    I used the David Ovulation Tests from Pregnancy-Tests.com last cycle. It seemed to give a pretty clear result that matched my BBT temping perfectly.

    I bought the fertility2Family ones but I haven't had a true positive yet. In fact, the fact that I wasn't getting a positive stressed me out so much it completely messed up my cycle that month. I was following all the instructions (even took the kit to work with me so I could do it at the same time every day). I was so stressed that I wasn't ovulating (according to the opk's)I found that it was just better not to use them!

    So if you don't get a positive, don't make yourself sick with worry like I did. After some research I found different brands work for different people and they aren't 100% reliable. Using other methods of tracking, Im sure I do ovulate, the opk's just didnt work for me. Good luck

    Depends on how much you are willing to spend. My fertility specialist recommended clearblue digital....(it's what they use for IVF) 7 tests reliable but expensive. Worked everytime for me & learnt a lot about my cycles. Good Luck!

    I got some last cycle from forelife that I liked, I dont think I like these internet cheap ones, they're not even showing up a faint test line, I think I'll go to the chemist today and get some more forelife ones. I'm on cd14 today so I want to get it right.

    Sometimes some women never get a true pos on OPK's. I know one member at BH that started a thread saying she got no true pos's for the month.... and turned out pg a few weeks later

    I have no problems with the ic's. I get a nice dark line when I surge. But everyone is different. It's kind of like the common question which formula is best? the answer is it's different for each baby and I think OPK's are the same.

    I had success twice with the digital OPKs by Clear Blue. The first time was after 7 months of attempting to interpret the lines on the normal non digital OPKs... nothing beats seeing that little
