Wow this ttc thing gets more technical the more I read! Never heard of that before-everything is worth a try though eh?! Im just using the standard POAS OPKs although I have pretty irregular cycles so is costing me a fortune as I never quite know when I'm going to ovulate. Good luck and if you do try the saliva test, let us know how it goes. Baby dust!

I have only started using it this cycle, but I think it did work. I am still getting some small ferns now, but either day or the day after I ovulated, I saw full ferning, so think it might be ok. It is a bit more fidgety than OPKs, and a little harder to read. Think it takes practise to read it properly

I've been trying the Maybe Baby saliva microscope for about 8 months. It's not a cheapo - I think it's about $75 and one of the orignals? Anyway it doesn't work for me. I have ferning at random times and then no ferning when I'm O-ing sometimes. Obviously it works for some people though. Good luck!

No sign of ferns now, and O completely over, so think it works fine for me!
