How myLotus is helping women to succeed on their fertility journey
We love to share in the real lives of all our women, whether it’s giving supportive advice, answering questions, or receiving your updates. Our women have been on interesting conception journeys of their own, and they’d love to share their story with you too.
After coming off contraception mid last year I was told might never conceive naturally, due to a diagnosis of PCOs 5 years ago. I decided to start monitoring my ovulation cycle. I saw Dr Larisa Corda on Instagram recommending myLotus. I was lucky enough to be sent one of the monitors to trial. It honestly changed my life in a matter of months.
Using mylotus was so easy it became part of my daily routine, and it clearly worked well as after 3/4 months we found out we were expecting. I was shocked and over the moon, even shocked the doctor. I can’t recommend the product enough, not only did it make me become more aware of how my body works, but also had a positive impact on my mental health and relationship with my partner.
I can’t thank the team at myLotus enough, their monthly check ins and constant advice was so informative and helpful whilst being in such a caring manner. Having a baby is not easy and especially for people with fertility issues, but mylotus was the best thing to help me on my way
I was sent myLotus by a fertility company to trial when we were trying for our second child, and after sadly going through a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I have always had fairly regular periods, but was concerned that after the pregnancy I might not be able to tell when my body started ovulating again.
Using myLotus allowed me to pinpoint my lh surge and gave me the confidence that my body and hormones had returned to pre-pregnancy levels. I have endometriosis and low egg reserve, so we never expected conception to be easy – it wasn’t straightforward the first time around. I had previously used ovulation sticks, and found them useful, but really appreciated the additional information from the myLotus – I liked seeing the numbers. In recent months, myLotus was showing me a longer surge and far higher miu/ml than before. I wasn’t sure what this might mean, and talked it through with one of the fertility specialists at myLotus. She reassured me that I was still seeing results within the normal range, and my partner and I treated the entire surge as a fertile period. I’m delighted to say that after 6 months of tracking using myLotus (far sooner than expected!) I’m now pregnant again, and we’re hopeful for the future.
I’d recommend myLotus to anyone who feels they would benefit from seeing the duration and strength of their lh surge, particularly women who may not have a regular cycle, for whatever reason. The ability to monitor hormone levels, and the support from the fertility specialists was a huge help to us while trying to conceive.
Over the last few months I have been using the My Lotus fertility monitor to help me get a better understanding of my most fertile day’s.
I love how the My Lotus fertility monitor not only tells me if I have a positive/ negative LH test but it also tells me the exact level of my luteonizing hormone that gives me an understanding to see if ovulation is near.
My cycles are very irregular and I can go months without ovulating so the My Lotus device has truly shown me how up and down my LH levels are through out the last few months.
Since using the My Lotus monitor I have took all my data to my doctor and have had bloods and scans done that have now confirmed that I have PCOS.
I can’t thank the My Lotus team enough for creating such an amazing device that has helped me get a better understanding of my fertility that will hopefully get me a step closer to that positive pregnancy test in the near future
Myself and my partner are in our late 30s and decided we wanted to start trying for children. We tried the normal vitamin supplements and over the counter ovulation tests but after 18 months had not conceived. As reasonably healthy people we knew age was a factor, so decided to try the lotus fertility monitor as a more specific aid for ovulation. It’s an easy monitor to set up and use and importantly is very specific to you, your cycle and hormone levels and the support from customer care (in what can be an anxious time) is excellent, I could not rate it more highly. We liked that the monitor shows the exact level of LH in urine so you can tell exactly (I mean exactly) when your peak is. This is why it is miles above any other fertility aids. After just two months of using the monitor we had the lovely news that we are now expecting a baby. Good health management and the correct vitamins is very important, but I feel we can put our success down to lotus and their support. Please get a hold of one, and don’t lose hope. Ever! With love to all the couples trying.
myLotus couldn’t have been a better purchase if it tried. From the moment I came across it on instagram it just made so much sense to buy. Having been told it could possibly be a harder route for me to fall pregnant, I wanted something I could trust to help me and something which made total sense. MyLotus easily explains all the different features of how to use it, and the fact that it produces an individualised LH level for each ovulation test is quite frankly genius. This allowed me to track my ovulation in such a concise way that I felt in safe hands. The app is an added bonus which uses your data to inform you when you should be taking a pregnancy test and stores all your test results if you ever need to look back over or show your doctor. We fell pregnant within our first cycle of using MyLotus and I feel passionately that this was purely down to it. My average LH levels were quite low so only MyLotus would have been able to catch my spike using the numerical factor. The added bonus of MyLotus was the 9 pregnancy tests the pack comes with, which I happily used every single one to quadruple check I really was pregnant.
