Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hello, my name is Emma and I am 35 years old. I love long walks with our family dog. We have been together for 6 years, married for 2 years.
What was it like for you when you decided you wanted to have a baby?
I brought a daughter into the relationship and we knew early that we wanted a baby together. Our daughter was also desperate to be a big sister.
Why did you choose femSense Ovulation Detection?
I first came across femSense on Facebook, I read up on it and decided to give it a go. We had tried ivf for one year, but I had had enough so we needed to find an alternative. Because of the hormone treatment my ovulation and menstrual cycle were all mixed up. femSense made it so easy for me. It was easy to understand and unlike other methods didn’t involve taking and charting my temperature myself. It was simple – stick on a patch, hold your mobile phone up to it in the morning, and that’s it!
How long did you use femSense before getting pregnant and how easy did you find it to use?
I only used 2 plasters and have a full packet of 3 left over.
Did you know about your cycle beforehand and how important timing is when trying to get pregnant?
Because of the hormone injections from ivf I didn’t know my cycle at all any more. But, as you can see, it all worked out with femSense.
How did you feel when you found out you were pregnant?
Happy but also anxious because of the miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.
From your personal experience, what advice would you give other couples trying to get pregnant?
Never stop hoping, one day you too will hold your happiness in your arms.
