Our story begins three years ago when we were so excited to learn that we were expecting. Unfortanatly, that pregnacy ended very early at eight weeks. After two weeks of knowing about the pregnacy, we were divestaed when it had ended before we even got a chance to enjoy it. We seeked answers and guidence from our OB/GYN but found out very quickly that she was not going to put forth the effort and time to try to help us find out what had went wrong. Her answer was that it happens to more couples then what we realize, and there really isn't need for concern unless it would occur again. My husband and I were very shocked and very upset that she seemed to take our concerns and situation lighlty. After our visit, I decided that I was not going to sit back and possibly let it happen again before trying to find out why it happened the first time. I then took some of my families advise and went to a OB/GYN that they had went to and trusted. To my suprise, my first visit consisted of blood test to check for hormonal abnormalities, as well as other things, and a quick second appointment for an ultrasound. By my next appoinment date I was shocked to find out that she had potentaily found the problem. She told my husband and I that I had polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS. I was very glad that she had taken the time and effort to diagnois my condition, but as she explained what happens when having PCOS and what I could expect, I became worried that I would never be able to have a child of my own. She reassured me that whith treatment, we stood a good chance of concieving. That day I started Metiformin and after several months my body adjusted to the mediation, and I started noticing that my periods were more regular and less painful. After doing some healing both mentaly and physicaly, we decided to start trying again. After a few months with no sucess, our OB/GYN wanted us to track my ovulation using ovulating tests. It wasn't long before I realized that was going to be easier said than done. I could never read the lines correctly. Was the test line darker than the reference line or not? I did this for two monts and became so frustrated that I threw it all away. Looking for an easier way, I decided to go online and look at other options. That is when I stumbled on to the OV Watch and was very skeptical about it's claims. At our next appointment I asked our OB/GYN about the watch and wanted to know if she had known anyone to have sucess using it. She said that she had heard of it but didn't know to much about it. She would have to do some research about it but in the meantime she wanted to us to keep trying to use the ovulation predictors to track my ovulation and again I set up another appointment for a future date. Although she was doing all she could to help us get pregnant, after a month of using the sticks I again gave up on trying to read them. After a few more months of disappointment I decided to take the chance on the OV Watch and order it. By the time I had recieved the watch I had done so much research about it that I was confident that it would work, but my husband was a bit more skeptical. How could a product that increased odds that much not be known by all OB/GYNs? I too was suprised, but what did we have to lose? The cost of the watch was a small price to pay for the joy we would have if it worked. I am beyond happy to say that our first month of using the watch was a sucess. WE ARE PREGNANT!!!! Our first prenatal visit is the first of November where I will be telling everyboby in the OB/GYN office, including the Doctors, about the watch.

Thank you OV Watch! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for three years and after using the OV-Watch 1 month I'm pregnant! That's right! We've spent thousands of dollars on fertility treatments, meds, indicators, etc. We gave up on the treatments and meds in January of this year and read the article about Trista and Ryan and decided to give the watch a try. The watch is awesome. It's so easy to use. It completely took the guesswork out of when I was ovulating. We've recommeded the watch to everyone we know that is trying to conceive. I'm 17 weeks pregnant and can't wait to see our little bundle of joy.

I had been trying to conceive for months, and I was very frustrated! My mom (my biggest fan) read and researched many things to help me. She bought me my OV Watch, and told me that it was her contribution to my efforts. I used it for the first time this past month, and IT WORKED! I am so excited about the OV Watch that I have been telling everyone I know and meet. Thank you for such a wonderful product--it helped me make my dream come true!!!
This is very exciting. I am 32 years old and have been trying to conceive for 9 months. My husband and I really thought we would be successful right away. After months of disappointment, I decided to purchase an ovulation LH urine kit from the pharmacy.I tried the LH kits for a few months and never saw an actual confirmation of ovulation. I became concerned that maybe I didn.t ovulate at all. I had a visit with my doctor to discuss what was happening. He ran some tests on me and sent my husband to get tested as well. Turned out, we were both working properly. It was just a matter of timing.. And then there was the Watch.. My brother and his wife were also trying to conceive. They had done some research about the OV-Watch and told me to check it out. I was hesitant at first, but when I woke up one morning with my period again, I decided to order it that day. I received it two days later and I wore it for the first time that cycle. I was let down when I got my period that month and I reached out to a support person, Allison, at OV-Watch for guidance. She was very comforting and advised me to give the watch a chance to adjust to my body. That.s what I did. I brushed myself off and put it on again. I listened to Allison and waited until the watch read fertile to begin having intercourse. I only had intercourse during the days the watch suggested... It really works..... I AM PREGNANT!!!!! Thanks OV Watch.. Liz
Like many other women, I thought that we were supposed to only target the day of ovulation when trying to conceive. After months of not getting pregnant with using LH sticks, I got very frustrated. I thought that I was doing everything right. I thought that I was targeting the right "time" to conceive. After my friend, who had been trying for 18 months to get pregnant, got pregnant with OV-Watch on her FIRST month of using it, I decided to give OV-Watch a try. She and I have always wanted to be pregnant together. After one month of using OV-Watch - I was pregnant! We both ended up having little girls that are 1 month apart! I hate that I wasted so much time using other things to monitor my fertility. OV-Watch made all the difference! My family is complete now and without OV-Watch that wouldn't be possible. If you are trying to get pregnant and you are having trouble, don't waste any more precious time. Try OV-Watch and see.....you'll get pregnant sooner! It is an amazing tool!

