I decided a few years ago to to go off of birth control pills after being on them for 20+ years. I didn’t have any side effect or anything go wrong prior to my decision, but finally did a lot of research myself and educated myself on my own reproductive health. I am glad that I did and wish I would have done this much sooner. I then decided to go a more natural and safer approach as I felt that was a better option for me.
I highly recommend the Lay Comp. It is an intelligent thermometer basically. This is how it works. Each day you wake up to the preset alarm to take your daily waking temperature. The Lady Comp then starts to learn your bodies reproductive routine and cycle based off of your temperature readings. Once it learns, it will then accurately record your cycle, predict menstruation and ovulation. It will also predict accurately your fertility daily. This is what makes this a great tool for achieving or preventing pregnancy. It lets you know once your temperature is recorded each day what the status of your fertility is. For example, it will show a green, yellow or red indicator light. Green meaning safe or not fertile, yellow meaning the Lady Comp is learning and if you are trying to prevent pregnancy you should use protection when having intercourse. Finally, a red indicator light means that you are fertile and to use protection if having intercourse. The Lady Comp also provides a blinking red light to indicate ovulation. These lights can be used adversely if you are wishing to achieve pregnancy.
What I love most is that it is really that simple. The Lady Comp takes a lot of charting/ and guesswork out of your reproductive cycle. It keeps track and is a great tool for monitoring things like cycle lengths, ovulation days etc. It also is very helpful that it predicts when you are about to menstruate. This is extremely helpful for me.
The Lady Comp is costly up front. But for me, I knew that it would pay for itself after less than 1.5 years compared to my monthly birth control pill expense. It is also reasonable when you are comparing other methods of birth control such as implants or a hysterectomy. You can go a cheaper route by purchasing a fertility thermometer and do your own charting via the FAM method. I originally had done this when “weaning” myself off of birth control pills (3 months) in addition to a few months while using the Lady Comp initially to compare. What I found was that he Lady Comps readings are spot on with my manual charting.
I made my decision to purchase the Lady Comp to give myself a piece of mind knowing that I am using a very reliable and accurate birth control device in addition to having a safe and natural drug free birth control method. I have owned and used my Lady Comp now for over 2 years and so thankful to have it.
This is the Lady Comp website. I bought it through Amazon. The customer care team of Lady Comp is amazing they are very knowledgeable and helpful if you have any tech questions for them. When I purchased my Lady Comp, I had some difficulty with the thermometer sensor. I emailed and then was able to talk to a representative over the phone right away. When they couldn’t troubleshoot the issue over the phone, they sent out a new replacement Lady Comp and followed up to make sure that my new Lady Comp was working properly. I am confident that if I have any future questions or concerns that they will be as helpful. It really says something to me when a company has such great customer service as well as being very knowledgeable of their products and standing behind their product.
As a disclaimer, I have not received any discount or free product from Lady Comp. This review is based on my personal experience and appreciation of the product alone. I hope that my review will help other women in their choice to have a safe and reliable natural birth control and/or family planning option.
I am a huge fan of this book!! 😊They might have an Ebook version as well.
This book was very informative and gave me a better understanding of my own reproductive health. It focused on describing how a woman’s body functions during her cycle. It also focuses on the FAM method of charting…it is not the old school charting techniques by the way. In reading this book I learned a lot more about my bodies natural occurrences. It would be extremely helpful to any woman who wishes to gain knowledge and take charge of their own reproductive health. I purchased this book prior to my Lady Comp purchase and I feel that it is necessary to have the book if anyone is researching a family planning or birth control option. This should have been a book handed out in school for sex ed! 🙂 I think it is absolutely important for a woman to know about their own reproductive health so that they can make a sound decision when it comes to family planning, and birth control.
