So due to having long, irregular cycles I tested quite a lot last month and finally got AF on day 50 of my cycle.

I also spend a bloody fortune!

I keep hearing about Internet cheapies. Can anyone recommend some that work?

I don't know about internet cheapies but the first response website is selling 5 tests for £8.99 if that is of any use?

A bag of 20 little strips on amazon - really cheap and for me they were more sensitive than shop bought. Highly recommended smile

Thanks ladies. Will have a proper rummage online when I get home from work! They look so much cheaper. smile Fingers crossed for us this month. DH has realised how long my cycle is and how frustrating the wait is so is going to make a much bigger effort this month!

You can just pee in to a normal paper or plastic cup though can't you? No need for buying special pee cups? blush

pee in anything! my "favorite" is the little plastic pot that comes with washing liquid!

I buy a 2pk of tests from asda for £1 they are on an end with lots of random bits and pieces all a pound smile

ebay definitely, my cycles were long and irregular and i used to buy them in batches of 100 for about a tenner i think. And the seller used to let me choose how many ovulation/pregnancy tests so i usually got 90 ovulation and 10 pg tests. They are just the strips but quick cheap and easy. In fact i prefer them as you can see your wee as it progresses along the stick unlike the plastic cased ones! (Silly, i know smile)

I bought 50 from Ebay for £4 something! That's amazing value smile. Free postage too.

thethreeblondies I did get some from the end of the aisle at Asda but last few times I've been in they haven't had any! Also I'm normally in Tesco so its out of my way. I also do have lots of spare little plastic pots from the washing liquid too! Excellent.

titty I'm pondering OV tests but I'm still not sure, I think I can tell anyway. At the moment I'm just trying to wait until I'm 30 days in to my cycle to start obsessing.