My husband, Marcus and myself are so pleased and excited that we are expecting our second baby in March 2003 due to the OV-Watch. Marcus and I were proud parents back in March 1999, when we gave birth to our first daughter, Lauren. Lauren was conceived after an extended period of trying to conceive. Lauren is very excited about the impending arrival of her little sister or little brother. Lauren will be 4 years old when the baby is born.
Marcus and I lead a very active life. Marcus is a marathon runner and is frequently out training for hours each evening. He is 35 years old and works full time at a very challenging and stressful occupation. I am 36 years old and also work full-time. We are a very active family always enjoying the outdoors and participating in our daughter's life -- taking her swimming, to gymnastics, bike riding, walks and our cottage.
Back in November 2001, Marcus and I decided to try and conceive a second child. Everyone mentioned to us that it would take only a month or two since we had previously had a child. When six months passed by and my doctor was becoming more concerned about my age and an irregular and long menstrual cycle (39 days) and the possible factor that Marcus being an avid marathon runner was interfering with his sperm count, he mentioned that our chances seemed slim without the use of fertility drugs. We decided at the time not to turn to the fertility drugs and allow nature to take its course.
A friend mentioned the new OV-Watch from HealthWatch Systems to me and I was more than pleased to give it a go. The watch allowed me to continue a normal life without the use of medications or other methods. I programmed the watch to coincide with my menstrual cycle and began wearing it as soon as my monthly cycle began. I wore the watch at night, every night, for at least 6 hours. The instruction manual was very easy to read and the watch monitored my hormone balance every _ hour taking readings and registering the readings within the watch. It was very simple and easy to wear. The watch kept track of the day of my cycle and then when the watch registered that I was in the fertile period of my cycle it read "fertile". At this time, Marcus and I knew that it was the correct time to begin trying to conceive. There was no need to use basal body temperature methods or LH test fertility sticks.
Within the first month of using OV-Watch,I became pregnant. I am now in the first trimester (as of July 2002) of my pregnancy and am very very excited. The fact that I could easily slip the watch on every night without being concerned about trying to take basal body temperatures each morning or using the very expensive LH test strips made my life and my families so much better and less stressful. I was able to concentrate on other aspects of my life and not worry about the fertile point in my cycle. The watch was able to determine all this for me.
I would recommend this OV-Watch to anyone who is trying to conceive.
We have been trying to get pregnant for some time now, about 1 1/2 years now. I have used charting my daily temperatures to using LH detecting kits. My cycles are irregular so I was having great difficulty pinpointing my ovulation. I have had so many let downs from crying in the shower, to feeling depressed, when a friend of mine emailed me with an advertisement for the OV Watch. I am so excited, I just tested last night and we are finally pregnant, I was so happy I cried. I only used it for one month. It is the absolute best thing I have tried ever. Thank you so much.

Twins were quite a surprise for us! There aren't twins in either of our families and my wife wasn't on any fertility drugs. It is just one of those things! We had been only trying for a few months. We didn't like the normal ways of counting days and taking temperatures every month. We saw a story about the OV-Watch on our local Chicago News (I think it was NBC) and it seemed like a great way to take the guessing out of the process. It gave us much more accuracy when finding the fertile days. We had only been on our second sensor when my wife got pregnant with the twins. She is due in April. We haven't found out the sexes yet but we do have a growing list of names (boys and girls). It will be very exciting!
