Family Planning at its best!
FINALLY! A Natural Method of Family Planning that is effective, simple and
approved by the Catholic Church! What are Ladycomp and Babycomp? Ladycomp/Babycomp
is the first truly comprehensive professional medical system in the world for
conception and contraception. It comprises all the services offered by a natural
family planning professional, including:
(taking your temperature and asking about menstruation dates)
collection and evaluation of data (the drawing up and analysis of a temperature
graph and menstruation data) and
diagnosis and/or prognosis (fertility level on individual days, establishment
of a pregnancy).
The process of taking the
temperature is intelligently controlled by the system to avoid possible errors
(e.g. the incorrect positioning of the thermometer, too short reading time, etc.).
As a result optimum reliability can be guaranteed.
these applications are accomplished by a computer which is 3 cm high, 14 cm in
diameter and weighs just 200g, and all you need to do is to press one button once
a day for trouble-free daily use, meaning that the device can be operated by any
lay-person without previous experience.
enables Ladycomp/Babycomp to predict the fertile and infertile days in a woman's
monthly cycle in a simple, rapid and reliable manner (requiring less than one
minute per day), and without interfering in any way with the natural course of
her body functions. Ladycomp/Babycomp allows women to employ universal, natural
family planning without any harmful physical interventions. It also dispenses
with the need for bothersome intrusions in a couple's sex life, which are contrary
to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
Universal because it can be used for both. Avoiding a Pregnancy , i.e., the intentional
prevention of pregnancy and Conception, i.e., it offers assistance when conception
proves difficult, as well as in family planning. The method is fundamentally based
on the following proven medical findings:
only ovulate once in each menstrual cycle. If, in rare cases, ovulation occurs
twice or more times, this happens within the same 24 hours.
ovulation, the egg cell only retains its capacity to be fertilised for a period
of maximum eighteen hours.
After sexual intercourse
has taken place the sperm only retains its ability to move and fertilise in the
woman's body for 96 hours.
The theory that
sexual intercourse (SI) can stimulate ovulation has been proved to be false. There
is no logical reason for a woman to burden her health, or her sex life, with contraceptive
measures for approx. 28 days, when in actual fact it is only possible for her
to become pregnant on 5 days out of these 28.
diflerence between Ladycomp and Babycomp Ladycomp is recommended for all women
looking for a safe and reliable natural method of avoiding a pregnancy. With the
exception of the "special programming section to plan for a baby", both devices
are identical. If desired, this "programming section to plan for a baby" can be
built in at a later point in time, meaning that a Ladycomp can be converted into
a Babycomp. Babycomp is equipped for universal family planning. Universal because
it can be used for both avoiding a pregnancy, i.e., the intentional prevention
of pregnancy, and conception, i.e., it offers assistance when conception proves
difficult, as well as in family planning. Comparing Ladycomp and Babycomp.
this mean that I still need to spend several minutes every morning taking my temperature?
No. Ladycomp/Babycomp uses a specially developed, patented, extraordinarily fast
yet very exact electronic temperature reading sensor. This sensor reads the temperature
within approx. 30 secs. and is accurate to one hundredth of a degree. A discreet
acoustic signal tells you when the reading has been completed.
is all that you need to do for natural family planning with Ladycomp/Babycomp.
It takes less than a minute when you are still half asleep before really waking
up. You do not need to record your daily temp readings on a chart - the machine
does that for you. Saves time and gives you all cycle information at your fingertips.
The answer is as simple as Red Light or Green Light!
AVAILABLE: The Pearly
mini palm size economy version of Lady-Comp. Uses same software and operational
techniques with a simplified LCD data display. Also 99.3% effective. Operates
with internal lithium power cell. No plug or batteries required! Travels easily
and fits in any purse. Lasts about 3 years.
Looking to Achieve a Pregnancy - The BabyComp
ultimate NFP tool. An upgraded version of Lady-Comp, reliable for avoiding a pregnancy
and for conceiving. Assists with infertility. Built-in pregnancy test. Displays
ovulation prognosis 6 days ahead, optimum fertilty date, cycle statistics as well
as gender information. Data records can be printed.
Is it possible to use Ladycompi Babycomp without being woken up every morning
by, for example, taking your temperature when you wake up naturally?
