My dollar store doesn't carry them... and I can't stand how much packaging the $store ones use. i'd like to get some in bulk online. Anyone recommend a good brand? I'm looking for cheap ones and as long as they're relatively straight-forward to read, that's all i need. Suggestions?
do you buy your OPK's online?
I have been buying from early-pregnancy-tests.com. I like them, but they aren't the cheapest out there at about 80cents a piece. Amazon carries wondfos which are more like 10cents a piece, but I haven't tried them yet. The earlypreg ones come individually packed in a little "envelope", and I think the wondfos come totally unpackaged. . .which is nice to save on plastic, but I have heard people complain that they come all stuck together.
I've bought from Amazon before (a couple different sellers, but same Wondfos), and always had very good luck with them. They each come in an individually sealed package and they have been very accurate. (I may get one that is invalid once in awhile, but not often-- I've been testing for months remember! I simply don't dump out my pee until I see that the test is valid.) I always get a package of 40 OPKs and 10 preg. tests for about $10, and they have very little packaging waste.
Actually, I have found the ones of Amazon to work better for me than store bought ones, like FR. I had some FR ones left over, and used them side by side with the Wondfos. Never got a "true positive" with FR, just a "darker than it was before" line, but with Wondfos I have always gotten true positives, and it always has coincided with my other fertility signs,
