    Default ovulation and pregnancy test kits online

    Hi everyone,

    I ordered a bulk pack of OPKs and pregnancy tests on eBay, now I'm wondering having received it if these are as good as the ones you buy in chemists? Someone just posted a cheapie test with a BFN followed by a better quality test with a BFP!! I don't want to risk missing my fertile window using inferior tests

    The cheap OPKS have always worked well, the HCG tests don't show up until quite late for me, around 6-8 weeks pregnant.

    If I could afford the clearblue ovualtion kits I would use them over cheapies, but having 50+ cycle days I go through a lot of opks! I have conceived three times using cheapies

    thanks for your reply! I just got a faint line on an OPK which fits with my CM so i'm hoping to ovulate in the next couple of days! I bought 50 OPKs and 10 pregnancy tests for $10 so if only the OPKs work that's still a really good deal, I'll just buy a pregnancy test at the chemist. Personally I don't like Clearblue as I've had false positives with them, my favourite is First Response.

    I have cheap OPKs and HPTs. The OPKs are great, but the HPTs are definitely not as sensitive as they claim to be.
