I have a duofertility monitor too, and as I have been diagnosed with very low ovarian reserve for my age, i have also bought the clearblue monitor.... however last cycle ( whyich was my first one) ... I didn't get a peak result from the clearblue...so it would suggest that I have not ovulated.
but my duofertility predicted my fertile days and confirmed ovulation. I think that this was right, but I am a bit confused.
Have you used both together? which one is most accurate?
I am writting about my experiences here if that helps anyone:http://duofertilityandclearblue.wordpress.com/
did you guys get pregnant using it? I can see that you posted this a few months ago.
That is fab,
I was told that I couldn't do IVf as I wouldn't respond well to the treatment.
I am just 30, but my AMH is super low... I took my test to see how long I could wait before we have to start trying to get pregnant. And I am glad I did. I have therefore put some of my plans on hold to try now as I really want a family. I have just been trying for a month... so I will give it a few more before I try to find an other IVF clinic that will accept me.
I hope that I will not need it.
To be honest the duofertility team had advised me that my chances were very low given my amh, and that I should be looking at all my options without delay. I am a bit of a control freak, so I have got 2 monitors duo and clear blue...and I am going to try for a few month before I move on.
However I get there I hope that I will get pregnant before the end of the year.
I hope that you have a really good pregnancy.
My consultant put me on DHEA which at first I'm sure he said was to help improve the quality of the eggs, he last said it was to improve the DNA. He said that with some (lucky) women they fall pregnant during the 3 months of taking it before starting IVF. I wasn't ready to start IVF after 3 months so I was taking it for about 8 before treatment. He really thinks it helped though. I only had 3 eggs collected but they all fertilized so maybe it did.
I hope the monitors will help you but if you're AMH is super low then I wouldn't delay pushing for further treatment. I only wish I'd found out my levels earlier. They didn't test me for that until I'd been TTC 3 years, when I'd been with the consultant for well over a year. It annoyed me it isn't one of the first things they test for seeing as they do a blood test at the beginning anyway.
Thank you. I hope you also get lucky soon! x
I had heard about ovarian reserve and I paid for this test myself through my GP.
I am so glad that I tested, I completely agree that gps should do this immediately when we start trying.
I will not wait for too long but I want to see if I can get pregnant myself...maybe 3 or 4 months. I will definitely not want to wait for 3 years. Thank you for your advice. I will keep you posted.
I wasn't offered DHEA as my doctor was rubbish and I sometimes wonder if that would have made a difference. Anyhow, we have a lovely little 8 month old boy, so I'm not complaining. I hope things work out for you both.
I am very happy for you about your little boy. Maybe he would have arrived sooner, but at least you conceived.
you can try it for your next pregnancy
Don't be fooled. We have completed 12 month last month and difficulties we faced are:
1) Monitor only records temperature, nothing else, £3 thermometer does the same.
2) It does not predict Ovulation in advance. It only shows shaded area as likely ovulation which is often wrong if you have irregular period. Almost 10 out of 12 prediction we had was wrong. They notify actual ovulation few days later by email and blame technical issue.
3)There is no expert advice what so ever, In last 12 months not single advice was given apart from ovulation notification after 3/4 days. We can't really turn the clock back and have intercourse.
4) Sticky tabs are irritating, it leaves a pink/dark mark under your arm.
5) We followed all their guidelines for money back guarantee, but they are now refusing to give it back.
6) They have no intention to refund money.
8) They are misguiding vulnerable couples and cheating with their hard earned cash.
Stay away if you can. It i waste of time and money.
