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.



Cycle Day 3 - October 31, 2014

Happy Halloween!

Yes, everyone in the office is dressed up today. I am a medieval princess today, while we also have a pirate, a peacock, a 70s dancer, and more. I love seeing everyone in costumes. Plus, here in Fairhaven, where our office is located, many of the businesses hand out candy later on in the day. There are about 1500 kiddos each year, and it’s so fun to see all the different costumes.

I began taking my oral readings this morning, which I will continue to do until I detect my oral ‘cue peak’ trend. I’ll keep a close eye on them over the weekend and into early next week, that way I can get a better idea as to when my body may attempt ovulation this cycle!

Hope you all have a spooky (and fun) day!

Cycle Day 2 - October 31, 2014

Good Afternoon!

Justin and I went to a Murder Mystery Dinner last night, something neither of us had done before. The exciting part – it was a 1920s theme event, meaning I was able to wear a bright red flapper dress and feather boa – not my typical daily attire. We managed to find Justin a nice black and white pinstripe suit, so together, we won the ‘Best Dressed Couple’ award for the night.

I also started a new cycle since I last posted! I’ll be starting with my oral readings tomorrow morning, so let the charting begin!

Cycle Day 28 - October 27, 2014

Hello!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We went to a Halloween party on Saturday, at a spooky old manor here in town. It was a great setting for the party.

I’m still just putting along here in my luteal phase, about to start a new cycle any day now actually. Not too much exciting news to share with the readings that I’m seeing.

Cycle Day 23 - October 22, 2014

Good afternoon!

I tend to talk a lot about how we want to focus on the readings that the oral and vaginal readings show us throughout the course of your cycle, simply because I think it can be so helpful when we’re trying to pinpoint ovulation as best as we can. Watching those readings can provide us quite a bit of insight regarding the hormonal shifts that take place in our body, so by continuing to take our readings each day, we have information to look at and interpret if we have a longer or shorter cycle that usual, or if things simply don’t seem ‘usual’ to us. This information can give us feedback as to why we may have had those changes, as well as trends to look forward to as we move forward into our next cycle.

Cycle Day 21 - October 20, 2014

Happy Monday!

Remember how I mentioned that we have a fantasy football league here at work? Well, great news this week – it looks like my record will be 3-4 after this week. I know, nothing that I want to brag about, but considering I didn’t see a win until the 3rd week, I’m pretty excited. That and the fact that I will have 3 times as many points as my opponent this week… but who’s really keeping track.

I’m continuing on my merry way through my luteal phase. I’ve had quite a few ups and downs in my vaginal readings, which is always something I like to keep an eye on. Even with a pretty regular cycle, it’s possible to have an ‘off’ cycle or one that is a bit longer or shorter than what may be typical for you. By continuing to take your readings and watch those readings, we keep learning about our body and what is going on!

Cycle Day 16 - October 15, 2014

Good mid-week afternoon!

Hope you all are well! My vaginal readings have had a high priority on my attention list since the beginning of the week. I saw a vaginal rise from CD 13 to CD 14, indicating a possible ovulation trend in my data. To confirm if I did ovulate, I want to see if my vaginal readings remain elevated compared to the low, just prior to when I believe ovulation may have taken place, CD 13 this cycle.

So far, my vaginal readings have remained elevated to that low that I saw which is great. I will continue to watch my readings still, as I want to see that they continue to remain elevated!

Cycle Day 14 - October 13, 2014

Hello!

Apple and pumpkin picking over the weekend was a success! We lucked out and it was a clear sunny day for picking our apples and pumpkins with Franklin sniffing out his choice for which pumpkin we selected for him. Now I’m just on the hunt for a great applesauce recipe…

I have other news to share as well – my vaginal readings rose today, populating the pink box on my OvaCue monitor, indicating that a possible ovulation trend was detected in my readings. The rise is indicating that my body has switched from estrogen to progesterone dominance in the 24-hour window between my vaginal reading yesterday (with the vaginal low) to today (with the vaginal rise). Due to that, I am still considering myself fertile today, the day of the rise, and if I were currently trying to conceive, I would be planning intercourse today as well to help increase my chances of conceiving!

CD 14 - Oral n/a; Vaginal 286 (Pink - Ovulation Confirmed)

It’s still important that I watch the readings from my vaginal sensor over the next few days, as I want to see those readings remain elevated compared to the low that I saw yesterday, on CD 13!

Cycle Day 11 - October 10, 2014

Good Afternoon!

Are you ready for the weekend? I am! Justin, Franklin and I are headed out to a local farm to go get some pumpkins, as well as to pick some apples! It’s always so fun – they have a little tractor that you get to ride out to the apple fields. You get to pick your apples and then get back on the tractor to go find the perfect pumpkin. When I last checked, I believe Honeycrisp and Jonagold apples are in season – 2 of my favorites!

More exciting news? Of course! My vaginal readings have continued to decline almost this whole week. As I watch that trend in my data, I am continuing to consider myself fertile each day, as that trend of decreasing vaginal readings is exactly what we look for as a woman is getting closer and closer towards the time of ovulation! Take a look:

Hiya!

I’m headed into my fertile window now! I expect that I’ll be seeing my vaginal readings continue to decline over the next few days as a move closer and closer towards ovulation since I did see my ‘cue peak’ trend late last week.

Cycle Day 7 - October 6, 2014

Hello!

Happy Monday to you! I feel as though I have been so behind, but, that also means I have so much to share! My oral ‘cue peak’ trend was detected over the weekend, which means I have my predicted fertile window for this cycle. Just as I mentioned last week, this window can be quite helpful, but we still want to keep an eye on our readings, as this is my predicted fertile timeframe. In a perfect world, ovulation would be spot on with that prediction – unfortunately, this might not be a perfect world, regarding ovulation of course, so we still want to watch our vaginal readings as we move into that fertile time.

CD 4 - Oral 186 (White - Not Fertile)

Predicted Ovulation:

CD 9 - Medium blue - High

CD 10 - Medium blue - High

CD 11 - Medium Blue - High

CD 12 - Dark Blue - Highest

CD 13 - Medium Blue - High – Predicted day of ovulation

I’ll keep you all posted with my readings!
