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 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:

I’ll let you know how many pecks of apples we get this weekend!

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.

Cycle Day 1 - September 30, 2014

Good Morning!

Yes, it is technically still ‘morning’ where I’m sitting, so we’ll hope I get this post up before noon rolls around. I want to apologize for my lack of posts near the end of last week as well as yesterday. Busy, busy, as I’m sure you all are!

Today marks the start of a new cycle, so I’m afraid I do not have any readings to share with you just yet. I’ll keep you posted as I move forward!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Hello OvaCue friends!

I hope that your week has been progressing quite nicely for you so far. So far we’ve had a lot of rain here, but other than that, a great week!

My vaginal readings are looking good still – remaining elevated throughout my luteal phase, which is just what I want to see!

Cycle Day 22 - September 23, 2014

Good Afternoon!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Last week was a bit different around the house as Justin was in Chicago for work. He got back over the weekend, and was happily greeted by out dog Franklin, with a complete full-body tail wag. I haven’t been to Chicago, so it was exciting to do a bit of research prior to him leaving about places to see and check out.

While I have seen my vaginal readings rise up and drop down throughout my luteal phase so far, they continue to remain above the low that I saw on CD 12, which is great. It is quite common to see some ups and downs, but as always, it helpful for us to focus on the overall trends of the readings that we see!

Cycle Day 18 - September 19, 2014

Friday Funday… I think so!

Anyone who knows me understands how much I love to sleep in. I’ll admit, I sometimes wish that I could still sleep in until 10 in the morning like I used to back in high school or college, but I’ve come to accept that those days are gone. Nevertheless, I still look forward to the weekends when I can stay in bed until 8am or so – just the thought can make me smile. So, I hope that you all have something to look forward to this weekend, just as much as I am looking forward to sleeping in!

CD 18 - Oral n/a; Vaginal 185 (White - Not Fertile)

My vaginal readings are continuing to remain above that low that I saw back on CD 12, which is great. I am confident that by body ovulated between CD 12/13 with that ‘cue peak’ trend and the vaginal low and rise. Since I always love having as much information as possible, I will continue to take my readings, just to ensure that they are remaining elevated though!

Happy weekend!

Cycle Day 16 - September 17, 2014

Hooray for Hump Day!

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! My vaginal readings have been on the rise – staggering upwards – but nevertheless, on the rise. This cycle is a great example though, as to what we are looking for in regards to your readings after ovulation has taken place. As we can see in my data, there have been some ups and downs since the rise from CD 12 to CD 13. You may not see a steady increase in your vaginal readings for the entire luteal phase. Rather, we are looking at the bigger picture of your readings – watching to see if they are elevated compared to the low just prior to ovulation.
