    Depends how much you wanna spend. I've heard that the clear blue digital fertility monitors are good, don't own one myself as they're so expensive, but are simple and easy to use. The sticks are pretty much the same I get mine off ebay as they're less expesive than buying from a shop. Try this website it's really helpful with all this sort of stuff https://www.peeonastick.com good luck

    I have bought 2 boxes of Walgreens brand OPK kits. It comes with 20 or so sticks. You urinate in a cup (they provide), and then hold the stick in the urine for 10 to 15 seconds. You then wait 4 minutes for the result. I bought them mainly because they were fairly affordable. Last month using them, I received a positive OPK result on a 7am pee. This month, I received 2 positive OPK results, one was yesterday morning around 7am, and the 2nd positive result was yesterday afternoon, around 5pm. They seem to work fairly well, imo. They run in the price range of $16 to $19.

    Awesome, sounds like you found an OPK =D If you did buy the Walgreens brand, one thing to remember is that the test is only positive if the second line, the "test" line, is either as dark, or darker than the control line after 4 mins...

    From what I understand, and believe me, I am no expert on this field, unlike many of the ladies on this board... I understand that when you get a positive result, you are having a high amount of lutenizing hormone (LH) in your system.. The purpose of LH is to tell your ovary to release the egg down for ovulation. From what I read, it can be like on average 12 to 48 hours from your surge to the point where that eggy is ready to meet the spermies. But also, the LH surge can last for hours, so there is a possibility you are catching the surge on the tailend, meaning better get busy, the sooner the better (as I interpret it). Also, remember the sperm can live inside you for potentially days, but it seems like at least many hours.
