TTC After a Loss

OPK Question

Hey ladies this month I have started using clear blue digital ovulation strips. The wondfos were stressing me out the last few months so DH persuaded me to splurge on the digital ones. That way it's a straight up yes or no and not having to interpret lines.

The package that they came in said that I should test first thing in the morning.... With what I know about OPKs this isn't always the best time. Should I follow what the package says to do or go with testing later in the day? Thanks!

Re: OPK Question

  • Follow the instructions. 

    Always follow the instructions.

     

  • Are you sure? I have them and the instructions say:

    You can test any time of the day, but it should be at about the same time each day [many women find it most convenient first thing in the morning].

    This is also on their website.

  • Follow the instructions! I have been using them in the morning with first pee and I got my smiley face this morning! So kept testing in the morning! Also your DH is right they can be less stressful.

     Ok good to know that FMU does work. they are just so pricey and I don't want to use them the wrong way lol.

    FWIW, I usually do both FMU and test in the evening in the couple days before my usual O date. I have gotten smileys with FMU.
