Ok Ladies-

I need to restock my supplies - I have enough OPK's to get me through this cycle if I start at about CD10 but I'm out of cheapie tests and I was thinking that as long as I"m ordering from Amazon maybe I'd order some FRER or Answers to have as well.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to go with Wondfo's again for HPT's. Has anyone else used a different brand they've liked more for cheapies?

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if this will be helpful at all, as they may only be available in the UK - but these are the ones I've always used

20 x 10mIU/ml High Sensitivity Pregnancy Test Strips: Amazon.co.uk: Health & Beauty

I've used the US version of one step.. ordered them from e-bay. Won't be ordering again. They're the crazy thin strips and where about as ambiguous as wondfos.

Don't fall for the Easy@home ploy like I did. They are just wondfos dressed up in a pretty bag.

I just stick with the cheapies and then top it off with cassette tests from walmart and an answer test. that way I don't feel bad when I go crazy and test at 5dpo

I use the Wondfos for my cheapie brand and usually get them off Amazon but I have never ordered them with out a pack of OPKs before. I think I would probably grab some of the dollar store ones but if you wanted to stick to Amazon I have looked at these before:

Amazon.com: Early Pregnancy Midstream Tests (Hcg) 7pk - Up to 5 Days Early Extra Sensitive - No Cups Needed.: Health & Personal Care

I have never gotten them but they seem somewhere between a cheapie and a more expensive pink dye test. I wouldnt expect too much from them though and would always back up with an FRER.

Edit - After reading more reviews I think those are just as good as Wondfos. . .

Thats my thoughts exactly too Ashley.

I turned into a freak about testing this past cycle and burned through all of my tests and then some. I think I'll just have some to have on hand.........and stock up when I'm at wal-mart next time. I've got a while to restock anyways, but a girls gotta be prepared!

I looked at those last cycle too......but I didn't need to order desperately so I just figured I'd wait to see what happened. Well, now I need to restock so I may try them out and see.

I'm thinking a pack of Wondfo's, those, and Answer. That should ease my mind a bit.

I am so over the wondfos but they are really cheap so I use them to feed my POAS addiction. On 12 DPO I usually use and FRER because that is the "prime" testing time lol. Walmart tests are not bad though, same with dollar store. Just beware the evil nasty evaps on those two brands!

I do use the Wondfos as my cheapie brand, but I also like to keep some of the Clearblue digital pregnancy tests on hand just in case I do think I get a positive on a Wondfo so that I can double check.
