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 4 - April 18, 2014

Happy Friday!

I cannot believe this week is almost over. I feel as though it just flew by. My fiancé is an accountant so this week was especially wonderful for him – the end of tax season! I am very excited that he’ll be back to working ‘regular’ hours now.

Not too much to say about my chart so far. I only have two oral readings, so at this point, I just need to continue taking them so I can have my oral ‘cue peak’ trend detected.

CD 3 - Oral 189 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 4 - Oral 164 (White - Not Fertile)

Hope you all have a fun-filled weekend!

Cycle Day 9 - April 17th, 2014

Hello!

 

My oral 'cue peak' was confirmed on CD 8 like I hoped it would be! :) Once it was detected, my monitor was able to populate out a fertile window of light blue to dark blue days. Based on when my oral 'cue peak' was detected and my average cycle length, it's predicting ovulation for CD 14. Now that my oral readings have done their job, I'll be paying close attention to my vaginal readings. As ovulation is approaching, I expect to see declining vaginal readings. And then once ovulation occurs, I'll see a vaginal rise followed by continued elevated vaginal readings. I always chuckle to myself as I write out all this data interpretation information - because I feel like I'm a broken record sometimes! I sure hope that you don't get bored by my explanations - and that it's helpful for all the newbies that swing by the blog! 

 

CD 3 = Oral 125 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 4 = Oral 107 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 5 = Oral 119 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 6 = Oral 154 - Vaginal 214 (White - Not Fertile) 

CD 7 = Oral 122 - Vaginal 247 (Light Blue - Possible)

CD 8 = Oral 105 - Vaginal 260 (Light Blue - Possible) **Cue Peak Detected**

CD 9 = Oral 138 - Vaginal 251 (Light Blue - Possible)

 

PREDICTION

CD 10 = MEDIUM BLUE (HIGH)

CD 11 = MEDIUM BLUE (HIGH)

CD 12 = MEDIUM BLUE (HIGH)

CD 13 = DARK BLUE (PEAK)

CD 14 = PREDICTED DAY OF OVULATION

 

Have a great rest of the day!

Cycle Day 2 - April 16, 2014

Good afternoon,

Just as I was expecting, I started a new cycle yesterday. I didn’t get a great night of sleep due to cramps, so I’m planning to begin using my oral sensor tomorrow morning.

I’ll keep you posted as I move forward in this cycle!

Hoping you all are having a great Wednesday so far!

Cycle Day 7 - April 15th, 2014

Hello!

 

I've got so much to update you on. As I mentioned last week, I was out of the office on Friday, spending the day with my little sister. We ended up hiking over 11 miles round trip - so needless to say, I was a bit sore all weekend :)

 

I am still waiting to confirm my oral 'cue peak' trend. If I have one more lower oral reading tomorrow, then my 'cue peak' trend will be confirmed and my fertile window will populate out into the future! As you can see, today is marked as a light blue day - but I don't have any future fertility predictions. Based on my average cycle length, my monitor is expecting my 'cue peak' trend to occur at any moment - and once it is, then the full fertile window will populate into the future! 

 

Average Cycle Length = 27 days

 

CD 3 = Oral 125 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 4 = Oral 107 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 5 = Oral 119 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 6 = Oral 154 - Vaginal 214 (White - Not Fertile) 

CD 7 = Oral 122 - Vaginal 247 (Light Blue - Possible)

 

Check back to find out if my 'cue peak' trend is finally detected on CD 8!

Cycle Day 28 - April 14, 2014

Hello!

The girl’s weekend was a success! We lucked out while we were down there with the weather too, nothing but sunshine! We went to dinner at a restaurant called Wild Ginger. It was delicious.

I must admit, I did not take my OvaCue with my over the weekend, so I am missing my readings on Saturday and Sunday. I am expecting my next cycle to begin any day now, so I’m not too concerned about missing those two readings this late in my cycle – especially since I am confident about when ovulation took place this cycle.

Cycle Day 25 - April 11, 2014

Happy Friday!

I am very excited for the weekend to arrive. I’m going on a girl’s trip down to Seattle and I cannot wait! We always have a great time when we get together.

There isn’t anything too exciting to report with my OvaCue readings since I’m well into my luteal phase. My vaginal readings have been elevated which is what I am always keeping an eye on after I believe ovulation has taken place.

Cycle Day 1 - April 9th, 2014

Howdy!

 

Today marks Cycle Day 1! Oh, how I dread cycle day 1. I never feel good, I hate dealing with Aunt Flo - and I guess, overall I just feel out of sorts. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to change that, is there? 

 

My last cycle ended up being 28 days long with ovulation occurring on CD 13, which made my luteal phase a nice, long 15 days! My luteal phase definitely has a tendency to run on the short side, so I'm always so happy to see the rare cycles when it's long! 

 

This week has been full of meetings and conference calls - and I just feel like I can't catch up! And to top it off, I'm taking Friday off to spend the day with my sister before she leaves on a 5-month stint in Idaho for the AmeriCorp! It's supposed to be a sunny day so we're going on a nice long hike to try to get her prepared for all her hiking/camping that she'll be doing while she's gone! 

 

Looking forward to updating you next week with some actually OvaCue data :)

Cycle Day 21 - April 7, 2014

Good Afternoon!

I hope you all had a great weekend! My fiancé and I went to a wine tasting event. I will be the first to admit that I do not know much about picking out wine. If I am by myself, I’ll generally decide on a bottle that has a label that catches my eye – I know, not always the best method. Going to tastings is so exciting for me since I get to learn about different types of wines and what makes them unique.

On to my readings! So far my vaginal readings have been elevated since my low on CD 13 which is exactly what I was hoping to see.  

CD 3 - Oral 284 (White - Not Fertile)

CD 4 - Oral 314 (White - Not Fertile)

Cycle Day 24 - April 4th, 2014

Happy Friday!

 

The weekend is almost here :) My parents leave tomorrow morning to head back to Eastern Washington so we're all going out to dinner tonight. There is a great local steakhouse in town, so we decided to splurge and go there. I have researched and tried to re-create a steakhouse baked potato. What in the world do they do to make them so perfect? Oh well, it's probably good that I can't make them quite like that! :)

 

I've been working for Fairhaven Health almost 5 years now and have been highly involved in the TTC community. . .so, it always surprises me when I run across some TTC lingo that I'm not familiar with. How many acronyms can there be? When I run across one that I don't know, I spend way too much time trying to figure out what it might be instead of just googling it! Does anyone else do that too? While, this list could be expanded - it does cover a large majority of the commonly used acronyms! I hope this helps as you navigate your way through the forums!
