All About Irregular Cycles

Long, short, and inconsistent cycles are common causes of infertility. 

Irregular cycles are characterized by missed, delayed, or erratic periods, or abnormal bleeding patterns.

30% of women have irregular cycles (either short, long, or inconsistent).

Irregular cycles can vary from month to month. Some cycles may be long while others may be very short. Women whose cycles fluctuate greatly from month to month are more likely to experience obstacles in their fertility than women whose cycles are typically long or short. Irregular cycles could be a sign of thyroid gland irregularities, elevated hormone levels such as prolactin, androgens, PCOS, or diminished ovarian reserve.

Short cycles can be a sign of hormonal imbalances, reduced fertility, approach of menopause, or ovaries with fewer eggs. Longer cycles can indicate hormonal imbalances, lack of ovulation, other fertility issues, or increased risk of miscarriage.

There are many ways to boost your fertility if you have an irregular cycle. 

Some methods are tracking and predicting ovulation, taking medication, reducing stress, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Our at-home test allows you to measure your exact hormone levels to learn if and when you ovulate each cycle. 

Why is Oova different?

Our at-home test measures two hormones quantitatively. That means you get your exact hormone measurements every time you use Oova- not just an idea of whether your levels are high or low, or whether or not you might be ovulating. Oova measures luteinizing hormone, which pinpoints ovulation, and progesterone, which confirms that an egg was actually released. Once you scan your Oova strip, you can see all of your data in comprehensible terms in our smartphone app, along with personalized daily action plans to help you reach your goals. ⠀

Oova is the only fertility tool that tracks, predicts, and confirms ovulation with lab-grade accuracy in the comfort of your home.
