I am considering purchasing a ladycomp/pearly for birth control.
Does anyone use one? Success or failure? considering that the failure could ruin my life I am nervous about starting this form of birth control, however it seems like the only natural option. Its quite expensive $400-$800.
Please help me with my desision.
YES! Get one!
I have three girlfriends who all use the Pearly - with success (no pregnancies!). Two of them are Doulas, so they know their stuff when it comes to fertility, etc...
I wanted to buy one but could not afford it, so I have gone off birth control and am simply relying on the same information the pearly does, but using a calendar and my own calculations (instead of the computer telling me red light/green light days). My naturopathic doctor friend taught me how to calculate my cycle, just as a Pearly does, so if you can't afford one - go to a naturopath and ask to learn about fertility charting/tracking.
Otherwise - yes, worth the money, totally works :) You have to use other methods (condoms, etc) in the first few months while the machine gets to know your body, but after that, it's all good! :)
omg i am thinking of getting one too!! i cant take any hormone birth control as the side effects are unbearable. i am going to read the book 'taking charge of your fertility' first to understand it a bit better. i would be a bit nervous as well coz ive already had one abortion :/
I got a vasectomy. If I was a lady I would get my partner to have it done of find a man that has had it done.
If you dont want kids, dont have sex or get surgery so you dont have to worry about contraception.
ok ill make my next bf get one ;)
look up menstrual extraction and dohicky project women in my community use that
Love it, but you have to teach it min. 3month. Unfortunately mine did get into problem 3times after each time, so i have to enchange it and lost all the data, that is little making me crazy. But now it works perfectly. Thank god!
so, without the problems, u recommend T?
And what about that book u mentioned amy?:?
100% also, the best is to cuddle, in bad days and to enjoy the freestyle in good days, so you simply are even more enjoying the lucky days:)
Taking charge of your fertility by Toni Weschler. i will buy it and read it soon
Thanks everyone for your replies! seems more pro's then con's on here & throughout the web! :)
I have been using the babycomp for over 3 years and it has been working for us!
I love it! Just wish it would give me more green lights ;)
