This is only my first month trying but if this month isn't the month than I think I will try the ovulation packs. Can you recommend a brand? can you get cheapies like pregnancy tests? Do you use them everyday or only when you think you are ovulating? Your help and opinions appreciated
I use one step, same as babyrose. This month I used clearblue advanced digitals, didn't get on with them though, they are supposed to show high fertility and also peak but I never got the peak. And they are £25 for 10 tests
If your periods are irregular in nature they are a waste of money. I would avoid using these things altogether.
Also usage of such kits are not without problems and are certainly not infallible. These kits work on two misleading principles, namely that there is one rise in LH every month and that such a rise is followed by ovulation. Both of these are simply not true.
I use cheapies from about day 10. As soon as the line starts to get dark I switch to cb diggies (not the ones that you give you flashy smiles). I do this because I cann't always decide if the test line is darker than test line so as soon as shows any darkening colour I switch. Usually get two days without smiley then get my smiley face. A pack of 10 is expensive but this way they last me longer and I get the reassuring smiley.
I should add that I've been trying for 15 months and using these for 9 so maybe not the way to go!!
