Question re OPK tests

(2 Posts)

I've been trying on and off to get pregnant for a year now - came off the pill 12 months ago and fell pregnant right away and miscarried (my 3rd mc).

Had a wee break for a few months and was trying again April to June but nothing. Another break and came off the pill again and tried last month but not surprisingly didn't conceive.

I know from previous pregnancies that I've ovulated quickly after coming off the pill and I know the on again/off again pill taking has messed things up a bit so I wondered about the benefit of OPK tests but I see so many people unclear on the readings or getting positives at odd times I wondered how much of a benefit they would be - my thinking was if I could at least prove I was now ovulating that would confirm if I should start trying again.

I'm 36 now and while I know that's no age but I do worry I've hit that fertility cliff and it would be good to know just how much my chances of falling pregnant are decreasing.

Any thoughts? Also, best place to buy? I saw some cheapies from ebay - mostly being shipped from china and while I don't want to spend a fortune, I want them to be reliable.

Many thank!

Stop mucking about with your hormones by going on and off the pill. Come off and let your body get to its natural rhythm before trying seriously.
