. I already use the OvaCue on a daily basis to track my "somewhat regular" cycle. I will post my readings and explain how the OvaCue uses this data to predict ovulation with the oral sensor and confirm ovulation with the vaginal sensor.
Hi! My name is Whitney, and I also work for Fairhaven Health. I also use the OvaCue on a daily basis to track my cycle. We're hoping this blog can be helpful to women with all different cycles who use the OvaCue. In addition to us posting our own cycle data, we'll be providing "guest" charts to help interpret cycles that may not be so black and white.
We both will touch upon many of the common customer service questions we receive. Hopefully, this blog will provide you with a better understanding of how the OvaCue works, and the valuable insights it can provide into your monthly cycle. And of course, if you have any questions, we’re always available to help.
My vaginal readings are still elevated so far, so things are looking good for me as I sit here, 12 DPO.
I do have an announcement for you all… I’m headed to Europe tomorrow! Justin and I will be going to Ireland and London!! Sarah, who just got married 3 days ago, will be here to answer any questions that come up though. You’ll be seeing her on the community forums and she’ll be handling my emails, so no worries there.
Thanks for your patience while I’m away!
Since my chart isn’t really showing us too much excitement right this moment, I wanted to share something else with you. Many of you know Sarah, the OvaCue specialist who fills in for me when I’m out of the office. Well, she is getting married tomorrow!
I am so excited for her, so send relaxing and happy thoughts her way on her big day tomorrow!
I’m currently chugging along in my TWW (two week wait). My vaginal readings are still above that low that I saw back on CD 12, which is what I’m keeping my eyes on. If you take a peek, you can see that they are declining a bit now. Since they’re still elevated though, and I’m not experiencing any other fertile signs at the moment (CM or fertile vaginal sensations), I’m not concerned at all with that.
I do have a bit of exciting news to share if you haven’t noticed already. We recently released an update to the OvaGraph app! The most noticeable thing you’ll see first is the awesome (at least in my opinion) new icon! For more details about the update, check out my post here: https://www.ovagraph.com/discussion/app-update-1
Good news, my vaginal readings have been elevated since that low that I saw back on CD 12. If you take a peek at my chart, you can see that low on CD 12 and the rise on CD 13, which is what we’re looking for around that time of ovulation.
I’ve been hearing a question about those vaginal reading trends during the luteal phase, so I though this was a great example to show you. After that egg is released, we’re looking to see those vaginal readings rise and remain elevated.
While there was another drop and rise in my readings on CD 16/17, they were still elevated compared to that low all the way back on CD 12, which is all I’m comparing to!
Hope that helps when you’re looking at the trends of your readings!
Guess who saw a vaginal rise yesterday?!? I did! Plus, my vaginal reading is elevated today too. Of course I’m going to keep watching my vaginal readings to make sure they’re staying elevated compared to the low I saw on Wednesday, but I’m still excited.
I hope you’re able to stay cool over the weekend!
Oh goodness it’s Friday afternoon and I haven’t updated you yet! If you take a peek at my chart, you’ll see that I had a ‘cue peak’ trend with my oral reading today! That means that my body is likely gearing up to attempt ovulation in the next week or so. With only one vaginal reading today, I don’t have much refinement of my predicted fertile window yet. That’s ok – as I move along this weekend and into next week, I’ll see what they look like and know when I should consider myself fertile!
Hope you have an awesome weekend ahead!
Yesterday was just a whirlwind here at the office. I didn’t even realize I hadn’t posted until I was lying in bed last night! So, here I am today, new cycle and all! I just have a couple oral readings so far, so not too much to report in with.
I expect I’ll have more to share by the end of the week though, so stay tuned as I keep a lookout for a possible ‘cue peak’ in my oral readings!
I’m back! We left Wednesday evening to eastern Washington for our annual camping trip. Usually we head there in August, but we had a lot going on this month, so we left a bit earlier. As I was packing, I was staring at my OvaCue – should I bring it or not? Thankfully I am confident that I already ovulated, so I kept my OvaCue at home while we were gone.
I have been on other trips where I’m in or around my fertile window though, and that’s a different story. I almost always take it with me during those times so I can keep an eye on what my readings are (unless I forget it…) and I can know what my body is up to.
Wishing you a wonderful Monday!
It’s Hump Day!
I have no idea where this week or this month has gone.

I’m currently about half way through my luteal phase (LP) based on when I believe ovulation took place. Typically your LP length will be pretty close to the same from one cycle to the next (give or take a day or so). If I had ovulated earlier, it’s likely I would see a shorter cycle length, whereas if I had ovulated later, my cycle would likely be a bit longer. Just another reason why tracking can be so beneficial!
