    I really want to order the 100 pack which seems pretty cheap to me. But I am in Canada. And I feel weird for some reason to order that stuff.

    It seems like I feel like Im doing that out of desparity, but Im not desperate.

    Its just that I haven't seen the IC's anywhere, they are always sold out. It costs 50.00 for 9 1st response ovulation. And Thats too expensive to buy all the time.

    I used internet cheapie opks. They worked fine for me. I got 30 for around $5 shipped. Much cheaper than buying them in the store. Also I have longer cycles and like to be able to test multiple times a day if I want so being able to buy a bunch for less money makes more sense.

    Why do you feel weird about it?

    I bought a 20 pack of the clearblue easy digital OPK tests from Amazon a while back for $25. Way cheaper than buying from the drugstore. I personally think the digital are easier to deal with. No questions about reading them... They are individually packed so you can use the carry overs the next month.

    I don't think it sounds desparate to want to understand what your body is doing. Not everyone gets ovulation pain or is up to the task of temping every day. I used OPKs my first cycle TTC this time. I think it's kind of a helpful tool.

    We order all sorts of goofy things online these days. Everything from sugar to lotion. My husband actually looks on Amazon for good deals on grocery items, LOL. It's totally not weird to order anything you can't find reasonably priced (or can't find at all) locally.

    Ditto.

    I would rather buy them anonymously than go and buy them in a shop.....I don't find it weird at all.

    I love buying ovulation/HPT tests online, I got I believe 40 OPKs and 10 HPTs off amazon for like 10.00 and free shipping (give or take a dollar). I am the opposite of the first post, I get nervous buying them in stores because I feel like the cashier knows my business haha I also think it is natural to feel a little weird at first because its something new, but you will get used to it :)

    Id get some yea, its not like the postman will open them and laugh at you as you open the door. no one will know whats in the package and the person selling them to you doesn't know you in person. On line it all secret.

    I'm from Canada too and order my OPK & HPT's and FertilAid online too. I usually use EPT.com. It comes in less than two weeks and in a descreet package. No one is the wiser :winkwink:

    I'd say got for it, don't feel weird all at!!
