The OvaCue Fertility Monitor consists of a hand-held monitor, an oral sensor, and a vaginal sensor that predicts ovulation easily and accurately without messy urine testing. Over 98% accurate, includes FREE Priority Shipping!
OvaCue Predicts PLUS Confirms Ovulation!
The OvaCue Fertility Monitor consists of a hand-held monitor with a color screen, a saliva sensor, and a cervical mucus sensor – the ideal combination for pinpointing your most fertile days in your cycle and for confirming when ovulation occurred. Take the guesswork out of your fertility by seamlessly reading and tracking your body’s biology clues with the OvaCue Fertility Monitor and companion website, OvaGraph. Women who know when they are fertile have a higher chance of getting pregnant during that cycle. Don’t let another month pass you by!
How It Works
The OvaCue is a monitor that measures changes in the electrolyte levels in your saliva and cervical mucus that are impacted by the hormone estrogen. Simply place the oral sensor on your tongue daily and the OvaCue will record a reading of the electrolyte resistance in your saliva. The monitor will track trends in these readings, looking to identify a specific trend (called the “Cue Peak) that marks the beginning of your fertile window. Once this trend is detected, the monitor will color-in the calendar with varying shades of blue (from light to dark), indicating low to peak fertility, and providing 5-7 days advance notice of ovulation. With several days advance notice of ovulation, you are able to increase your chances of conception. The OvaCue keeps track of your current cycle day and current fertility status — and it stores up to 4 months of readings.
Once you begin use of the vaginal sensor, the monitor is able to track trends in the vaginal readings to determine when your body switches from estrogen dominance to progesterone dominance, the clue it uses to confirm that ovulation occurred.* As you move through your fertile window, signified by the blue days on the calendar, the monitor will be tracking the vaginal readings closely so that it can detect the trend it is looking for to confirm ovulation. Once this trend is detected, the monitor will display a pink box, indicating “ovulation confirmed”. In some cases, depending on the specific hormonal fluctuations of the user, the monitor will also display a purple box two or more days following the pink box, which also indicates “ovulation confirmed.” Please note that when both a pink and purple box are displayed on the calendar during a cycle, interpretation of actual reading data may be required to determine whether ovulation occurred with the pink box or with the purple box.
*Note: Vaginal ultrasound is the only method available that confirms ovulation with 100% accuracy. With the OvaCue, we can detect specific trends which indicate ovulation. Even with the display of the pink or purple box, we do recommend you continue to interpret your data to confirm that ovulation occurred successfully.
Works for Irregular Cycles and PCOS and Here’s Why
The OvaCue is used successfully by women with irregular cycles and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). While other fertility monitors predict ovulation based on the attainment of a pre-determined level of a given hormone (either luteinizing hormone, estrogen, or a combination of the two), the OvaCue has no predetermined level set — rather, it interprets each reading in your cycle in relation to your previous readings. OvaCue doesn’t look for a specific reading based on statistical averages, it looks for an overall trend in your body’s own unique readings. This method of ovulation determination is particularly suitable for women with irregular cycles since a hormonal imbalance may prevent you from reaching a predetermined hormone level prior to ovulation.
For women with highly irregular cycles, it may also be necessary to interpret actual reading data (in addition to looking at the color coding on the screen of the monitor), to accurately determine your fertility status. Irregular cycles are commonly caused by hormonal imbalances. For women with a hormonal imbalance, ovulation may occur before or after the predicted time frame that the saliva sensor provides. If you happen to ovulate earlier then the oral sensor predicted — the cervical mucus sensor will be able to notify you if ovulation is actually occurring sooner. This is also the case if ovulation is occurring later than the oral reading had originally predicted.

Does the monitor let you know when you are pregnant?
There are no known trends that the monitor provides that will notify you of pregnancy. If intercourse is planned during the fertile window, we would encourage that you do follow up with a pregnancy test.
Does the $399 includes both OvaCue Monitor and sensors?
This product include the OvaCue unit, oral sensor, and vaginal sensor
Do we have to use both the oral and vaginal monitor? Or can we use one independently if we are already using NFP as well?
The OvaCue does require that you use both the oral and vaginal sensor.
Is it possible to purchase a new vaginal sensor? I bought the OvaCue several years ago to conceive my son, we are TTC again and we have lost the vaginal sensor.
Yes, you can purchase a replacement vaginal sensor here.
Is the monitor, saliva sensor and vaginal sensor included in the price $399?
This includes the OvaCue Monitor, Oral Sensor, and Vaginal Sensor. We used to sell the monitor without the vaginal sensor and it could be purchased separately. However, we now only sell it in a complete bundle.
How accurate are the readings of the device?
The OvaCue Fertility Monitor is 98% accurate, if used correctly. For specific questions about use – please contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you recommend I use the OvaCue if I get my periods every other month?
The OvaCue can be used with irregular cycles. With that said, it would be necessary that you use the oral and vaginal sensor in combination with one another. We also would urge you to chart your data at OvaGraph.com so you can get assistance from OvaCue Specialists if need be.
Is there any pain or discomfort when using the vaginal sensor?
There should be no pain or discomfort when using the vaginal sensor. Many women find it to be easier than using a tampon.
Can you use the vaginal sensor while standing or does it always have to be used while laying down?
You can use the vaginal sensor standing or laying down. The most important aspect is that the sensor is in contact with enough cervical mucus.
Does it matter what time in the morning you take your OvaCue Readings? For a Basal Temperature reading it has to be taken at the same time first thing each morning. For Example: for work I wake up at 5 am each morning but on the weekends I am not up until 8.
The most important thing is that you take the oral reading first thing upon waking from your night’s sleep. It is not as time dependent – however, we do recommend you try to take the oral reading within a 2-3 hour window.
If you do not have your mestruation, how can I start using the Ovacue? You say you must start the second day of your mestruation.
Unfortunately, in order to begin use of the OvaCue, you do need to start taking readings at the beginning of your cycle (menstruation). You will need to wait until you start your next period. If you have any further questions, please contact our OvaCue customer service at email@example.com.
What about women with PCOS, does this monitor work? I get positive OPK’s all the time because the hormone imbalance.
We do highly recommend the OvaCue Fertility Monitor (and vaginal sensor) for women with PCOS. It will likely require a bit of extra interpretation help from the OvaCue Specialists here at Fairhaven Health.
Here’s a link to help explain how the OvaCue can help for irregular cycles.
Can you start using OvaCue on any day of your cycle?
You need to begin using the OvaCue at the start of cycle. We recommend you start taking your oral readings on cycle day 2, however you can begin as late as CD 4.
Does the software work on an Apple computer?
The software has been discontinued and is no longer included in the OvaCue Bundle. Instead, we’ve developed a free online charting website, www.OvaGraph.com, where you can chart all of your OvaCue data. It’s a great place to chart your OvaCue readings and any other charting methods you may use, and has a great community of ladies to help answer any and all of your TTC questions.

At Fairhaven Health, we receive numerous inquiries about using the OvaCue Fertility Monitor for natural family planning.
