    I think they are quite pricey? I read a review of them that said they are useful over the conception of a couple of pregnancies in terms of cost benefit but also, most fertility specialists will recommend that doing the deed every second day during your fertile window is the best approach so it really depends whether the monitor will help you manage fertility anxiety (in which case it might be worthwhile).

    I had the older version and it was great. My cycle at the time was a bit all over the place in length and ovulation cycle day.
    We ended up with IVF in the end anyway but the machine predicted when you were 5 - 7 days pre-ovulation too so you got the right window as opposed to some of the others which just tell you when you have ovulated.

    I found a brand new one with 20 ovulation sticks and 4 pregnancy sticks for $150 so that seemed ok.

    It's the biggest waste of money in my opinion if you have PCOS.

    I used it and got a solid smily and was all excited and worried that I was scheduled to late for blood tests with FS as I am on clomid monitored cycles.

    My LH (as is with most women) is elevated but the morning I used the clear blue when I got a positive solid smiley I actually had my bloods taken and my LH was 13. Clear blue should not have picked this up as a surge. Although a level of 13 is elevated it's nowhere near a surge level.

    Opks do not work very well with PCOS. I often get false positives.

    So I don't think this version of the clear blue will be better than the standard version as I assume it measures the same hormones.

    I have the standard clear blue fertility monitor and it is good. However, like everyone has said they don't recommend it for those with PCOS.

    Also ongoing the test sticks do cost a fair bit. Mine are around $40 a box off eBay.
