Lady-comp & Taking Charge of Your Fertility

In preparation for marriage, I stumbled upon two neat and complementary methods that assist in natural birth control: Lady-Comp & Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Initially, I was overthrown with skepticism because it seemed too good to be true;  and like most if us, I was only aware of the mainstream and "normal" b.c options (The Pill, IUD, Depo Provera, The Patch, Sponge, Spermicides, Diaphragm, Implanon, Nuvaring, and so on). And with those options, I just couldn't fathom the thought of allowing a synthetic chemical or invasive device interrupting my bodies natural process. In addition to hearing and reading horror stories: increased risk of blood clots, strokes, breast cancer, irregular spotting, severe pelvic inflammatory disease or uterine perforation, heavy and crampy periods, UTI infections, cervical inflammation, and  allergic reactions to spermicides and latex. And to think, women are only fertile a few days a month - I oped out. I was determined to find a natural alternative, swiftly! Once again, the world wide web saved the day and bestowed a priceless gift to my womanhood! From there on, I have been eager to share these alternative ways of b.c since the day I discovered them!

 Lady Comp - The Lady of the Hour!

These two products are highly effective and scientifically proven. Combined, they compliment one another and can help a woman gain control and a true understanding of her gynecological and sexual health. And I must brag, Lady-Comp has a 99.3% accuracy rate! It is a non-invasive, chemical/hormone free b.c method that does not give side effects or disrupt the body, but rather complement the woman's natural fertility process. It is very easy to use; based on your morning temperature, taken orally, the fertility computer determines your fertile days and shows when you are ovulating by recording, analyzing and storing your menstrual cycle data. It monitors your daily status of fertility and will alert you on the days when intercourse may lead to pregnancy (flashing a yellow or red light): on the day you ovulate – and the five days before ovulation.

 

Lady Comp alerts the user with a light system: 

  • Red Light - Indicates fertility. A barrier method is strongly encouraged or abstinence. 
  • Yellow Light - Indicates possible fertility. The devices is trying to configure the users fertility status. Choose to abstain from sex or use a barrier method. 
  • Green Light - TURN DOWN FOR WHAT! a.k.a Lady Comp gives full permission to have intercourse without a barrier.
 

I also can't help but mention that Lady Comp is so darn cute with its Tiffany & Co. colors! It's about the size of a small walkman and has a very simple and straight-forward design, making it easy to navigate. It also does not over complicate the fertility tracking process (which can seem daunting) and has all sorts of features to assist in fertility comprehension. It offers a fertility calendar, menses tracker, basal-body thermometer, BMI calculator, hormone map and more! L.C is battery powered (AAA) and sends alerts when the battery needs to be changed. It will save data if powered off by bad batteries.

taking charge of your fertility Quotes:

  • "About 1/2 of all American Women who experience unplanned pregnancies are, in fact, using contraception at the time they conceive. Many of those failures could have been avoided if couples understood the woman's menstrual cycle better."
  • "If a man ejaculates inside a woman, the length of time the sperm can survive is directly related to where the woman is in her cycle. If a woman is nowhere near ovulation, and is therefore infertile, the sperm won't survive more than a couple of hours or so. However, if she is approaching ovulation, and had wet-quality cervical fluid, sperm can live up to five days."
  • "Wouldn't it make more sense for birth control to be developed for the gender that is most fertile?"
  • "But a woman is actually fertile only a few days per cycle, around ovulation (when the egg is released)."