We used the monitor for 2 cycles and conceived on our 2nd cycle. Your monitor is amazing and really shows the surge whether it´s long or short, it´s especially suitable for people who don´t have normal cycle like myself but even if my cycle was normal I would now use it and will be telling all my friends and family about your monitor.
I’m 32, have been trying to conceive for about 1.5 years now. I’ve been using My Lotus for 2 months and found it really good. I have been using Clearblue ovulation kits but they were so expensive and I found that I’d use their digital monitor and it would give me a positive but then id also use their disposable ones and it wouldn’t so it was very confusing. After using myLotus it’s become clear that Clearblue were way off. I’ve discovered I seem to ovulate later than ‘the average’ and so it was no wonder we weren’t having any luck if Clearblue were telling us the wrong time of the month! I honestly think using My Lotus has taken some stress away from the ovulation testing. It becomes routine and because you’re watching numbers rather than just waiting for the positive, it somehow helps! Hopefully we will have some positive news soon!
The myLotus app is very useful with the tester, which is very easy to use. Just switch it on everyday and it will tell you which test to do, or input days of menstruation. The testing pack itself is very nicely conceived with a pipette and container actually supporting the testing.” I have used My Lotus to track my LH surges to see when is the optimum fertility time, which is really helpful when I am trying for a baby. With the app, I can keep track of the LH surge and also learn more about my cycle.
I just want to express a really huge thank you for all the support you gave and investigations you performed to help me to figure out what was going on. It has really been invaluable to me, not only for having a better idea of what was going on with my cycle but also my mental health as it’s given me a little bit more control so I don’t feel totally helpless/useless in this whole situation.
I received the my lotus fertility tracker in January, it was easy to charge and set up really clear instructions on how to use and the monitor itself is small and sleek so quite pretty in your bedroom. Also as a note I’ve only ever had to charge it once the battery life is really good. So I set up and checked my lh levels daily, I was quite shocked to learn that I havnt actually been ovulating. For a back story we have been ttc for just over 2 years and the doctors were reluctant to assist as I’d had a child when I was a lot younger. After 3-4 months with no ovulation I was able to bring this information to them and I’m now being referred which is fantastic news and I would of never known if it wasn’t for this monitor. Compared to other opks this is ridiculously accurate it gives you your exact lh reading and also with the app you are able to keep check or there is the option to do this manually on a chart. The company service is reassuring, caring and prompt they contact you regularly and every member is so friendly and helpful. For what is a stressful and confusing time for most couples this device gives you much more clarity and ability to view and keep track of your cycle the app has access to many support systems too. I can’t recommend this product enough, with me it’s saved me so much time as I now know I don’t ovulate it has been invaluable. Overall I find my lotus fertility tracker and the team behind it invaluable, trustworthy, helpful, accurate, simple, easy and the best product out there for helping you ttc.
This technology has brilliant potential. If in the future your offering was extended to other hormones such as oestradiol or progesterone. I could see it being HUGE as it would reduce a lot of the inconvenience and cost of having to get these tests done separately.Overall, I’m very happy with the purchase. It’s really incredibly useful to have a monitor that actually tracks and tells you what your LH levels are. I found that super helpful. It helped me to successfully identify my LH surge, almost down to the hour! (I used several sticks on the day of predicted ovulation to track the LH levels…it perfectly complemented the other methods that I was using to track ovulation (including cheap OPK strips, Clear Blue Fertility Monitor and Clear Blue Advanced Digital) and really took the guesswork out of it
I just want to say that the device is an absolute god-send as it’s shown how off we were with predicting ovulation previously!
MyLotus has been helpful to detect the LH surge, I’ve only used it for one full cycle (on the second cycle now). I find it much better than the standard OPKs due to the detail provided and the app alongside it is helpful to log the results.
I was very excited upon the arrival of myLotus monitor. It arrived with perfect timing for my cycle dates which was great. I didn’t have to wait to start using it! Firstly the packaging is fab, the box lined in pink is a nice touch! I set up the machine quite easily following the instruction manual. I made a mistake with the date, which was easily rectified. So I began testing and recording the info into the myLotus app. It was very easy to use, I got the hang of it and felt confident I was doing the right thing after just a couple of uses. I love the flexibility of the monitor to be able not to test if you know you don’t need to on a particular day. The app is easy to use and shows you your LH levels on a graph which is a great visual aid. It really points out the peak fertile time. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of each day on the app you can record the days you are intimate with a heart. I used the detailed recordings at a fertility consultation to demonstrate my rise and fall of LH, cycle length, length of period etc. The battery life of the machine is fantastic. I have only charged it twice, once when it first arrived and once more! I can see this monitor would be amazing for people with irregular cycles, it’s so flexible and you can test every day if necessary so you don’t miss your peak surge. I’m really happy with myLotus fertility monitor, here’s hoping I get a positive pregnancy test soon!
