    Default OPKS - the good, the bad and the ugly

    Hey ladies... what brands of opks have you used and have any been really bad/good for you???

    So far i have tried First response and havent had a problem, this cycle i tried the forelife and confirm brands but have ended up getting postive reading for 12 days and counting... normal with FR i only get two days....

    Has anyone else found anything similar to this?

    I haven't had the long stretches of positives, but are you sure you're not pg? I always got positives when I was pg on opks.
    I used opks from eBay, v cheap and reliable, for me anyway. Not sure of the seller, but the strips were davidstrips branded.
    Good luck!

    Second this! Davidstrip have been reliable. Both OPK and IC. Oracle Fertilty sell them in mega bulk packs for cheap both on the net or on eBay. :-)

    Good luck!

    Am tempted to start using OPK's... sorry to be old and daft, but can you buy these at the chemist? I need to start investigating whether I'm actually ovulating at all, since I have short cycles, so OPK's seem a good place to start.

    Can you buy them offline, at Chemist Warehouse etc? Taa

    Hey. Yeh you can buy at chemist, Coles an woolies and I'm pretty sure online too. The first response ones I've found the best. The confirm and forelife ones I've had way too many positives on this month.

    Good luck!!!

    I always bought mine through Oracle Fertility and had no issues whatsoever. I fell pregnant twice using them.
