I was thinking about using an ovulation predictor kit next cycle (if we don't conceive this month). I'm not sure if it will help with my situation since I only have one "side" and if I ovulate from the other side I probably wouldn't conceive. But still, at least I would know when an egg was released, instead of "flying blind."

So, which ones are the best? Should I go with a digital? The paper strip ones seem to be harder to read since they get progressively darker...

Get ICs and CB digital. I found that it was easier to back up a positive IC with a digital plus i loved seeing the smiley face.

That sounds like a good idea - can use the cheap ones all the way up to when I think it is a positive, then use the digital to confirm.

I actually read somewhere online that even though you only have one Fallopian Tube after a ruptured ectopic, the egg on the "bad" side sometimes manages to travel all the way over to the other side. So it's worth a shot!

I like Wondfo best and I use the clearblue digital to confirm.

But I DON'T like Wonfo pregnancy tests best. They give lots of false positives and then when you ARE pregnant they don't give you a positive as fast as other internet cheapies (I like the green handle ones best--I usually get them off ebay. They are super thin (width wise).

I like wondfo ICs in conjunction with CB digital. I get the 20 pack of the digital and use those once a day or more if I think I am nearing ovulation. I use the wondfos a lot and if they seems to be a little darker then I would use a CB digi. If you are only going to use one, then get the CB digi and get the 20 pack and test twice a day around your normal ovulation if you have a regular length cycle. if you have a long cycle like me (I O on CD 28 normally) then I would suggest maybe two packs or just testing once a day on most days.

Ditto on what others say, I'm using the Clearblue digital with 20 in a pack - I like getting the clear positive and neg without guessing.
