70% of women who struggle to conceive have an ovulatory issue which is almost always present at the start of their attempts to conceive. This is set against a background of a rapidly ageing demographic that are trying to conceive, with the inherent risk of decreasing fertility with age. Health systems can no longer afford to wait to discover ovulatory issues by "expectant management" - allowing couples to try for a year or more before starting diagnosis and appropriate treatment. OvuSense Pro offers a solution to this problem by enabling remote diagnosis and monitoring of ovulatory issues in the home, under the supervision of clinicians, in an affordable solution which can be used from the very start of trying to conceive. OvuSense uses a vaginal sensor to record core body temperature every 5 minutes overnight. Data are downloaded to the dedicated OvuSense App and alerts transmitted via the OvuSense Pro portal to clinicians. OvuSense has 6 peer reviewed clinical publications, based on 3 clinical studies, and 13 patents protecting the unique mode of recording, and the mathematical techniques for predicting and confirming ovulation, diagnosing ovulatory issues, and monitoring treatment. Reducing the time to diagnosis, or confirming that no ovulatory issue exists, is essential to improving the chances of conception in the population, with inherent health economic, wellbeing and societal benefits.
