it is a monitor that you records your cycle history and you pee on sticks when the machine asks you to - usually around cycle day 10; it tells you your 6 most fertile days; i dont know if it is good bc i cant use till next time; of course i am hoping that there is not a next time

has anyone gotten pg with its help?

It has to be started cd 1-5 like PPs said. My two MCs were conceived using it. The MCs had nothing to do with the monitor. We later found out it was a genetic problem.

I've been using mine for 2 years and counting. Does that answer your question?

question about the monitor...i used it for two months and then this past cycle (i'm on day 25) i did NOT use it because this past month is when we found out DH has the fertility issues - so i stopped temping and tracking with my monitor. it does show that it's on the correct day - but will it matter to re-start the sticks next cycle, since i didn't use them this cycle? my OBGYN wants me to keep charting - especially if we have to do IVF...

I had a year break with mine. Within the next few days the "M" should start blinking to let you start a new cycle. When doing my trigger I got my peek on CD11 when it still wanted me to test till CD14. To save tests I just stopped after the peek.
