    Default Saliva microscope test VS LH surge test?

    Hello ladies, I'm using the LH surge pee in a cup type tests at the moment, but am considering getting the maybe baby microscope/ferning test instead.

    Does anyone have any advice on which one worked better for them? I don't want to waste the money on the microscope if it's crapola

    I've got a maybe baby. I used it for a couple of months, but it was ferning when I wasn't ovulating and nothing when I was. Very annoying. Having said that, a friend fell pregnant 2nd month of using hers.

    Im using both OPK & Maybe Baby at the moment only because this was my first month of using them and neither of them worked....

    My sis inlaw lent me her Maybe Baby and she fell pregnant first month on it. I know another friend who was the same. And a few other girls who have had success on it.
    But also knew a few girls who never had accurate ferning.

    I think Maybe Baby works out cheaper... I think its about $60 for Maybe Baby and you can use it over and over whereas OPKs are $30 and you only get 7 tests per box...

    The saliva tests can be hard to read. OPKs are far easier and more reliable IMO.

    Saliva scope was a waste of time for me too. Never got accurate ferning, was ferning when I wasn't ovulating and not when I was. I has the OvuPllan scope which is a lot cheaper than MaybeBaby, but still a waste of money in my opinion. Go with the OPKs.
