Ever wonder what taking our Male Fertility Test is like from both a technical and emotional perspective? Team Ovry dishes on our experiences navigating the MFT–from “having the talk” with our partners, to conducting the test, to finding out the results. Here’s what we have to share:Team Ovry | Tue, Jun 14, 22
In part two with Savannah Walsh, we explore postpartum care from the mom of 5 (soon to be 6!). Savannah didn’t set out to have so many children, but now can’t imagine her life without her small army of kids.
Savannah Walsh is a young mom in her seventh pregnancy, expecting her sixth baby. She didn’t always know she wanted to have so many kids, but an endometriosis diagnosis in 2016 changed the way she looked at fertility and having babies. She and her partner joke “we didn’t go looking for a life with a bunch of kids, it found us!”.
We are beyond grateful that our community trusts us to share their personal stories. Collectively, we learn through shared experiences and it is an honour to provide a platform for your experiences to be affirmed and amplified. Thank you to this month’s community member for their honesty around being on the fence about wanting kids.
With PCOS affecting 1 in 10 women, the chronic illness impacts the lives of thousands of Canadians every day. Each persons symptoms differ, and many go years without a diagnosis. We reached out to our community to pass the mic, and to share real people's stories living with PCOS. Laura graciously shared her journey with us, shedding light on getting her diagnosis and how she manages her symptoms.
Nat Segal is a professional skier, producer and writer from Melbourne, Australia now based in Revelstoke, BC. She generously shared with Ovry her journey through sport while menstruating and how her perspective of her period has shifted over the years.
Haley is a 30-year-old kayaker from Calgary, Alberta, who is headed to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics as one of the first-ever women who will compete in Olympic canoe slalom. She spoke candidly to Ovry about her experiences with her period, how her cycle affects her training, and what it’s like to be a woman in the sport (and in general!).
