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 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!

Cycle Day 23 - September 24, 2014

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!

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.

Cycle Day 14 - September 15, 2014

Hello!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fun weekend. My friend from elementary school is getting married in November, so I went to her bridal shower on Saturday! There was a rustic/chic theme to the shower, which is quite fitting as she and her family grew up on a dairy farm. In fact, she was able to convince me to help her milk the cows one summer back in high school – I’m still not sure how she got me to agree to that when I think back on it. It was lovely to see her again as she is getting so close to the big day!

Speaking of big days, I believe ovulation may have taken place over the weekend for me! My vaginal readings had been on the decline for a few days, so I was considering myself fertile during that time. Then, when I took my vaginal reading on CD 13, my readings rose, which can indicate that my hormones shifted from estrogen dominance to progesterone dominance. Today, my vaginal readings did dip down a little. I am keeping an eye out to see if they remain above the low just prior to when I believe ovulation took place (CD 12 this cycle). I am going to consider myself fertile now, just in case they do continue to decline further. Only time will tell!

Cycle Day 10 - September 11, 2014

Good afternoon!

This week I’ve changed up my posting schedule – not intentional of course, but rather because I’ve just been ‘off’ by a day all week. I haven’t had a specific cause that I can think of that would make me feel this way. It’s just one of those weeks I suppose.

My vaginal readings have begun to decline in over the last couple of days, so I am going to consider myself fertile! We always suggest that you consider yourself fertile when you see those declining vaginal readings after a possible oral ‘cue peak’ trend! This way, you can know that you are planning intercourse on the days leading up towards ovulation, helping to improve your chances of conceiving!

CD 9 - Oral n/a; Vaginal 201 (Medium blue - High)

CD 10 - Oral n/a; Vaginal 168 (Medium blue - High)

**Predicted Fertile Window**

CD 11 - Medium Blue – High

CD 12 - Dark Blue - Highest

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

Hope you all are having a fabulous week so far!

Cycle Day 8 - September 9, 2014

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Yesterday seemed to fly by so quickly, that I didn’t even get to share my news with you – my oral ‘cue peak’ trend was detected yesterday! Looking at my readings, we can see that one higher oral reading followed by 2 lower oral readings on CD 5/6/7. This is the trend that we are on the lookout for, as it can indicate that ovulation may take place about 5-7 days later! At this point, I am going to keep a close eye on my vaginal readings. If I see them declining, which is what we expect to see as you are nearing ovulation, I’ll consider myself fertile!

Sorry for the late post, but I will keep you all posted about my cycle as I move into my fertile window!

Hello!

Happy end of the week to you! I hope you all have had a great week so far, and enjoyed the start of football season last night!

I began taking my oral readings this morning, so I am going to be on the lookout for my oral ‘cue peak’ trend – one higher oral reading followed by 2 lower oral readings – over the weekend! I’ll keep you all posted about that!

I wanted to check in with you all after the long Labor Day weekend that we had! I’ve started a new cycle, so I don’t have any fun data to share with you yet. I’ll keep you posted once I begin taking my oral readings, so we can begin interpreting that information!

Take care,