Yes, as long as the time of the temperature reading does not vary by more than
four hours. Ladycomp/Babycomp calculates the temperature reading time automatically
on a daily basis. Using the previous reading times that have been saved, it then
shows the time span for the next temperature reading. A tiny thermometer is illuminated
during the time span for the next temperature reading. If you wake up and see
that the sensor symbol is illuminated, all you need to do is press the button
and take your temperature. If you want to be absolutely certain that you will
not sleep through the entire time span, you can set the alarm for the end of the
temperature reading time.
Q. If the temperature reading
needs to be so accurate, is there not a risk that I will make a mistake when taking
my temperature especially when I am still half asleep in the morning? For example
the thermometer may slip or be incorrectly positioned in the mouth.
The entire temperature reading process is "intelligently" controlled by Ladycomp/Babycomp.
This means that Ladycomp/Babycomp questions the electronic thermometer several
hundred times a second and expects a clearly defined rise in temperature. If the
rise in temperature proceeds in a different way than is expected, e.g. because
the thermometer has slipped out of position during the reading, this is immediately
noticed by Ladycomp/ Babycomp.f the temperature was not correctly positioned right
at the beginning of the reading (e.g. on top of the tongue instead of underneath),
this will also be noticed as it will be lower than the other readings stored in
the memory. The same applies when the temperature reading is interrupted too soon
(before the device indicates the actual body temperature and the acoustic signal
confirms the end of the reading).
Q. Is it all right if
I don't take the daily temperature reading once in a while - e.g. if I am sleeping
away from home or because I want to wake up really late?
Yes. As we have already mentioned, Ladycomp/Babycomp can determine your level
of fertility because it has worked out the course of your cycle by statistical
calculations using the data which has already been entered. In the same way it
is also feasible for Ladycomp/Babycomp to fill in missing readings. This is naturally
only possible if there are readings in the memory. Therefore at the beginning
you should take your temperature as regularly as possible. The more data that
is stored, the better Ladycomp/Babycomp will be able to predict your fertility
level.If there is not (or not yet) sufficient data in the memory to predict the
infertile days with adequate security, Ladycomp/Babycomp will always play it safe:
in case of doubt it will show "yellow" = learning area. It is therefore important
not to omit a temperature reading unless there is a good reason.
What happens if I have a slight cold or have had a late night and drunk alcohol?
This can result in a rise in temperature. Will this not also result in a false
reading and therefore incorrect fertility display?
No. As we have already explained, Ladycomp/Babycomp calculates the future course
of the cycle (and the corresponding fertility level) 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, as well as the typical normal fluctuations in body temperature.
How reliable is Ladycomp/Babycomp in comparison with other methods of avoiding
A. The reliability of a method of
contraception is expressed in the medical profession by the Pearl Index. The Pearl
Index indicates how many unwanted pregnancies occur in 100 user years. A contraceptive
pill with a Pearl Index of 1 means that if 100 women use this pill for contraception
for one year, one woman will nevertheless get pregnant during this time. The Pearl
Index of a specific method of contraception is determined by means of large-scale
surveys. The scope of such surveys requires the observation of approx. 20,000
cycles.The development of Ladycomp/Babycomp was able to benefit from the fact
that thousands of women had already been using the temperature method for years
and had therefore been compiling their charts and data. It was possible to save
this information on magnetic disks together with data concerning exceptionally
difficult cycles from text books and the archives of research institutes. If Ladycomp/Babycomp
shows "green", the likelihood of a pregnancy is less than when taking the pill
(Pearl Index = 0.6).
Q. What happens when I start using
LadycompiBabycomp? Does Ladycomp/Babycomp need a sort of "running-in time", during
which I should continue to take the pill?
absolutely not. When you take the pill, you do not have a normal cycle since everything
is "turned off" by the medication. The bleeding that you have every 28 days when
taking the pill is caused by the withdrawal of the medication. It is triggered
off by your discontinuing to take the synthetic pill hormones for seven days.
This seven-day interval was introduced for psychological reasons to create the
impression that you are having a normal cycle. The bleeding caused by the withdrawal
of the medication is in no way related to normal menstruation. In the same way,
no ovulation, and therefore no rise in temperature, takes place when you take
the pill. If you continue to take the pill, Ladycomp/ Babycomp is not able to
take readings of the natural temperature fluctuations in your cycle. It is therefore
superfluous for you to continue to take the pill when you begin using Ladycomp/
Babycomp as the device does not require a "running-in time". At the beginning,
Ladycomp/Babycomp works using data history which has been programmed into the
device and is applicable for all men and women (therefore also for you) and which
therefore enables the device to make reliable forecasts. This data history is
increasingly individualised during use. The individualised data makes it possible
to narrow down the fertile days from one cycle to another with more and more accuracy.
