What do the fertility statuses mean?
Oova lets you know exactly where you are in your cycle, but what do the statuses mean?
Whenever you scan an Oova test, you will receive the concentrations for each hormone being monitored. We also contextualize the hormone levels into a fertility status so you know exactly where you are in your cycle. So what do these fertility statuses mean? We break it down for you below!
- Low: This indicates that your chances of conception on this day are low. Typically you will see your LH and progesterone levels on the lower side these days. You may see this status on your scanning window's tail ends (beginning and end). In the beginning, this is where Oova is learning your baseline levels. In the end, it can signal that your next cycle is about to start.
- High: The luteinizing hormone levels have begun to increase, and you are in the LH surge portion of your cycle. It would be an ideal time to have intercourse on the high days if you are trying to conceive. It is not uncommon for you to see multiple days of high. A woman's peak LH levels can often be misconstrued as High, especially during her first cycle with Oova.
- Peak: This is when the LH levels have reached the maximum value for your cycle. Do not be concerned if you do not see Peak in your first cycle with Oova. The algorithm can take 2-3 cycles to learn that your peak levels are indeed your peak. It would be best if you timed intercourse on this day to optimize the chances of conception.
- Ovulation Confirmation: The algorithm detected an LH surge, and the progesterone levels rose afterward. This pattern indicates that an ovary released an egg, and you had successful ovulation this cycle.
- Post Ovulation: This status appears after the ovulation confirmation status. During this phase, your progesterone levels will remain elevated, and the LH levels may reduce back to baseline.
