    rented mine from tesco pharmacy.( approx £30 for 6 weeks, i went 11 days over and they fine so long as you rung and said you hadnt given birth) they do work but best to get them from a few weeks before due date and use it as per instructions..

    Some doctors hire out for free, just pay deposit but wont have many. If you do want from Tesco make sure you order in advance because shortage of them locally when i was preggers.

    I bought mine from amazon for £30 with 8 pads and that was fine to use up until my wifes birth. She didnt really feel the benefit but I use it on my legs after footy :-)

    I'd say buy if its the same price. I'll try and find model number.

    My friend recommended me to get one as she used a one with her son and thought it was fab. I hired one from Boots (must book one in advance) and have to say I absolutely hated it and annoyed the hell out of me. Everyone is different

    find out how much replacement pads are as i went thru 2 sets. 2nd set was free part of rental price as 1st set didnt seem to stick as good as it should

    Oops! Well spotted and my apologies!

    Obviously I mean no harm as I thought all TENS machines were the same so I had better delete my post.

    Don`t worry, I know you wanted to help.Regards.
    I saw that on Ebay you can buy them for the rented price, but I don`t know which brand is best??

    I also rented one for Boots but I did find it fabulous! Good Luck choosing!

    I would say don't waste your money, i never had one and i really didn't miss not having one, but i was over and done within 5 and half hours so i was really lucky. Good luck.