The "infertile" display is however just as reliable on the first day of use as
it is after two to three months. The difference is that at the beginning it appears
Q. I am using the temperature method
at the present time and have kept a record of temperature graphs. Is this also
possible with Ladycomp/Babycomp?
A. Yes. You can
recall previous temperature readings onto the display for up to 120 days. If for
any reason you should want to have the readings in black on white, in the form
of a hardcopy, we can let you have a printout at any time (for example after six
months) to enter into your old graphs. Although this is quite possible, it is
not essential as Ladycomp/Babycomp functions perfectly well without this information.
How safe is Ladycomp/Babycomp technologically?
To ensure the technological reliability of Ladycomp/Babycomp, tests are carried
out on every single device after manufacture instead of on a spot-check basis.
A specially developed test-computer checks that all the components function efficiently
so that we can be confident~that only entirely reliable devices leave our production.
Can you also use Ladycomp/Babycomp vacationing or when camping?
Yes, of course. Ladycomp and Babycomp are delivered complete with a battery-box.
How does Ladycomp/Babycomp operate when the electricity supply is unreliable?
In some holiday countries there are frequent fluctuations in the mains voltage
and occasional power cuts.
A. The device is safeguarded
against power cuts and fluctuations in voltage. In addition you can always operate
your device with batteries.
Q. What about when I have
to work night-duty or other shifts, or when I go on long journeys involving changes
in time zones?
A. Journeys within North America
and South and Cetral America do not involve any changes as far as using Ladycomp/Babycomp
is concerned. You set the device in line with the local time of the country that
you are visiting and take your temperature in the usual way. The time difference
of these countries still falls within the temperature reading time span of approx.
6 hours. In the event of extended journeys to countries with considerable changes
in time-zones, such as Europe, the Far East, Australia, Africa, you set your device
according to the local time. The following day Ladycomp/Babycomp will be ready
to read your temperature and you proceed in the normal way. The same applies if
you change the time that you get up because of shift work or some other reason.Ladycomp/Babycomp
can still reliably predict whether you are fertile or infertile on days when you
do not take your temperature by using the data that has already been memorised
to make its calculations.
Q. Who developed Ladycomp/Babycomp?
Ladycomp/Babycomp was developed by a team made up of: Gynaecologists, software
specialists, experts in electronics and designers. Experience with the device
in practical use and its proven success in vivo have also made a considerable
contribution. The project was supported by the Innovation Fund of the Berlin Senate
and the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology. The electronic brain, containing
knowledge about fertility, and other components are manufactured by leading suppliers
from all over the globe
BEST-KNOWN METHODS OF Avoiding a Pregnancy:
Pearl Index 0,6 Pro: Natural, well-tolerated, easy. No further costs after
initial purchase. Very reliable. If desired, can later be equipped with the Babycomp
special planning program. Contra: There are a few days a month when abstinence
VS. other methods of Natural Family
Planning approved by the Catholic Church:
Temperature Method Pearl Index 2-4 Pro: No side-effects, natural. Contra:
Involves adhering to many rules. Larger margin of error when various methods are
used. Prospective interpretation very difficult. Time-consuming written charting
Mucus method This method is time-consuming
and requires training. The mucus method is not very reliable or very adaptable
as there are 4 different types of mucus and in the case of many women the mucus
only appears when it is too late for contraception, i.e., after ovulation, and
continues for an unnecessarily long time. Also, the dependability depends on how
reliable a woman's daily observations of mucus are - in order for the mucus method
to be totally reliable, a woman must check for mucus EVERY TIME she goes to the
restroom in a day (and even at night). This is difficult, time consuming and demanding.

note from JMJ Products:TotallyCatholic.com: RELIGIOUS DISCLAIMER -
LadyComp used alone as a way of "Natural Family Planning" coincides with the teachings
of the Catholic Church. JMJ Products: TotallyCatholic.com does not endorse the
manufacturers recommendation in the manual to use other forms of artificial contraception
or barrier methods in conjunction with LadyComp. In place of such recommendations
we suggest that abstinence or self control be used during times of fertility,
such as when a RED or YELLOW light is displayed. The accuracy of Ladycomp / Babycomp
to prevent pregnancy will NOT be affected by this change, as long as intercourse
is restricted to days associated with a GREEN light. TotallyCatholic.com is a
