    Sorry no - even gave up on the opks - Temping was the best method for me, and it's free! xxx

    Hi.
    I got some cheap ovulation & preg test on ebay which worked first month for me, you can buy them in bulk so take as many as you need :)

    Yes I used CBFM and got pregnant twice. Much more accurate (for me anyway) than OPKs and you can track your cycle better. Stick at it and when you get your PEAK on the CBFM you know for sure you will be ovulating. Good luck with your BFP. Fingers X for you x

    We didn't try for this baby. S/He is a blessing though. I did though have some Ovulation tests and did a little experiment :D My ovulation tests came out with a dark line after I found out I was pregnant. I ended up taking a few to test the myth out. It was fun hehe. Sorry I am no help

    Hi,
    I initally used IC OPK's (only) but decided to order the CBEFM in prep for my next cycle as i struggled to see a peak reading on my OPK strips. But on that month i did get a darker test line and managed to BD the right time and got pregnant. Unfortuantelly it ended up being a chemical. So the next month i used the CBEFM for the first time. I actually though i wasnt going to peak as i generally Od around 11/12cd, but i think due to my chemical i O#d 2 days later and got my peak on 14cd. I think i would have missed it without my CBEFM as i has no OPKs left and only used the monitor. I actually got pregnant and am 11 weeks 3days today - so i would use it again. Even though i got pregnant with the OPK's the first time i think the monitor is easier as it does all the work for you. I'm also keeping my monitor till we want to try for our next child as i loved it even though i only used it for a month!
    We were trying for a total of 6 cycles - 3 months with opk's and 1 with the monitor.
    Sorry the reply's a bit a bit longwinded, but hope it helps.

    I used the CBFM for two months and got pregnant both months (first one was a chemical pregnancy). I also used preseed during the second month.

    Good luck!
