    Default Which OPKs are better?

    Hi ladies, DH and I are going into our 7th month of TTCing, and I'm after opinions on which OPK is better to predict ovulation.. I use urine OPKs and a lot of the time I never really get a definitive positive. I'm thinking of buying a Maybe Baby saliva OPK. Are they any good? Are they better at predicting O than using urine tests? Should I maybe use both?
    I have just started charting my temps I just want to use these as well to definitely pinpoint ovulation.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Nic.

    hello

    personally i found urine opk's to be the ones that helped me get my bfp.

    the maybebaby for me was a complete waste of money. it would show a negative, then i would have a sip of water (which is allowed) and then test again (2 mins later) and it would show postive. then 10 mins later, negative again. i pegged mine out the window in pure frustration lol

    I have only ever used the urine Internet cheapies. After we Stopped TTC I gave them to a friend and she got pregnant first go using them.

    They were so cheap and I never had a problem with them.
