Fertility Focus, the manufacturers of the OvuCore and OvuSense Pro family of fertility monitoring solutions, today announces the launch of OvuFirst, a unique patented sensor designed to measure skin temperature, providing women with an understanding of when to try and conceive naturally, and enabling them to determine what issues they may have trying to conceive.
OvuFirst is targeted at women who wish to monitor their ovulation and cycles in a convenient, non-invasive way. By wearing the clinically-proven sensor on the arm or wrist overnight, OvuFirst confirms a woman’s fertile window with over 90% accuracy even if she has irregular cycles – making it the most accurate skin-worn sensor on the market. The OvuSense App then uses this information to provide women with a full 8-day fertile window at the start of their next cycle.
“We took our revolutionary OvuSense patented technology proven in over 190,000 cycles of use, and used it to develop and test the most accurate skin-worn fertility monitoring sensor available on the market,” said Fertility Focus CEO Robert Milnes. “We are proud to offer a convenient and easy-to-use solution to assist and support women during the early stages of their fertility journey, whether that is trying to start a family, or simply learning more about their bodies and cycles.”
In a side-by-side study volunteers wore the OvuCore vaginal sensor and OvuFirst skin sensor overnight for several cycles. The study concluded that the skin-worn sensor provides a convenient method of determining the presence or absence of ovulation, even in women who have a known history of ovulatory dysfunction, anovulation (the absence of ovulation), and/or ‘abnormal’ long cycles. The study is expected to be published later in the year.
