Has anyone else seen these? I saw them at the store today and never saw them before. I was curious as to what sensitivity they are. I like the strips way better and will get IC's for next cycle (as I am sure I am out this one...AF due today or tomorrow), but I read the box and they are not early result and I cannot find one thing online about them. Anyone Know?

I am not sure about those...but I ordered wondfo online and got 40 OPK's and 10 HCG for 11.99 including shipping! I am not sure what the sensitivity is, but I have heard good things about them!

I don't know about their hCG tests, but I have decided that I do NOT like their OPK strips... I bought a 1 month Answer strip kit and also ordered some Wondfro online OPKs. I was using the Answer ones, but didn't seem to be getting any darker. The Wondfro set came in the mail earlier in the week, so for the last 3 days I have been using both just to see if there was any difference in the name brand vs the IC version. The Answer ones have actually started getting lighter, but the Wondro is *almost* positive today. Tomorrow is CD 14 and usually when I ovulate. NOW, just to make things a little bit more confusing, I had some minor spotting yesterday and the day before mixed with lots of EWCM.... I don't temp b/c the stupid thermometer I bought first totally stinks. I have ordered a new good one, but it hasn't come in yet, so I can't back anything up with charting...
Anyway, long story to say I am pretty convinced that I don't like the Answer OPK strips, so I don't know that I would trust their hCG strips. I do, like you, however, like strips in general way more than cassettes or midstream since I started using them!

Let us know if you try them... maybe it will change my mind!

I've never seen the pregnancy strips by Answer. I have seen the OPK's which never worked for me. I'd be interested to know if they are any good. I really like their regular tests as it is the only one I've gotten a dark line on so far.

Well, I cannot decide if I like them. I am 14 dpo today so expecting AF to start any minute now. I took a test (answer strip) and I swear I can see something, but not totally sure. I am pretty sure not though. I think I am just reaching here. Just didn't know what to make of these. The only thing I don't like is that the control line is SUPER light and it makes me think if that is soooo light, what will the test line look like if positive? IDK.... I am sure I am out so no matter anyway. we will see. thanks

It's normal to have a little blood in your ewcm, some women do and some don't when they ovulate.


I have seen ANswer brand but never got them so im not sure how good they are

I used them last month, The main thing about the Answer test strips is, you can't use them any amount of days before AF is due, they are meant specifically for a missed period.
