Hi all i`m just at the start of trying for a baby again at the old age of nearly 40 it took me well over a year to get pregnant with my son after a miscarrage, I am considering buying a persona monitor as i`ve heard you can use it to predict the right (or wrong for some) time to have sex. My question is has anyone ever used the monitor to help you get pregnant rather than not get pregnant. Look foward to your replies thanks

quite a few of threads about this sliminside previously - go to 'topics' then 'conception' and scroll down

I have and it really helped when ttc dd (no2) and no 3 (7 weeks). Think it is well worth the initial outlay. It helps you to pinpoint ovulation and therefore takes the pressue off trying to bd every other day or every is also a lot easier to use than OPKs in my opinion. best of luck.

I used a Persona when I came off the pill - firstly as a contraceptive and then to conceive. It worked first time we tried and I'm now 26wks pg! I find it incredibly reassuring to know when you are ovulating each month, and to know that your cycle is completely natural without extra hormones and so on. There seem to be lots of people here who used it and got pregnant by accident, but I'm not sure how that happens really because it does give you a lot of 'red days' when you could possibly get pregnant, and does take into account the time that sperm can hang around and so on. Maybe it works best if you have a regular cycle I suppose. Good luck!
