    I'm just wondering if anyone uses it? And if yes, how good/ accurate is it? How does it compare to OPK?

    Thank you!

    I wondered this a while ago and the people I asked said it was rubbish. Might be worth a go though? Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    I got one from tesco for £6.

    I think its ok. i think it seems to work for some people and not for others.

    its certainly very easy to see the difference between ferning and non ferning patterns

    ive stopped using it though as you have to leave it to dry for 5 mins and i forget to go back to it!! i am not the most organised person in the morning though....

    i might give it another go now youve reminded me!

    Yes, I think i'm going to give it a go, especially at this price - will have a look on Monday at Tescos. If it doesnt tell me anything, not a big loss...

    I think this saliva ferning monitoring seems to be more popular in the US...

    thanks for letting me know!
