70% of all our pregnancies occur within the first 6 months
We understand that every couple’s chances of conceiving naturally are different, although they all have one thing in common, timing.
Our clinical studies have shown that 70% of all pregnancies occur within the first 6 months of using DuoFertility for couples who have been trying to conceive for at least 12 months*
An independent, clinical study, found that there was no difference in the day of ovulation detected by DuoFertility compared to ultrasound. This study was conducted in women who had been trying to conceive for at least 12 months (1). The sensitivity of ovulation detection is 100%.
*Internal study on the first 1000 DuoFertility pregnancies
Additional DuoFertility research explored the pregnancy and live birth rates in a group of 1,550 couples who were not able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected intercourse.
Results demonstrated that women with low ovarian reserve (meaning that they are less likely to respond well to fertility treatment) were found to have an equally good chance of conception on the DuoFertility program (2).
This was compared to a similar group of women with normal ovarian reserve.
In couples who have been trying to conceive for two years, the chance of pregnancy occurring spontaneously in the third year in the general population is 13% (3, 4). For couples in this category who use DuoFertility, this has been shown to triple their chance of success (5)
In a clinical study, 7 months of DuoFertility demonstrated similar effectiveness to one cycle of IVF for women who had been classed as infertile (6).
