TTC after 35

Ovulation detector suggestions?

Does anyone use an ovulation kit?  I had my mirena taken out last Monday as we are trying for #3 and the Dr told me I'd get a period right away.  Well.....that didn't happen.  I've basically been spotting (VERY LIGHTLY) off and on since then.  I feel bloated and have gained 2 lbs (I know it can be water).  I am at a loss of how to know when I am ovulating and wondering if I should maybe get a kit or something.  Does anyone any suggestions on one they like that's not super expensive.  TIA!

    I use this plus the clear blue easy fertility monitor.  However, if you are looking for somethin super cheap, Amazon sells really cheap ones by Wondfo.  Good luck.

    It took about 6 weeks for me to get my period after I got my mirena out. I've heard of similar experiences from other people.  

    I didn't start charting or monitoring for ovulation until after I got my first period.

    thank you.  I guess I just need to be patient....something I am not good at.  can I ask you...did you wait to start trying until then as well or did you just do it just in case you were ovulating?  TIA
