Episode details

Ep. 7 of the Optimizing Fertility podcast

Ovulation tests aims to tell us when we are most likely to conceive and to help us get pregnant faster. But with many different options on the market, and some criticism from OGYNS and fertility doctors around at-home testing, how can we navigate what works and what doesn’t?

In this episode we hear from OOVA founder and biologist Dr. Amy Divaraniya, whose startup has reinvented ovulation monitoring with the launch of its non-invasive, lab-quality "fertility translator" kit.

Amy talks to ELANZA Wellness’s Catherine Hendy about how her own struggle to get pregnant left her frustrated with the one size fits all approach of traditional tracking, what we can learn by monitoring our hormone changes and patterns, and how she set about reinventing a test without the drawbacks of existing ovulation tests.
