I have read that some of you girls buy pregnancy tests online and that they are cheaper. Where do you get them? I'm in Canada, and they cost 8-10$ a test, online also!! The way I go through them, that a lot of $$!!

Thanks!

Just FYI from what I've heard, and from personal experience, the OPK's work great but not the preg tests.

If you are still looking, I know i saw some at www.bareware.ca, and they are in Canada. I think they are $6.00 for one and $45.00 for 10. I am not sure what kind they are though.

Joan, have you ordered/used these tests? It just seems too good to be true and that usually means it is.
Just wanted to check before I ordered.
Thanks,

I've used the preg test but not the ovulation predictors.

The sticks are the same that are used in a dr's office. They're sealed. It's a simple plastic stick with a test pad on the end--dip it in urine, one line is neg, two lines are positive.

Nothing fancy---no "viewing window", "convenient handle", or cute "+" signs and you have to supply your own collection cup, but it does the job.

I have a set of both OPKs and HPTs from 2weekwait.com and although I had been doubting the efficacy of the pregnancy tests, I got a big fat positive last night! What a Christmas present! Not quite as sensitive as I thought they'd be (up until 13 DPO it was coming up negative), but in the end they worked!

The OPKs also seemed to work OK.

Good luck to you!
