I used it. After 16 months of trying, and 4 months with Ava, we did conceive (I’m 7 weeks now).

I will say, the technology is funky -I had to replace my bracelet once because it just stopped recording data. THe battery life is crap and it needs to be charged for like 30 minutes before you wear it most nights (I could usually get 2 nights on one charge, but never any more than that). It got annoying to remember to put it on every night. I don’t know if Darling Husband and I conceived because of it or if we were just finally lucky.

I was willing to pay the $400 for Ava because we had been trying for a year and were headed towards expensive fertility treatments. Ava is refundable (if you buy the more expensive plan) if you don’t get pregnant in a year, so I figured worse case I’d return it and we’d do fertility treatments, but best case, I’d get pregnant and only be out $400.

AstonMartin :  According to their literature, it’s only recommended for women with regular cycles  lasting between 24 and 35 days.

AstonMartin :  I have Ava and mine works great! No battery issues, I can go 3 nights on one charge (I just leave it plugged in all day then wear it overnight… but when travelling or camping and I can’t charge it, it holds the charge well). I just hated oral temping (same time every morning and after 4+ h of uninterrupted sleep was stressing me out!).

I would recommend TempDrop over Ava any day. Temp drop is cheaper, it’s easier to use IMO, and use can use it for charting to avoid later in life if you want to. Plus the support team at tempdrop is amazing. Tempdrop doesn’t need charging, you just replace the batter about once every 8 months or so. Tempdrop doesn’t interpret for you, it just gives you information and you interpret it yourself. It’s more to learn off the bat, but in the end you have a much better understanding of your fertility than if you just rely on a device to tell you.

I have one and love it. I’m not using it to ttc right now but to track my cycle more accurately after I had an unexplained weird cycle a few months back (period was over a week late, negative pregnancy tests then started super light bleeding for two weeks followed by a week of really heavy bleeding). It seems to have gotten more accurate for me over time. It’ll be great for when we do ttc since I’m getting to see how my stats are now.

I have a friend who was TTC for maybe 6ish months and ended up conceiving after she bought the Ava bracelet… not sure if that’s what did it or not, but I know she really liked it. It seemed to chart her cycles pretty accurately.
