    Default Thinking about using OPK's

    I'm thinking about using OPK's this cycle but know nothing about how to use them best to help us get pregnant so I would love for you to share your wisdom with me ladies ! Also where do you purchase yours? Online or at the store ? I should ovulate around the 9th I think so I want to order some online but don't know which to use.

    Thank you !

    You want to start using them several days before you think you'll ovulate, just to make sure. That way you'll definitely catch the right time. Use them once a day, and once you get a positive result, it's time to start DTD. The tests detect the hormone (I forget the name and am too lazy to look it up) that signals when you're about to ovulate, so you start getting a positive result approximately 48 hours before ovulation. Sperm can live for a couple of days, so you want to start trying before you ovulate to give yourself the most opportunities.

    I got pregnant the first month I used OPKs, so I'm a big fan of them. I like the Clear Blue Easy digital test, because you get a happy face when it's positive.

    Walgreens has a bunch of different brands. That's where I got mine.

    I've tried all different brands, but I normally get them at Walgreens too. Love that store! This may sound weird, but your little girl looks familiar, where in SI are you from?

    We used to live in Highland, moved in November. I finally remember where I'd seen her, it was at my neighbors party. She and my daughter played together.

    That is so crazy ! I've never met anyone who even lived near us, let alone that i have met before on any of these boards.

    I'm glad she was good. She usually is with other people, and then we get home and she is very two for us

    Me either. Even if it says Illinois, I usually assume it's no one I know.
    DD is the same way, wonderful for others, but then when she's back with mom and dad she's a mess!
    So how long have you been trying for #2. I went off BC back in Sept, but have very irregular cycles.
