“I Wish I Had Discovered Mira Right at The Beginning So That I Did Not Have to Go Through Tons of Fertility Products”
36-year-old Loren is seven months pregnant as of July 2021. Her trying to conceive journey, like many, is filled with many ups and downs. But through it all, her determination and support from her loved ones did not wane. Read on to learn more about Loren’s trying to conceive story and how she got pregnant on her first month of using Mira’s products.
Difficulties and challenges
Loren and her partner were both in their mid to late thirties when they had decided to try for a baby. Although the couple did not face any obvious or jarring problems, they knew deep down that it may a take a little longer than they had hoped for.
In addition to their age being a factor, Loren had mild Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)— a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, male sex hormones that are usually present in women in small amounts. As a result, her menstrual cycles, although regular, tended to be on the lengthier side.
With all these in mind, Loren and her partner anticipated that their trying to conceive journey may be longer and more challenging than they would like it to be.
Negative experience with other fertility products
Because of her experience with mild PCOS, accurately predicting ovulation time was quite tricky for Loren. That’s because for her, ovulation did not fall in line with the standard “day 14” rule that people often read about online. She experienced this first hand when she got her hands on traditional fertility products like the fertility bracelet. After trying it for 10 whole months, Loren felt that it was inaccurate and unhelpful.
She also began to use a fertility monitor to track and monitor her core temperature after three months of trying to conceive. In addition, she used digital ovulation tests every month. All of these methods proved wildly expensive but ineffective, leaving her discouraged and stress out.
Through it all, Loren went regular check in appointments with her gynaecologist with regular scans and blood tests to make sure everything was alright. She even took a considerable amount of pre-pregnancy vitamins. The couple had also started to research In vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics in case they needed further assessment.
Finding support and discovering Mira
When fertility products and fertility doctors were unable to help her achieve her pregnancy goals, Loren found the greatest support in her husband. She also found a lot of information online about how other couples are experiencing their trying to conceive journey.
While she was online, Loren also conducted extensive research. Through her thorough research, Loren came across Mira. However, after her frustration and negative experience with ovulation sticks and other tech gadgets that weren’t working, she remained sceptical despite being ready to give it a try.
Loren’s experience with Mira
Loren loved that Mira’s products work differently from other ovulation tracking apps on the market by adding a concentration value to her individual hormone surge. Mira was able to pinpoint exactly when she was ovulating. She found that whereas fertility strips were hard to read and interpret, Mira provided actual numbers and detailed information that were easy to understand. She loved that Mira’s products told her exactly what was going on and left no room for misinterpretation.
“As someone who likes data and numbers, this felt a much more accurate way to record over temperature which is subject to many factors or OPKs that measure against a standard baseline. In fact, my Mira curve looked wildly different to others which just shows the importance of personalisation in fertility tracking.”
Life after Mira
With Mira, Loren was able to identify and pinpoint when she was ovulating. The useful information helped the couple to get pregnant just one month after. In fact, Loren got pregnant even before she had the chance to use her second box of Mira.
“Well, I got pregnant on my first month using Mira which may be a coincidence but I like to think not! In fact, Mira accurately predicted a hormone surge at a much earlier time than other methods had predicted for ovulation and I only just managed to catch the tail end of peak fertility. I was sure I had missed my window and felt very down in my two week wait, however, I was stunned to find out I was pregnant! I am positive this is down to Mira detecting that hormone surge and adding a clear numerical value to it. I didn’t even get to use my second box of Mira plus wands that are still sitting in my bathroom.”
For those out there who are trying…
Excited to share her review and experience with Mira with other women out there who are trying to conceive, Loren wanted to let others know that it is perfectly fine to make use of technology during your trying to conceive journey.
“Whilst you may think you know your body inside out, don’t be afraid to use a little help from technology to back that up because you may be surprised. Don’t give up and always hold out hope for that little miracle.”
