I've never used an OPK but am considering trying if I don't get a BFP in the next couple cycles. I just googled them and they are a little pricey!

Where do you get yours? I found this website and am wondering if anyone's ever tried anything similar. Looks like you get 25 for $10.50.

Yeah the ones I use are pretty similar to those. I get mine on amazon and they look like this http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ov...Ovulation+test

But I've heard you can get cheaper ones on eBay!

yeah, I've never used the online ones but I know alot of ladies on here do. Dollar Tree has OPK's for $1 (first choice brand) if you want to try them out.

Yes they are expensive. I don't use the online ones, because many of those resellers are selling expired lots. And another thing I learned this passed fall, OPKs expire within a few weeks if opened. So I only buy one box at a time. I use them ALL during that cycle, because they won't be good in the next.

I also use the amazon Wondfos that Moonangel uses - they have been working pretty well for me so far but I know every now and then some people get a batch that is pretty worthless but they are a lot cheaper than buying the boxes in store.. They have never been already expired when I got them. This is my best option because of the price but I also temp. Hope you find what works for you!

I also use the online ones. And I buy the Answer brand ones that have 20 + 1 pregnancy test, and those run $20 at wal-mart here. This last month, in my poas addiction, I also bought the clearblue ones (I did a major stock up) and I really liked them as well, but they were more expensive and I wouldn't use those my whole testing period. It was nice to have several brands to try and see the difference in them when I got my positive one. The clearblue gave the best result, with the wondfo's giving the 2nd best pos., and the answer giving the least clear result until a day later. That's my experience this month.
