Lisa has really had a grueling infertility story, as she has faced particular challenges with her health. We are therefore even more delighted that she has become pregnant with the support of OvulaRing. And we are even more pleased that she shares her story with us here.
My name is Lisa and I am 31 years old. I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 23. My disease was already very extensive, meaning that other organs were also affected. Numerous operations and an artificial anus were the result. Unfortunately, there were always relapses, since this disease is not yet curable. In 2015, I visited a fertility center with my husband for the first time. There we were assured that we could only get pregnant with artificial insemination.
We didn’t want to lose any time and immediately started countless hormone therapies. It was a very exhausting and stressful time. We started with IVF, switched to ICSI and were finally rewarded with embryos. Unfortunately, I never got pregnant and all the other attempts with cryotransfers did not give us a single positive test.
Exactly. 2018 I had an emergency surgery, in which I then unfortunately also lost my left fallopian tube, according to the surgeon, the right one also looked very bad, but it was not removed. Our hope for our dream child became less and less. After more than 10 abdominal surgeries, we actually resigned ourselves to never becoming parents. Due to the many hormones, my cycle was completely out of its natural rhythm. I simply could not bear the side effects anymore and looked for a natural method.
During my research for a natural method I became aware of OvulaRing. At first I was unsure if it was even possible for me to use it with my chronic pain. I saw on Instagram that a ring was being raffled off and quickly jumped into the lottery pot. And as if fate had willed it, I actually won it! I was thrilled and used it immediately. Before, I always used these ovulation tests that never showed me ovulation. I always thought there was something wrong with me. Questions upon questions: Why do I never ovulate? Am I perhaps already in menopause?
With the ring, I could immediately see that my body was doing everything right! This gave me back a lot of confidence in my body. After my 3rd cycle with OvulaRing, my period stopped. In itself with me nothing conspicuous, however, I suddenly had strong nausea and at some point I did a test this showed me immediately POSITIVE! I am actually pregnant and we still can not believe our luck.
I am so grateful and I can absolutely recommend OvulaRing. A real HEART RECOMMENDATION! Not only in the fertility period, but also for natural and hormone-free contraception and to get to know his cycle. The application is super easy and arising questions are answered competently and quickly. The whole OvulaRing team is very friendly and helpful. Thank you for everything!
