Product Description

Size:1 x 8 Test Pack

Product Description

A hormone-free method of contraception with no side effects, that is 94 per cent reliable* Persona consists of a hand held monitor and simple urine tests. Each cycle you will do eight tests (16 in the first cycle only) to detect the changing levels of two key hormones - estrogen and luteinising hormone - to find out whether you are free to make love without contraception (green days) or are at risk of pregnancy (red days).

*Persona is 94 per cent reliable, i.e. when used according to instructions and as the only method of contraception, 6 in 100 women using Persona for 1 year are expected to become pregnant. The typical use failure rate while using Persona for a year is similar to the per cent of women that would become pregnant using barrier methods of contraception (such as condoms) for the same period.

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)

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.

Difficult to review this product beyond the fact that it's functional thing that I use every month. But I like the Persona brand and have been using it for the past 12 odd years. For me personally it's been pretty consistent and reliable.

In every packet, 5 so far, I have had one faulty stick! This affects the tracking so I'm having extended red days. I like this product but am frustrated with the faulty sticks especially given the price.

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

The product is highly satisfactory, but the problem is that for several months the test sticks have not been despatched in time for me to do all the tests that the monitor requests. I am considering obtaining the product from another source.

I've been using Persona for 12 years now, to remain free of pregnancy but also to get pregnant 10 years ago due to the accuracy of ovulation time predicted! It's fantastic for me as I cannot take the pill of any form, and am allergic to latex! Latex free condoms used to be difficult to find and more expensive, however now they're as available as normal ones, I use these during my 'red light' weeks, and am around 2 weeks a month 'green light' safe every month, so for me the Persona is great.

The supply and delivery of these sticks when ordered is excellent - I stumbled across them here on Amazon when Boots stopped selling them & now wish I'd known this supplier before, because Boot's used to charge nearly £13 a box! Excellent service, many thanks.
