This is gonna sound totally dorky but.....Charlotte had on on Sex and the City. She and her husband were ttc and it showed her wearing one, and it beeping when she was fertile. She didn't get pregnant, so maybe it doesn't work!
I am getting one of those - a friend of mine from babycenter is doing IVF because of some of her DH's fertility problems, so she's sending me hers for free. I've heard a lot of good things about it, it gives you about a 4 days heads up of when you should be O'ing, and I'm willing to try anything! We've been TTC'ng off and on for a year now, and I'm SO ready to be a mommy!
I am on my third month of using the ov watch. You wear the watch over night and it takes readings like every half hour or fifteen minutes, and it lets you know when you have an lh surge which is the precursor for ovulation. It tells you the four days before ovulation which are the best days to get pregnant. I have been watching my cm, not temping, and it seems to be pretty accurate. I have a pretty typical 28 day cycle. I have heard some negative from other users that had some sensor issues due to a bad batch, and other negatives with it not being accurate but some of their cycles were irregular or extrememly long, which could account for some of the inaccuracies. I don't know, I know it is not a miracle thing because like I said I am on my third month of using it, but I do know a whole lot more about my cycle than I ever did before and it does seem to be lining up with my ovulation.
I wore the watch one month and then the next month I only wore it for like two days then started having problems with kidney stones so I stopped wearing it, and after two or three days it said not reading for the rest of that cycle, and it beeped all the time because thats what it does when its not reading. The next cycle I wore it and everything worked the way it was supposed to
I bought the OV Watch several months ago because, at this point, I'll try anything if it will get me pregnant. I was skeptical that it would work, but figured it couldn't hurt.
The first month I used it was a bust because the sensor was faulty. It quit working mid-cycle, so it was a complete waste. After that, I wore it for two months. The "fertile days" that it predicted lined up with my OPKs, but here's the deal...when you set up the watch, you have to enter your cycle length. So of course, the watch can just figure when you'll probably O just using your cycle length. The next month I was out of sensors and didn't want to buy more, so I just put the watch in the drawer of my night table. Lo and behold, the watch came up with fertile days that month WITHOUT ME EVER WEARING THE WATCH.
I would not recommend this product; spend your money on a relaxing day at the spa instead!!!
