Best birth control Ive ever used!!! Despite the initial investment, its accuracy is amazing. After only a couple months, it now can tell me exactly when my period is coming, and my cycle is very irregular. I highly recommend this product!!!!

Just what i needed
easy to use and very helpful to have. It is very expensive to first buy however cheap to maintain compared to ClearBlue machines or other fertility monitors.

Love this little gem. It is pretty pricey, but it accurately measures my temp and helps me chart! It also knows exactly when my new cycle is set to begin. You can also set it like a little alarm clock to remind you to use it every morning.

Works well, but I like the older generation much better. Pros I like that this one is more compact, has a nice case, and uses disposable batteries. The older, bigger unit was easier to use and the buttons were bigger. Cons this one is harder to navigate. The button is small and you have to press it just right to get it to do what you want. It's gotten easier with practice though. In my opinion, I gave it 3 stars because of the design of the button only. It is reliable and gets the job done though.

Wish I could give it no stars. Used for a little over a year and it worked well. Monitored temperature regularly. However this past month it gave me a few extra green days. I ended up getting pregnant. Do not trust this method of birth control unless you are ok with the possibility of becoming pregnant.

Overglorified expensive thermometer.
Be very wary before dropping your hard earned cash on one of these machines. I used mine for over a year religiously and wish that I could get my money back. $500 is way too high for what they are trying to charge for this. You are better off using your own thermometer and chart like I did before deciding to use the Lady-Comp.
I am one of those women who have a close-to-textbook cycle. Since before I got pregnant my period has always come at 30 days, and very rarely has it come on a different day. Not only that, but I am very in tune with my body and can tell when I am ovulating and have most of the tell-tale symptoms of it happening (sore boobs, the familiar pinching sensation, and bigger appetite, among others). Anyway, due to having such a regular cycle I thought I'd give the Lady-Comp a shot because I wanted reliable birth control without having to take pills. Birth control pills have always made me moody, mean, or fat and miserable. I thought this would be great but was a little nervous about spending such a huge chunk of change. $500 is a lot to pay for something like this. I decided to do thorough research and check as many reviews as I could through videos, website reviews, and word-of-mouth. No surprise that nobody knew of the Lady-Comp outside of the web. Needless to say the video reviews are also few and far between. I ordered the Lady-Comp through the official website to be on the safe side and the customer service was great. However, the problem began when I set my machine up.
Every single morning I woke at the exact same time, checked my temperature, then went back to sleep. Simple enough, right? I even started on the first day of my period, and put my other temperature charts I had before using this thing in my drawer. I wouldn't need them with this trusty device, right? Green lights came every day until I finished my period, then I began to see red lights. It's ok, no biggie, after all the machine has to learn first, so I was excited for the anticipation of the green lights to come after a few months.
However, after three months of use, the only green lights I got were when I was bleeding. It's ok, I figured. I'll just give it more time. During every month in the meantime I had the usual perfect ovulation temperature spike along with my usual symptoms, then the red light would flash. This thing could tell when I was ovulating just like I could, so at least it had that down pat.
6 months later, still no green lights unless I was bleeding, but who wants to tango when they're bleeding and feel yucky? I decided to give it even longer.
8 months, still nothing but red lights unless I'm on my period. Ok, what is going on with this thing? Is it me?
10 months, same deal. At this point I'm beginning to wonder.
A whole year, and still the same thing. Ok, now I know it's not me. After all the good thing about me being so in tune with ovulation and when it's happening is that when my husband and I decided to start trying for a baby, I got pregnant both times within one month, not to mention the temperature spike and symptoms are proof that I'm ovulating, so I really don't know what the deal with this machine is. I don't know if it's going beyond erring on the side of caution, but red lights unless you're bleeding is a little excessive.
Out of curiosity I decided to look online at reviews on the web again-including 2DayDeliver. I noticed all the good reviews are suspicious and most of them follow a pattern. After seeing these reviews, I felt silly for spending so much money on Lady-Comp. I really wish I could get a refund, because taking my own temperature and following my body's signs was a much better birth control than this thing. That explains why the pear index was so high, you can't get pregnant if the only time you can have sex is when you're feeling icky and bloody!
Therefore to those considering buying this, SAVE YOUR MONEY. I wish I did. This is no more than an expensive thermometer with the ability to save you're menstruation data. That's it. Also, be cautious of you're research. I am very suspicious that many of the good reviews I see in regards to the Lady-Comp are from those who are affiliated somehow with the company. You have been warned

I have used the Lady Comp for 4.5 years of marriage as natural family planning. We've had no unplanned pregnancies; it works VERY well! I know the price is off-putting, so am now looking into apps that function just as well. However, I spent 6 months in Africa with very limited access to electricity. I charged the Lady-Comp only 2 or 3 times during that whole period. I never would have been able to keep track of fertility with a smart phone needing constant plugging in. My cycles are regular; however, if you're a despairing natural-planner with irregular cycles, the nutritionist I see, Karen Hurd, can get hormones regulated (regular, less painful cycles, with little to no PMS. Love). I've heard the device works better with regular cycles, which is why I mention. In general:
Pros: it works, it's simple to use, cost averages out over time (as of right now, I've spent $9/month on this, and it will be even less as I continue using), data collection method is easy, low-hassle
Cons: it has been sometimes too safe--I've had unprotected intercourse on a few "yellow" days and not gotten pregnant, so I know my window of "green" days should have been a bit bigger. I wish it would be able to predict with more accuracy if it is truly safe or not. However, I realize that since it is a prediction, we'd rather be safe than sorry. It has always kept me safe.
