    I used these and found them brilliant, only drawback was they were expensive.

    I would recommend them without hesitating.

    I know they're a bit expensive but as its the 1st time I'll have used anything like this, I thought they'd be very simple to use.

    They are but they cost far too much. I'd buy some cheapo internet ones, and use those until you think you've got a positive and then use a digi as a back-up. I think the superdrug ones are good though - midstream tests to so more convenient than peeing in a pot at work! They are buy one get one free at the moment (£15.99 for 5 tests).

    Well I kind of agree to an extent, but I did get a positive on the cheap ones this month (same day as my CBFM peaked) but they are cheap enough that you can do 2 or 3 a day if you really want. Unless you are Richard Branson's wife, doing 2 or 3 clearblue digi's a day would bankrupt you!! And anyway, the digi one takes all the fun out of staring and tilting in the light to see if the lines match!!

    got the digital one this month and keeps on giving me negative, even though judging from the CM and time of the month I should be ovulating.
    the only thing is that I cannot go 4 hours without peeing as the instructions say i should... so maybe i'll never get it right.

    Hi Girls just wondered what you think.

    LAst cycle FF advised my O day was CD 12.

    Unfortunately this month I had been working oin Scotland for a few days. I got home late on CD10. CD 11 I took an OPK and it was positive. CD12 took another and it was negative ( been using Clear blue digital).

    We DTD on CD11pm and CD12 am.

    FF identified my O day as CD 10 this month !!

    Can you confirm I am correct in thinking I am 100% out this month??

    xxx

    If you bd on the 11th than you should have caught the egg.. Sperm lives up to 5 days in you and the egg lasts 48. They had to meet sometime then.. :) Good luck
