Wow, that’s pretty expensive for a product that’s basically taking your temperature!  Neat concept, but pretty pricey!

So it takes your temperature and you input data from your period? Does it determine hormone levels?  I think you could use a free website for this, femilia.com can give you a “expected” ovulation.  You can also see the rise in temperature on the chart in Femilia and that would indicate ovulation.  I guess though if you don’t want to take your temperature and then type/write in the number, and the little device saves your data then that would be nice.  Since it saves the data from your previous cycles, then it might be worth it.  I could see how using it longer would actually get more accurate.

I have a girlfriend who was unable to use artificial methods of birth control for various reasons, and has been using the fem comp successfully for 6 years.  She swears by it and LOVES it!  She had her one son as planned, and is waiting for a couple more years to try for a second one!  Very successful for her!

I am so excited you made your post! Birth control is the last thing I really want to be thinking about but a serious issue my fiance and I need to resolve. I’ve tried charting with the free online calculaters and they don’t work well for me. I am not into the other NFP methods and when I do it myself the numbers are never accurate and I just can’t take the risk. For a while we’ve been trying to figure out what we are going to do — I can’t use the pill or anything with hormones so I am stuck.


I searched for the Lady-Comp and found that it not only helps you to avoid getting pregnant, but will tell you the right time to try too. In that case, the price is totally worth it. I also look at customer reviews on a bunch of different sites and it looks like there are a few different options but I liked this website the best. Plus, they offer free shipping, service, free product samples and all that good stuff. 

There is a lot of information about how Lady-Comp works on this website http://www.naturallyforher.com/products/lady-comp

I just received my Lady-Comp a couple of days ago.  I ordered it from http://www.naturallyforher.com, along with the Taking Charge of your Fertility book.  I did hesitate on the price tag (they have free shipping on this site though), but it appears that with NFP or FAM it is best to take your temperature before doing anything, even talking and I am not very good at that.  When my annoying wake-up alarm goes off I just want to shut it off, which requires me to stand up.  Also, when soon-to-be Mr.MangoBerry calls to wake me up, I talk for a while before I remember I need to take my temp.  I tried a Walgreens basal thermometer for one cycle (it was about $15), but my temperatures were all over the place and flatlined for days in a row.  I don’t know if this had to do with me not taking my temperature at the right moment but I really want to be sure that I am doing this right.  I guess another thing that helps with the price shocker is that the expected lifetime of the device is 10 years. 

First time using the LadyComp was this morning and I did good.  It comes with an alarm so you can’t forget taking your temp right when you wake up because it is the very device that you use to take your temp that wakes you up.  The information that it requires from the user is just two things: first day of menstruation each cycle and temperature reading each day.  I was able to enter my mentruation history for the past six months.  For now, I plan to monitor my cervical fluid too because I really want to learn to know my body and my cycles.  I will continue using http://www.fertilityfriend.com to chart my data and we’ll see how it goes. 

I’ll probably give updates on my progress since its too early now to tell.

@MrsMangoBerry:  I’m thinking about getting a LadyComp as a NFP method. Do you have any updates?
