With LadyComp Baby, Lady-Comp and Pearly, it is not necessary to graph monthly charts. However, if you need to produce a graph for your own personal review or for you physician`s assessment you can do so at any time. All your data including, dates, basal body temperatures, fertility diagnosis and menstruation data are retained in the computer`s memory for each day of the previous 9-6-3 months respectively. You can access them easily at any time. As well, we can provide you with a free Clinical Print-Out and Cycle Analysis upon request.
The safety and reliability of any method of birth control is directly related to the woman`s commitment, its ease of use and consistent compliance. LadyComp, LadyComp Baby and Pearly fertility computers secure an accurate daily BBT within 1-2 minutes. The integrated alarm removes the possibility you will forget to take your temperature. The temperature reading time limit is six (6) hours. This allows you the flexibility of getting up early and sleeping late while still securing an accurate BBT for the day.
Safe and reliable birth control is necessary throughout a woman`s life. Lady-Comp, LadyComp Baby and Pearly adapt to your changing needs. The devices can be used for effective family planning by women with irregular cycles. However, if your cycles are very irregular, if you do not ovulate each month and you often miss a menstruation, you may receive more red and yellow-lights and less green-lights than a woman with regular cycles.
The first six weeks after the birth are infertile for physiological reasons. If you breastfeed your baby without giving any artificial feeds, theoretically you continue to be infertile due to your body`s production of the nursing hormone prolactin, which inhibits ovulation. This theory is generally believed to be true today. In actual fact however, some couples have started a new pregnancy during this time. This makes some form of birth control necessary soon after birth. The products are a suitable choice of natural contraception during breastfeeding. As your cycles begin to re-establish, the computer is sensitive to the minimal alterations in temperature before ovulation. As well, during the three days after you ovulate, hormonal changes cause a rise in your basal body temperature, which lasts at least until your next period. If ovulation occurs during a cycle the computer will detect the changes in temperature and issue red-lights during fertile days. However, the device requires confirmation of menstruation dates to calculate the cycle day. The cycle day is required so that the thermal shift can be confirmed as being related to ovulation, based on the timing in the cycle. For this reason, the lights will remain red and yellow until your first natural menstruation is confirmed.
LadyComp, LadyComp Baby and Pearly can be used by peri-menopausal women. If the device detects a delay in ovulation or a missed ovulation it will indicate this by yellow lights (Learning-the clear classification of this day as fertile or infertile is not, not yet, or no longer possible.). However, when ovulation occurs during a cycle, the computer will indicate the daily fertility diagnosis. A green-light display (infertile) can always be considered as 99.3% reliably infertile.
At times there may be factors which influence the daily basal body temperature readings. Abnormal fluctuations in the body temperature such as those caused by sickness, alcohol consumption or lack of sleep will not interfere in the reliability of LadyComp, LadyComp Baby and Pearly fertility computers. Although if you know the temperature will be abnormally influenced by these factors, you should cancel or skip the measurement for the day. The computer calculates the future course of the cycle from the temperature readings that have already been entered. These calculations are made for each individual woman and comprise the typical highs and lows of the temperature curve before and after ovulation. LadyComp, LadyComp Baby and Pearly analyze each temperature reading for accuracy.
