We have a guide to OPKs in our sidebar that covers a lot of questions about how to use them. A lot of us here like wondfos because they are cheap as hell and do the trick. Once the test line (closer to the dipping end) is darker than the control, that's a positive.

u/Miroet · 12 pointsr/TryingForABaby

OPKs

OPKS (Ovulation Prediction Kits) are used to let you know when your body is producing more LH. LH ramps up in the body shortly before you ovulate. These kits are often a dip test that you use with urine you have held for 3-4 hours. Unlike pregnancy tests, these strips are only positive when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line. Having a +OPK does not guarantee you are going to ovulate. Instead, it says that if you do ovulate it will be within the next 12-48 hours. Though some people ovulate as soon as 6 hours, and some as late as 72, most people ovulate 12-48 hours after a positive OPK. Many women do not surge until the afternoon, so it is a good idea to test in the morning and early evening when you are getting close to the day you normally ovulate. Many of our users purchase bulk packs of Wondfo Ovulation Prediction Kits as a cost effective and reliable way to test during the cycle. Here is how to tell if your Wondfos are counterfeit. Sometimes your body gears up to ovulate and then decides to abort the ovulation for whatever reason. If that happens you will have a positive opk, however, if you keep using them you will find another positive opk in a week or two. If you are not expecting this, it may seem like you are late for your period, when really you are not.

"worth it" is relative - you can get a 50 pack off amazon for practically the same price as a 2 pack at the store, definitely worth it at that price point. Last cycle was my first time using them and I started on day 8, tested daily for over a week, sometimes twice a day because why not, definitely nice having more info.

Are you using ovulation tests? That helped me a lot!

These are pretty great: http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ovulation-Strips-50-Count/dp/B004IJHDN6

Also, /r/tryingforababy has a lot of great advice on this.

u/mrscartoon · 3 pointsr/TryingForABaby

Good luck to you! FYI, OPK tests can get speedy if you buy them from Walgreens, etc. amazon has a ton at a much better price. These get great reviews an are typically the ones I've seen used by the women here.

Hi there from a gal trying to conceive! Please pick up some of these ovulation test strips for your wife. I was tracking my "expected ovulation" days via an app and wasn't getting pregnant after having sex during the expected fertile week. I started using the test strips and it showed me that I was ovulating a week later than normal. Your wife may be in the same boat and ovulating early or late. The strips will show her the exact day of the month when her eggs are released and when you should be getting busy. Hope this month is the month that you get the good news!

u/Endust · 3 pointsr/daddit

Try some ovulation tests - http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ovulation-Strips-50-Count/dp/B004IJHDN6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1335055459&sr=8-4

Having sex 95% of the month is meaningless (aside of the sex!). You have to make sure you are having sex at the right time. We tried for a year, just naturally, and nothing. First month using the strips - pregnant and now due in August. They let you know when shes about to ovulate. They are cheap too.

u/Silvercumulus · 3 pointsr/infertility

I'm going to third Taking Charge of Your Fertility and also the subreddit /r/tryingforababy has some great info.

I wish your doctor would have explained that to you more thoroughly because it takes a long time to get a handle on what this all means.

If you're still worried, ask for a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist for testing. This is expensive and so I wouldn't consider it the first course of action.

Basal Body Temperature

Spend at least one cycle taking your temperature with a basal body thermometer (they're more sensitive to slight temperature fluctuations) at the same exact time, every morning before you even get out of bed. It's very important that it's done upon waking without getting up for at least 3 hours prior.


Chart this temperature for a whole cycle (if you ovulate, it wouldn't be unusual to see the temperature spike several tenths of a degree around days 14, 15, or sometimes even 16. It should then stay up for two weeks (use the first day it spiked as ovulation day and you can predict your period should come exactly 14 to 15 days afterward.) Were you to get pregnant it would have been due to sex three days before up to one day after ovulation day. If you're pregnant, your temperature will stay up past the two week mark. Then you would want to take a pregnancy test.

Some women chart their Basal Body Temperature, or BBT, on paper, but many use FertilityFriend.com. It's free and extremely helpful in visualizing what your cycle is up to.


Ovulation Predictor Kits, or LH Surge Predicting

Your LH hormone surge is what tells your body to release an egg. Test with urine (preferably after not drinking water for two hours before you test, which sucks) with these - most women use them and they're cheap and effective. Did I mention cheap? The directions are on the packaging but the test line needs to be as dark or darker than the control line. The best time of day to test is anywhere from 11am to 3pm. That's when your surge should show up in urine.


Cervical Mucus

Another great way to see if you're ovulating is to monitor your cervical mucus. Here's a great website explanation of the different consistencies you should watch for. Basically, if it's super slippery, stretchy and wet/clear, like egg whites, it's go time. Think of it this way: if you were a little sperm, what would be easiest to swim through? The stuff that's already like semen. Wet, slippery, etc. Not dry, not like hand lotion, and definitely not sticky/pasty/thick.


Finally,

If none of these signs point to ovulation, then I would see a specialist. If you seem to ovulate but still aren't getting pregnant, it could be your tubes or your uterus creating an issue. For all else, the ladies at /r/tryingforababy are great with answering questions, too.

Welcome! However, I don't want you here ;) - we don't want to be here either, so I hope you're going to be okay and won't need to come back to this sometimes sad place. Good luck.



