I have never had an issue with my local dollar store ones, I figure I will just buy those for both pg and opk. At most I would be spending $20 a month (nearly the cost of one frer). And since i know the sensitivity I know not to test until at least 15-16dpo (I usually have an 18 day LP).
You're totally right- the IC works just as well. Yes it's lovely to see those lovely clear lines on a frer, but it's best to wait to get a line on ic first before splashing out on FRER I think (I'm trying to convince myself as much as you lol)

I'd agree. I only ever test early with ic. If I see a definite line I'll then splash out on a frer. They're too expensive to waste

I'll take a look at your thread now

Lora, what's your bleeding been like if you don't mind me asking? I know you said it's not even bad, just like a regular period?
Normally mine are light & last 3 days... But it's so heavy

Can anyone help me, af came yesterday.. So that makes me cd2., my periods have ALWAYS been 28 days on the dot. Never been late or early (apart from been pregnant)
Roughly what dates will I be ovulating? So best dates to make sure I dtd? if I'm correct, will it be 8th/9th October?

I've never tracked before, so it's all new to me. My first pregnancy, I came off the pill and was going to wait a month to start trying officially.. But got pregnant straight away while taking a "not trying, not protecting". & same happened again second time when I'd come off the implant xx

Hi kandl. I think it varies as to when you ovulate. I usually have a 26 day cycle and ovulate on cd12 or 13. I know this by temping and taking opks.

On a 28 day cycle the usual time to ovulate is cd14 so as you said 8/9 Oct. But you could ovulate earlier or later.

Have you tried opks? Temping is a bit stressful so I'd say to start with opks. I get a pack of 20 from amazon for a few quid. I start on cd 9 and when I get the positive (test line same or darker than control) I usually ovulate 24-48 hours later.
