    Default IC OPKs and HPTs vs FRER

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone has experience with Fertility2family OPKs HPTs?

    Positives and negatives pls.

    I have used FRER with no problems before but this month my positive OPK was followed by AF 10 days later so now questioning them (and me).

    Looking at using IC this cycle due to cost but don't want to waste a month for penny pinching.

    Thanks. Kx

    I brought some ic to start and try an pin point o day. I went off the pill in October and have only had AF visit once
    I also brought the maybe baby saliva tester. So between the two I hope I can work it out when I ovulate. When it comes to
    Getting a bfp my plan is IC then first response then a digital test.

    I use them and they are great. They aren't as pretty as the FRER OPK's but I pay $4.50 for 20 of them This is only the 2nd month of using them but mine got darker last month until the surge on CD 13 when I knew I was ovulating bc of EWCM. They are meant to be pretty sensitive too.

    If you are a POAS addict like many of us TTC, both the OPK's and pg tests are cheap and seem pretty reliable.... although I sadly haven't got a pos on a pg one yet *sighs*

    Kpet the opks worked awesome. The hpts not so much, but are great for the days when you are too impatient to wait lol. I'd def buy more. I paid $7 and got to poas to my hearts content (guilt free).

    @scarlett - i had the saliva tester too which didnt work for me after breastfeeding (not enough estrogen gah spelling sorry). Apparently this can be the case off the pill too so trust the opks even if saliva isnt showing ferns.

    @kyls. Thanks. Didn't realize that. I seem to get better saliva results in the afternoon then in morning actually.

    That's about what I paid. CD6 today and the should arrive in the mail today or tomorrow just in time for me to start POAS day and night.

    Thanks everyone
