Logistics of OPK testing outside the home?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I decided to start using OPKs to complement temping, and stocked up on internet cheapies. However, I've read that morning is often not a good time to test as FSH levels rise through the day. This presents a problem since I work somewhat long days and am typically outside the house from 7am to 7pm.

 

I'd love to hear how some of you have handled this situation. I am willing to use 2-3 strips per day since I got so many, but am not sure if a morning and evening test alone will be enough to catch the surge, or how to hide testing during the day at work. Our main bathroom has multiple stalls, and while we have a couple more private solo facilities, I'm not sure how to sneak a fresh strip out, and don't want my co-workers with offices on that side of the building to wonder what's up if I suddenly start going over there to pee every afternoon 2whistle.gif.

 

Any thoughts are appreciated. TIA!

I just put a paper cup and my test in a small bag and take it to the restroom with me.  No one has to know what's in it.  Our stalls go all the way to the floor so no one could see my shoes to know who is in there.  The cheap tests only take 5 minutes.  I just hang out until it's ready.  It's never been an issue.  I definitely recommend testing during the day.
