I've started using an OPK to track my ovulation, and was wondering what brand everyone prefers and why? I'm currently using the Clearblue OPK, and have a brand spankin' new pack of Wondfo O tests as well. Is Clearblue worth all the money?? Or would you say Wondfo is just as much bang for you buck? Or is there another brand that you like?

 

I'm new to all this, so any advice is much appreciated! I'll take all the help I can get to put a bun in the oven winky.gif

I use wondfos. They work fine but I make sure that I am tracking my other signs of O, too, e.g. Cervical mucous and my monthly o migraine. Good luck!

Thanks! I'm tracking cervical mucous, and I'm considering tracking cervical positioning as well, but know absolutely nothing about how to do it or what it means.

Well, my question answered itself this morning when I did my O test. I randomly decided to try out the Wondfo tests, and IMMEDIATELY got a positive result for ovulation! To make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did a second Wondfo and got the exact same result. Then I wanted to see what Clearblue would tell me-- and I got a negative result for O!! So, in my opinion, Wondfo wins this battle. Since I've also been tracking my CM, I can say that my CM coincides with the Wondfo positive O tests.

 

SO HAPPY my husband and I have had sex the past 2 nights!! Talk about instincts kicking in! smile.gif
