Over 40? You Still Need Birth Control!

There is a pervasive myth among women in our culture that if you are over age 40, you no longer need to worry about birth control.  Television personality and physician Dr. Mehmet Oz believes that women over 40 assume they are too old to get pregnant, and therefore become lax in taking precautions.  As a result, women in this age group parallel adolescents in the amount of unplanned pregnancies and abortions each year.

Another reason women over 40 may be avoiding birth control is lack of knowledge of new research expanding their contraceptive options.  Up until recently, women over 40 were cautioned against using any hormonal forms of birth control due to increased risk of blood clots.  This left condoms and tubal ligation as the primary remaining choices, so women not interested in either chose to risk playing the odds.

Recently, studies have shown that due to a dramatic decrease in the amount of estrogen present in birth control pills on the market today, the pill is now a safe alternative for older women who are lean and healthy.  Unfortunately, they remain verboten for women who are obese, smoke, have migraines, or have high blood pressure, among other conditions.

Doctors say that if a woman does not wish to get pregnant, she should use contraception until at least one full year has passed since her last spontaneous menstrual cycle.  If you are over 40 and cannot or do not want to use hormonal birth control, condoms, or surgical sterilization methods,  Lady-Comp provides you with a highly effective and all natural alternative.  Lady-Comp is a personal fertility monitor which learns and adjusts to your individual cycle regardless of irregularities or cycle length.  It is programmed with a database of more than 900,000 cycles and uses bio-mathematical forecasting calculations and computer techniques to predict your fertile days, primarily based on your morning body temperature.   Research shows that Lady-Comp is 99.3% effective, higher than both the pill and condoms.  To learn more about Lady-Comp, please feel free to call us at 1-877-925-LADY.  We are looking forward to speaking with you.

  1. Been faithfully using LadyComp for 13 years — my question is I am 48 and my cycles are changing. No problem so far with LadyComp. This month, I have had all red days and I am on day 24 and still red. What does this mean and should I be worried?
