The operation of the Lady-Comp is so simple that you will hardly need the manual.
At the beginning the Lady-Comp needs some basic data: your name, age, height and weight. The Lady-Comp immediately calculates your current BMI ( body mass index ).
If you have a record of the time of your last menstruation, you can also enter this in the Lady-Comp. This will accelerate your evaluation.
Then you set the time at which you want to be woken. You must activate the integrated alarm clock in the Lady-Comp only for the very first measurement. Later, it is possible to use a different clock – or none at all. The Lady-Comp can be switched completely silent, so that your spouse is not disturbed by the morning measurement.
Measure immediately after waking up, half asleep and lying down. Your so-called wake-up or basal body temperature is read directly into the computer.
For the measurement, place the probe under the tongue. Then you press a key. After completing the measurement a signal is heard (if the Lady-Comp is not muted).
The devices are equipped with a specially developed, extremely fast and also very precise electronic measurement sensor. It measures the temperature accurately,within approximately one minute, to a hundredth of a degree. Measurement errors are not possible because the measuring process is monitored by an intelligent system. The device questions the electronic thermometer several hundred times per second, and expects a very specific course of temperature increase. If the measurement does not meet the expectations, for example, because the sensor has slipped, this is then immediately recognized. The same applies, when the measurement is stopped too early, before the signal sounds.
Enter by pressing a key, if you just have your menstrual period. That’s all.
You can see immediately how fertile you are for the next 24 hours. “GREEN” means “not fertile”, “RED” means “fertile”. “YELLOW” means “learning area”, it lights up at the start of the application, or if the unit has not received enough inputs over a longer period of time.
What the Lady-Comp needs to know in principle, has already been programmed. What the device needs to know in particular on your individual cycle, is calculated from the analysis of your daily measurements. The longer you use Lady-Comp, the more you will know about your cycle automatically. Lady-Comp indicate what statistical conclusions it draws from your collected data.
You do not need to wake up at the same time every day to measure your temperature, meaning: getting up earlier or sleeping longer presents no problems what so ever.
You always have a measurement period of six hours. Even with shift work, a measurement is possible. The measurement times can be moved, according to your wishes. Most important is that you have previously have had enough sleep (at least about five hours in total). Lady-Comp calculates the temperature reading time daily and automatically. When you wake up and see that the sensor symbol lights up, you can take your temperature.
The statement “GREEN” is from the first day of use reliable. If the data material for a forecast is not sufficient, the device will always remain on the safe side. If in doubt, it shows a “YELLOW” (learning area) or red light.
If your temperature rises, caused by colds, larger amounts of alcohol, drugs, extreme stress or time shift all of these can lead to changes in your temperature. Lady-Comp examines every temperature value and recognizes these measurements as so-called “special cases”. This measurement will not be considered for further evaluation of the temperature curve. You do not have to fear that these “special cases” will disort your temperature curve.
If the measured value is indicative of a fever, an “F” appears in the display of the Lady-Comp. It is generally recommended, to interrupt the daily temperature measurement temporarily when in febrile diseases, so that not to much “abnormal” data is stored.
You will see that the use of Lady-Comp is very easy. In any case of a doubt, we are there to assist.
