Since the launch of kegg in 2020, we’ve received many questions about the key differentiators of kegg and other fertility monitors. Some users in our community are especially curious about the difference between kegg and OvuSense. These two devices in the women’s health space look very similar but have entirely different functions. In this article we address all the common questions and highlight the benefits of each fertility monitor.
Whether or not a woman is trying to conceive, understanding the effects of stress on the menstrual cycle is a key piece of information because we are all experiencing stress at different levels. Stress can interfere with hormonal shifts that accompany women’s cycles, whether the stress comes from work related situations, emotional rollercoasters, traveling, extensive exercising, poor nutrition, or certain medications. In this blog, we present a testimony from a fertility Instructor & kegg user, who experienced alterations in her cycles due to stress.
The trying to conceive journey can be arduous, full of joys and sorrows. We hope to inspire other women by sharing stories of mamas who have conceived using kegg and also experienced challenges along the way. Our hearts are with our users regardless of where they are on their fertility journeys.
For those who are in their reproductive years and interested in learning more about their cycles, there’s plenty of affordable and easy-to-use fertility solutions. The obvious question might be: what makes kegg different? This blog aims to shed light on the overall fertility monitoring devices ecosystem and explain the key differences between products and identify the optimal fertility tracking device for you.
Over the past two decades fertility monitoring devices have come on the market to help couples conceive. Here at kegg we aim to offer helpful perspectives comparing and contrasting kegg with other fertility tracking devices. OvaCue has been used for many years and we often have people asking what the differences are between OvaCue and kegg. Below, a kegg community member was happy to share her first-hand experience comparing kegg and OvaCue.
We often get questions about how kegg compliments fertility awareness methods. The best way to answer is by bringing you stories from real kegg users who are also experts in these widely used methods. The following blog post, written by fertility awareness educator Leslie Rewis, describes how she uses kegg to compliment her use of the Billings Ovulation Method, a form of natural family planning based primarily on observations of sensation at the vulva and the appearance of cervical mucus on underwear or toilet paper.
Cervical mucus (or fluid) tracking is one of the most powerful tools for increasing awareness of your fertility. In fact, it is estimated that abnormalities in cervical fluid may account for 3-8% of subfertility in women[i]. Fortunately, this is information our bodies are already giving us every day! By practicing body awareness and using your kegg, you are empowered to zone in on your fertile window and gain invaluable insight into your hormonal and reproductive health.
The end of the year is approaching and while on one hand 2020 has caused much suffering and many are still struggling, as a company we’re proud of what we have done this year to empower women and help them decode the mystery of the fertility journey.
Over the past few weeks we have been fortunate enough to hear about more kegglets (or babies conceived while using kegg) that are on their way. One of the most frequent requests we hear at kegg is to see kegg charts in which our users conceived. We are so excited for our keggsters and are honored to be a part of their fertility journey! At kegg, we know the ‘trying to conceive journey’ can be very emotional and challenging. It is our mission to be a source of support for all keggsters, regardless of where they are on their fertility journeys.
