I use pregmate brand OPK’s from Amazon. The work great, and are cheap, so it’s not a big deal to test lots. I start testing in cd10. Usually twice a day. Around 10-11am, then 6-8pm. When they start getting closer to equal darkness, I start testing a few extra times during the day to make sure I don’t miss the peak! Good luck!

Thanks, that’s very helpful, I’ve only done bbt before so I will do that at the same time as well, so with the opks do u use 1st morning wee or second and evening?

Don’t use first morning because it can be too concentrated. Just the opposite of what the recommend for pregnancy tests!

I use the Pregmate brand as well. I tried the clearblue digitals this month but actually prefer the Pregmate brand.

Thanks, I’ve ordered a number of things to try and help along the way, opks, pregnancy tests, fertility lubricant and a digital thermometer, oh and trying to conceive vitamins, unsure how long it will take to get pregnant this time around, took 2 years with my daughter but only 3 months with my son, I’m trying to conceive with a new partner of 3 years so let’s see what happens, good luck everyone and hopefully we get our BFP’s and a sticky baby x

You could just do two then. It looks like you are about to surge to me!

First time I’ve used opks, usually I just do bbt but thought I’d do both this time around x
