I think so. Dd s air purifier was in the same category as our insurance premiums.

But I am going to spend the money on Creighton classes, I rarely sleep longer than 4 hours a night.

I would be omitting half of the month based on those factors. Plus, I like the extra days buffer for planning purposes with the Ovacue.
Ovacue can be thrown off by to much salt ingestion, (I mean quite an excess) but that isn't a problem for me. They also have the best customer service I have ever received, unlike some others I have heard about! They replaced my over a year old Ovacue no questions asked when it started to have a repeat date on it.

I know that it says not to use for TTA, but it works perfectly for us.
Why is it not recommended for tta?

Re: Lady comp?

Anybody used the lady comp while EBF before getting your period back...or do you have to wait to use it until your cycle comes back?

I believe it's just because they haven't put it through all the testing/trials etc to get it approved for use as a contraceptive device I have one that I am planning to use for TTA. I would've considered the Lady Comp if it wasn't so expensive!!
