OvaCue Fertility Charting with Sarah

By Sarah Dohmanpicture of sarah

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.

Happy Friday!!!

Well, the weather here has taken a complete 180º turn - it’s sunny and warm again, which I am thrilled about. Why am I extra happy for sunshine? We’re having our wedding reception this weekend for all of our friends and family that were unable to make it to Hawaii for the ceremony. We’re planning a luau themed reception on an outside terrace at a local hotel here in town, complete with piña colada cupcakes. It should be quite fun!

Speaking of fun, my vaginal readings are remaining elevated as we look back on the reading I saw just prior to ovulation on CD 13. There was a slight drop and rise yesterday and today, but I’m not too concerned since that drop was still above that low on CD 13 that I am comparing my data to.

Cycle Day 16 - July 23, 2014

Good afternoon!

It’s a wet Wednesday here in Bellingham. It has been quite some time since we have seen rain, and boy oh boy, the clouds have been making up for that all morning! Since it’s still so warm outside, we have a possible thunderstorm in the forecast – which I would be perfectly ok with. All of my extended family lives in Kansas, and I remember seeing lighting storms when we would be visiting back there. They were massive. I remember the lighting spreading all across the sky. Now, our storms here aren’t nearly as large or frequent by any means, but I still enjoy hearing and seeing them.

Now, to a not so stormy topic, my OvaCue readings! I feel like my vaginal readings have just been chugging along this cycle – slow and steady on the rise after ovulation. It just goes to show how the trends in your data may not be the exact same from one cycle to the next. They’re still elevated compared to the low that I saw on CD 13 though, which is what I’m keeping my eye on!

Cycle Day 14 - July 21, 2014

Ovulation Day!

It’s as though my body wanted to wait for ovulation until the workweek began so I could share it with you all! Both my OvaCue and I have been closely watching my vaginal readings over the past week or so as I was moving into my fertile window. As you are moving closer and closer to the time of ovulation, we are looking to see those vaginal readings decreasing. Looking at my data this cycle, my vaginal readings had been declining since I began taking them early this cycle. Then once ovulation occurs, and your body switches from estrogen dominance to progesterone dominance, we'll see a vaginal rise followed by continued elevated vaginal readings. I saw that rise today which populated the pink box for me. I will continue to monitor my readings though as I want to make sure that my vaginal readings remain elevated compared to the low I saw on CD 13 for the rest of my cycle!

Cycle Day 11 - July 18, 2014

Happy Friday!!!

We have an exciting weekend ahead of us – Justin and I are dog sitting!!! My mom has one of Franklin’s brothers, and she is going out of town for the weekend, so we get to have him up for the next few days. It should be a fun time!

Slowly but surely, my vaginal readings have begun to decline. This is the trend that we are looking to see as a woman’s body is moving closer and closer towards ovulation. Since I am seeing that trend, I am going to consider myself fertile until I see that rise in my vaginal readings followed by continued elevated readings. Based on the predicted fertile window that my OvaCue provided, it is possible that ovulation may take place over the weekend!

Cycle Day 9 - July 16, 2014

Good Morning!

Happy Wednesday to you! We’re still seeing clear blue skies with temperatures in the 80s here in Bellingham, and I’m loving it!

As you can see I have continued to take my vaginal readings as I am entering my fertile window. I believe I’m still a few days away from ovulation based on the trends that I can see from my previous cycle. Even with that cycle knowledge, I will still keep a close eye on my vaginal readings. As they continue to decline, I’ll make sure that I am considering myself fertile. When I see a rise in my vaginal readings that can indicate that my body has ovulated. Even after I see that rise, I will continue to monitor my readings, so I can be confident that ovulation took place successfully. Now, on to my readings!

Cycle Day 7 - July 14, 2014

Hello all!

Happy Monday to you! We have been having such wonderful weather the past week or so. It was in the 90s over the weekend, which is not too common for us here in Washington state. I enjoy the warm weather, so I spent nearly all of the weekend working outside on our lawn and garden, with a little pool time to cool off.

My oral ‘cue peak’ trend was detected over the weekend, which populated my predicted fertile window for this cycle.

Cycle Day 4 - July 11, 2014

Good Morning!

Wow, I cannot believe it’s Friday! I’ve had a common question this week, so I thought it would be good to share with you all. The OvaCue does have a storage limit on the amount of data that it can hold. We recommend that you are deleting past cycle information each time you begin a new cycle in your unit, which is why we offer a free online charting website and forum, OvaGraph.com where you can input and chart your OvaCue readings as well as any other tools that you might be using to determine ovulation. Hope that helps if you were curious about that topic!

I’m currently on CD 4, so I’m going to be on the lookout for my oral ‘cue peak’ trend in my data (1 higher oral reading followed by 2 lower oral readings). As soon as I see that trend, it is possible that my body may attempt ovulation about 5-7 days later!

CD 2 - Oral 263 (White - Not Fertile)

Hello!

I hope that all of you had a great weekend – for those of you in the states, I hope that your July 4th was spectacular!

I’m on to a new cycle today, so I’ll begin taking my oral readings tomorrow morning with my OvaCue. I can’t wait to keep you posted with how this cycle goes!

Cycle Day 24 - July 3, 2014

Good afternoon!

I hope you all are getting ready for a fun 4th of July tomorrow! I cannot wait for the celebration to begin. I have always loved watching fireworks, so this holiday was always a fun one growing up. Justin, Franklin and I are heading down to Justin’s aunt’s house as she throws a big party each year. She is such a great party planner, so it’s always fun to see what she does each year.

Like I mentioned earlier this week, my vaginal readings have continued to remain elevated compared to the low that I saw on CD 12, the vaginal reading just prior to when I believe ovulation took place. I would expect that I’ll begin a new cycle sometime next week.

Cycle Day 22 - July 1, 2014

Happy July!

I’m sure the suspense was nearly unbearable… Girl’s Night Out was an absolute HIT! As you can see, we decided to go with the neon spandex look and crimped hair.

 

I know that image was a lot to take in, so I’ll focus on my OvaCue readings :)

My vaginal readings have continued to stay elevated compared to the low that I saw on CD 12. We can see that I have had some ups and downs in my vaginal readings since ovulation took place. That is absolutely fine. We are only looking to see if the vaginal readings are above that low that we see just before ovulation. So far, things are looking good!
