How Ovulation Tracking App Helped Me (and other 22,000 women) to Get Pregnant?

I was struggling to get pregnant for two years. My husband and I were not diagnosed with any infertility issues but still we were unable to conceive. I researched and found Ela app, which helped me in tracking my ovulation, and helped me to get pregnant. Chat sessions with Fertility experts and dietitians, active community and accuracy of Ela app make it one of the best fertility trackers.

It is really hard to explain how it feels to be a mother. The feeling is indescribable when you get a positive pregnancy result.

I had been trying for the past two years for a baby. I was not well accustomed to the terminologies as I used to think that one only needs to have intercourse and can conceive naturally. I tried with this method for a year. When I did not get any result, I visited my Gynecologist who took all of my details about LMP (never knew it was about Last Menstrual Period) and last ovulation day. At first, I couldn’t collect what ovulation is but my gynae explained me about the phase briefly. I was still curious to know what can be the possible reason why I was not able to make it. She also helped me in understanding about infertility as well as male’s sperm contribution in the process. I was explained about what sperm motility and sperm count is and how various parameters associated with these can affect my chances of getting pregnant.

My research Journey to explore fertility and pregnancy

I also started making online research to find out about the possible reasons that would have been the cause of me not getting pregnant even after having unprotected sex that too many times. To my amazement, I came across a number of terminologies that I have never paid attention to before.

I felt like we (my husband and I) had been walking on the wrong road from the last one year. I started reading those terms one by one as I enhanced my knowledge about various aspects of TTC (trying to conceive) and realized before and during ovulation is the time frame that has maximum chances of conception. But again like a relatively new soldier on the front, it was hard for me to track it. I started making notes of my menstrual cycle on calendar, created charts for nearly 4 months but again no luck.

I again looked for online help and came across various apps that are specifically designed to track ovulation and the time window that is termed as “fertility window/ best days”, now this is exactly what I needed for tracking my fertile phase. I installed around three different applications and after using them for a continuous period of 6 months, found ElaWoman app to be more accurate in updating my ovulation days.

Predicting ovulation with the help of an Ovulation Tracker

Now, I didn’t have to rely on my self-created charts and calendars for knowing about my fertile period anymore. I tracked my ovulation for 3 months and found my menstrual cycles to be regular. So, predicting ovulation was not that hard at all.

My husband and I had gone through several tests to check whether there is some problem with our reproductive organs or internal health and to God’s grace, we were not diagnosed with any problem. So, we again started trying for a baby.

Ovulation tracker has been useful for me. I got to know how to check my fertile phase through various modes such as checking cervical mucus, by using ovulation predictor kits and cross checking it with ElaWoman app. I never knew that there are very low chances of pregnancy post menstrual period and used to think that it is the best time for conceiving.

My experience with Ela Ovulation Calculator

Once I started using ElaWoman app, I started trying in second month itself, as I never wanted to let go my fertile period without trying. This time I was more confident and hopeful and our efforts yielded. Finally after three months, I got to see positive lines on my home pregnancy test kit after missing my periods by a week. However, I waited for another week and went to my gynae for further testing and confirmation of the pregnancy. I took another hCG test and got the same result. The feeling of conceiving after 2 years has been incredible.

Ela app helped me in several ways starting right from tracking the ovulation calculator to knowing the best days. It helped in tracking my ovulation and fertile phase so accurately. It updated me with the best days for planning the pregnancy with the most accurate fertility updates unlike other applications.

It also helps those women who are not planning to conceive with the help of an ovulation tracker and would rather escape a pregnancy. In this way, they can easily avoid pregnancy by using the fertility prediction after knowing the days to avoid sex. After my successful pregnancy, I switched to pregnancy mode to help me in tracking my pregnancy until the time of my child’s delivery.

The app has various other useful features for women who dream to become mother. Here, women can 

  • Ask questions,
  • Post their concerns or 
  • Take second suggestions from other Ela app users via community.

It is a wide platform that is open to anyone around the world. Here, women from different nationalities share and discusses their experiences about trying to get pregnant. They also ask their doubts and people having similar experiences come up with their opinions and suggestions. I too got my several queries cleared by asking my concerns on community. There were lots of discussions with soon to be mummy.

Got an opportunity to connect with the highly experienced Fertility Specialists

The app also has a feature that lets you get personal consultation with a fertility specialist. It connected me with fertility specialists after I booked a chat. The time slots are easily available and I never had to face any kind of inconvenience in making a booking. I got the best opinions from Aisha and Jia who helped me at every step making the pregnancy smooth and enjoyable.

Apart from specialists, Nutritionist Myra helped me with diet plan for healthy pregnancy and normal delivery. Apart from this, I could also chat with my individual friends in a personal messenger. The diet plan that I got was delicious and customized as per my own personal health requirements and I feel it has a strong role to play in my success.

One more highly interesting and amazing aspect of this app is its customer care service. Although, there weren’t many issues yet even if I faced any problem in using my app, I always got a prompt reply for every concern I raised. They listened to my concerns and gave me timely solutions that never led to any kind of stress no matter what my issue was.

Connecting with the Ela team I was able to understand the couple’s reproductive health. I also used the app as a period tracker by using Cycle calendar facility. All I was required to mark and edit my periods as well as update my health log daily for knowing my fertility window and my ovulating days. They also provide an opportunity to invite our partners in improving the reproductive health keeping us two tuned together and that’s why I never felt alone during our journey to parenthood.

The app helped me in staying updated with the latest fertility trends and boosters. It is a must have app for the woman who is planning to conceive as it helped me.
