Re: talk to me about opks

I used the answer OPK's for this cycle and really liked them. They were like $11.xx for 7 tests. They did have a 20 count box of tests for like $20 but I don't like the little strips. If you wouldn't mind them, then that is a good way to go for testing twice a day, and answer is a reliable brand!! GL!

Re: talk to me about opks

I think i had first response, but I am not positive (didnt use them the past one or two cyles). At first i thought you were supposed to use FMU but you are supposed to wait until 12-4ish, and I didn't ever think my surge line would get as dark as the control, so I was thinking they weren't working, but they eventually did. HTH!!
