Product Description

Size: 1 x 8 Test Pack

Product Description

PERSONA is a method of contraception that works in harmony with your body.It works by monitoring the changes in hormones (luteinising hormone and estrogen) which control your cycle and identifies the days when you are at significant risk of becoming pregnant.

PERSONA consists of Test Sticks and a hand-held Monitor.

The Test Sticks collect hormones from your first urine of the day and process them into information that the Monitor can read.

The Monitor reads, stores and uses the information from the Test Sticks to let you know whether you are at risk of becoming pregnant (‘Red’ Day) or free to make love without a contraceptive* (‘Green’ Day).

Through its coloured Lights and Display Screen your Monitor tells you your contraceptive status.

How does PERSONA work?

PERSONA works by monitoring the hormones that directly control your cycle.

The levels of these natural chemical 'messages' rise and fall as they regulate the various stages of your cycle. This makes it possible to identify the days around ovulation when you are at significant risk of becoming pregnant.*

The Test Sticks collect hormones from your first urine of the day and process them into information that can be read by the Monitor. The Monitor then reads, stores and uses this information to let you know whether you are at risk of becoming pregnant ('Red' Day) or free to make love without a contraceptive* ('Green' Day).

The egg usually only survives for up to a day, however it is possible for sperm to survive for several days inside your body around the time of ovulation. PERSONA takes into account both egg and sperm survival times.*

During the first month of use, PERSONA will ask for 16 tests (day 6 and days 9-23) in order to build up a complete picture of your individual cycle as quickly as possible. From then on it will only ask for a test on 8 days of each cycle.

*Based on independent trials, PERSONA is 94% reliable when used according to the instructions and as the only method of contraception. This means that if 100 women use PERSONA for one year, 6 are expected to become pregnant as a result of sex on a 'Green' Day due to PERSONA incorrectly identifying their fertile days.

I've now been using this system for over 5 years... with no conceptions.
It's a great solution if, like me, you cannot use other methods such as The Pill.
It is totally natural and makes you far more aware of your cycle.

I agree with everything the previous reviewer has said but would also add;

- stick with it for at least 6 months while the device 'learns' your cycle. You get a lot of 'red days' when you first start using it and it feels a bit frustrating, but once you've been using it regularly and correctly, the red days come down to about 5 per month.

- if you have very erratic cycles or very short/very long cycles, it may not be for you as it can only cope with a certain level of variation (but it's still a pretty wide tolerance).

- yep, travelling with it can be a pain, especially if you're changing time zones. Tip: Keep a few of those sterile sample bottles (from your GP) so you can collect the first urine of the day but store it for the when you get the 'amber light' which is a specfic 6 hr time window (that you choose). Obviously this course of action is generally only necessary on the odd occasion... before I put you off!

I think this system is marvellous and regularly recommend it (should the topic arise!). It's nicknamed the 'catholic mating machine' in our house! :o)

Size Name: 1 x 8 Test Pack
I used persona, not as contraceptive but to try and get pregnant, as we had been trying for a few months without success (I had been using the "wee on a stick" ovulation predictors, which I found to be pretty useless). However, my second month of using Persona and we have success! I would recommend it if trying to conceive as it charts your cycle and gives you an ovulation symbol on two days each month, so you know that is when you should be trying to make a baby!

Not so sure about using it as contraceptive as there are a lot of red days (when you have to abstain from sex) but if you are looking for a natural method then this is OK. It is a lot of messing about, remembering to check your monitor every morning and having to wee in a container if you wake up too early - all of which you don't mind if you are trying for a baby, but to do it as part of a daily routine, just so you know if you can have sex seems, perhaps, more hassle that it's worth.

For tracking ovulation though, it is a big winner. Apparently it is cheaper than the Clearblue ovulation kit - which is marketed for women trying to conceive and therefore is priced at a premium (desperate women spend more money!) although it is made by the same company and does exactly the same thing.

I use Persona as the little known natural contraception. I think its fab as it works alongside your bodies own natural cycle. These are just the sticks that you need each month to be used in the controller which I already have. You have to buy a box a month so this is the most economical way of doing that.

Have been using Persona for years, works well for me. Having found these test sticks at a more than reasonable price has made my year! Beats buying them at Boots!

would be better if it were more hi-tech and tell you beforehand when it will ask for a sample- or if you could sync it to a computer, etc.
Also, it takes a couple of months to get more green days, so be ready to use extra contraception if you want to decrease your chances of pregnancy

It is good to see so many positive reviews for this product - it seems to have gained in popularity quite recently!

I have been using the Persona system for several years and it does work. Like several of the other reviewers I am unable to take The Pill for medical reasons. As other reviews also state, you have to stick with it for the first few months when there are quite a lot of 'red days', but the number soon reduces significantly.

I am not a person with a perfectly regular cycle - I vary between 27 days and 31 days most of the time (with very occasional 33 day or 26 day cycles, but Persona still assesses my fertility accurately - The number of tests requested each month give Persona sufficient information without making testing too much of a bind (although it takes a bit of getting used to).

Do not worry if the ovulation symbol does not appear every month. It doesn't for lots of ladies. When it does not appear there are usually a few more 'red days', that's all.

I would recommend this product to any lady in a long-term, stable relationship.

Thank you Amazon. Buying my test sticks from you has saved me a lot of money!

I have been using Persona for past 6 years, can be hard to get hold of the test sticks in the local shops and when you do generally expensive so this is a great buy! I have not had any mishaps since using Persona and in fact used it last year when deciding to become pregnant which was a success. I got pregnant on 1st attempt at trying so it shows how accurate they are and how tuned into your cycle they can become.

You generally become more aware of you body's own cycle anyway once using Persona so i would recommend it as a good natural way to avoid becoming pregnant. I had to stop using the pill due to health reasons and was dubious about this at first but i have total faith in it now.

I have just ordered more test sticks for the first time since having my baby 9 weeks ago and know that once it has got used to my cycle again i will be totally confident in not having an unwanted pregnancy!
