On a whim I ordered these from eBay.... anyone know if they're any good? If not i won't be too bothered as they only cost me a few pound

I looked at those too and was unsure because of the cheap price.

Yes. They show my ovulation each month - confirmed about 24hours later with my ovulation pain.

I get mine from Amazon.

They also make pregnancy tests, but I don't find them that great.

Pretty sure they're fine even though they're cheap! They were always accurate for my ovulation (even though I have mild PCOS) and I got my 2 BFPs using them. I'm pretty sure they're what the NHS use too.

In fact I switched to them after using the Clearblue Fertility Monitor for 1.5 years (around a £1 a stick - I dread to think how much I spent!)

They are okay although their midstream pregnancy tests are awful, avoid those.

You can get cheap dip tests which aren't coming from China which are a bit better. I know the Americans all swear by wondfo as being the best cheapie brand but I don't know if you can get them there.

Here in Germany it's one-step or clearblue or €4-7 generic tests. Such a pain! I think I'll pick up some cheap ones when I'm in the UK next.

Oh no I ordered pregnancy tests too! Oh well, they were only £1.20 for 2 of them. Got 5 ovulation ones too, glad to hear they work!

I got about 30 of these off amazon for about £4 - been using them for two cycles and they're great for giving you and idea for when you ovulate.

I've just started using these - I'm on day 15 of an on average 35 day cycle. Showing no LH surge yet. It's the first time I've ever used these so I'm hoping they will show clearly when I am ovulating. This is our 3rd cycle TTC - fell instantly with our first. Putting a lot of pressure on ourselves and struggling to relax about it all. Only planning on tracking ovulation this month so I have an idea x

They worked for me and the pregnancy ones were fine too

Oysterbabe Tue 21-Feb-17 21:23:33

They're fine and I got my bfp on one of the pregnancy tests.

BillyButtfuck Tue 21-Feb-17 21:25:47

Yes I used these and the Pregnancy tests and both worked perfectly

user1471495191 Tue 21-Feb-17 21:26:54

Yup - worked well for me both times ttc

Fruitcocktail6 Tue 21-Feb-17 21:34:39

Both the ovulation tests and the pregnancy ones work really well for me. I got my first BFP with one of those.

Andysgirl15 Wed 22-Feb-17 07:12:49

I use these every month and are brilliant. In fact it gave me my + the other day followed by ovulation pain the next day and im now 2dpo

jmariehac Wed 22-Feb-17 09:17:00

First month I used them I fell pregnant I was using an app before that which was obviously wrong xx

Mummy081212 Wed 22-Feb-17 18:11:24

Can anyone help? Left to right is Monday, Tuesday and today? Am I ovulating? Or getting close? X

jmariehac Wed 22-Feb-17 19:08:23

I would say yes it's when the two lines are the same u ovulate xx
