Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My husband (31) and I (25) have been a couple for 12 years and are married for just over 1 year. We enjoy going to the cinema and game nights.
What was it like for you when you decided you wanted to have a baby?
We always wanted children and, having moved into a suitable apartment after getting married, we knew the time was right for us.
Why did you choose the femSense Ovulation Test?
For the first two “practice cycles“ we used a urine ovulation test, but since I work shifts, it was difficult for me to stick to the necessary time schedule. Then I looked for alternatives and femSense was the most suitable solution for us.
How long did you use femSense before getting pregnant and how easy did you find it to use?
I got pregnant straight away, in the first cycle with femSense :)(our third in total). The application is really very easy. My husband always came home from work full of excitement and the first thing he did was read my patch. Unfortunately, my mobile phone was no longer compatible because it was too old.
Did you know about your cycle beforehand and how important timing is when trying to get pregnant?
I was surprised that after more than 11 years on the pill, my cycle was regular (with very few variations of 1-3 days) immediately. The timing is important, of course there are always exceptions, but you want to get it right quickly.
How did you feel when you found out you were pregnant?
I was slightly stunned, but also instantly felt happy. I had thought that it would probably take me up to a year to get my hormones back on track because I had been taking the pill for so many years.
From your personal experience, what advice would you give other couples trying to get pregnant?
Get to know your cycle and then make love as often as you want :).
