Pregnancy avoidance

Could you tell me why you don't make the "Persona" system (that is, the Clearblue monitor programmed to use as natural birth control) available in the United States? From what I can tell, it's sold in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia.

I know the short answer is that it hasn't been FDA-approved, but why not? Has the manufacturer simply never submitted it for approval, or has the FDA rejected it?

Hi Elizabeth, We have simply never submitted it for approval.  Hope that helps!

You would have a rush of happy customers if you submitted it for approval. Many, many, many couples in the US are already using your monitors to both avoid pregnancy when necessary and achieve it. I'm confused why you wouldn't want to tap into that market in the US.....