Edit: Also, the good news is your age - the sooner you learn what's going on, the better, because your body is still so young!

u/HazMat68W · 3 pointsr/TFABChartStalkers

If you order the Wondfo OPKs on amazon, they really are affordable.

u/Mmedical · 3 pointsr/AskDocs

As you know, or you would not be asking the question, fertility and birth defects become more and more of an issue as time ticks by. I would not let a well-meaning GP have you give it a good try for a year before you start to do anything to evaluate your fertility. You very well may want to discuss this with a fertility specialist from the start - determine if there are issues and get them addressed rather than delay it another year spinning your wheels.

There are also some electronic means1 or 2 to monitor ovulation. Or urine strips to determine when you have an LH surge which should mark ovulation.





u/whenwillthewaitend · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

What you do next depends on a couple of things. If you're 35 or older you should schedule an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist (RE) after 6+ months of trying without success. If you're under 35 the recommendation for seeing a RE is once you've tried for a full 12 months or more without success.

The other scenario in which you may want to see an RE sooner is if you've been tracking your cycles and temping and you've noticed some glaring problems that have persisted several months after discontinuing hormonal birth control. These issues would include: having most of your cycles be anovulatory (where you're not ovulating), having a luteal phase less than 10 days, having a significantly amount of luteal phase bleeding/spotting more cycles than not or having cycles that are 60+ days. In those situations you may want to get checked out sooner since it's far more likely that there is a problem.

Assuming you're under 35, if you haven't been temping and charting I'd suggest you start doing that. I've seen ladies on here say how they started temping and realized that they don't normally ovulate when they thought they did so they'd been fairly consistently missing their fertile window. Just being a couple of days off on timing sex around ovulation can make a huge difference in how likely you are to get pregnant. To this end if you want/need a little help timing sex and you're not already using OPKs I'd suggest trying those. Most ladies around here like Wondfo OPKs off Amazon.

Also, all the abbreviations are over on the sidebar. :)

u/miserabletown · 2 pointsr/sex

If only there were some kind of test...

u/letsgetknockedup · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

I'm new at this, too, but as I understand it... you should use them 2-3 times a day (preferably afternoon & evening, the levels are higher then) until you figure out the best time of day. Then do 'em daily until you see the patterns!

As far as I know, it's usually something like no line if you're nowhere near ovulating, then faint lines that get darker as you get closer to O, super-dark during O, and back to faint and then nada as you're post-O. However, again, I'm new and if I'm totally bass-ackwards, I hope somebody corrects me. =)

And FYI, Amazon sells the cheapies! http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ovulation-Strips-50-Count/dp/B004IJHDN6/

They have pregnancy tests, too - just check for the Wondfo brand. I've had good luck with them, and I don't feel guilty if I waste one... but hey, if you're trying to figure out how your body is working, that's not wasteful! =)

u/damnyoulove · 2 pointsr/relationship_advice

If you are thinking of going the NFP route, you can buy these ovulation test strips cheap at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ovulation-Strips-50-Count/dp/B004IJHDN6/ref=sr_1_5?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1372703244&sr=1-5

They are mostly used by people trying to get pregnant, but I don't see why they wouldn't be helpful for trying to avoid pregnancy. This way, you will know with a great more deal of accuracy if you are ovulating or not. And they're cheap!

I went through the same problems you did trying various methods of BC. I finally settled on the IUD and that's worked amazingly well for me, but understand it isn't for everyone.

Good luck!

u/2ULIVE · 2 pointsr/PMDD

You can test to see if you are ovulating with these. I'm not sure if it would tell you, but they test for a specific hormone so I think it would work. Then you can know a little better when pmdd would hit. you could probably track it with a period tracker app like clue too.

u/nix0s · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

I think the next step of conception would be tracking if and when you do ovulate. A lot of the ladies here chart various items such as BBT and Cervical mucus, although it can be as simple as using Ovulation Prediction Kits.

As far as your fears of infertility due to medical issues, I think it would be important for you to talk with your OB about your intentions to get pregnant. They would know best about your body's health and capability, in addition to recommending the best courses of treatment if necessary.

Also, if you just want to talk, vent, or yell about fertility, pregnancy, or really anything, then jump into the chat we have setup. You can also find a link to the chat in the sidebar as well as up at the top of the page.

u/zainineteen · 1 pointr/TryingForABaby

These are Ovulation tests that test for Lutein Hormone (LH) which can help predict a forthcoming ovulation in the next 12-48 hours. It's not a guarantee or confirmation that you do ovulate - only temping can help confirm an ovulation. I use cheap Wondfo tests which you can order on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004IJHDN6

We're currently doing the Sperm Meets Egg Plan (SMEP) so that dark OPK means it's a BD fun filled weekend for me and the DH!

u/moarpi34me · 1 pointr/PCOS

It is totally possible to ovulate but not have a period. In a woman with 100% normal function, she'd ovulate somewhere near the middle of her cycle, conceive, and then not have the next period two weeks later. So, yeah. You could have gotten pregnant. I would go get a blood test ASAP. And, depending on your type of PCOS, I would recommend using ovulation tests for a month to see if you have significant fluctuations in your Lh levels. A significant spike would indicate ovulation. I use these to see if/when I will start ovulating (I don't currently, but I am on meds and dieting so that may change!) http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ovulation-Strips-50-Count/dp/B004IJHDN6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425582295&sr=8-1&keywords=wondfo+ovulation+tests Good luck, OP! And congrats - maybe? - on baby and your engagement!

u/ofboom · 1 pointr/sex

Amazon sells these in bulk for cheap.

But they also have tests at almost any drug store, in an easier read format but they're fewer tests for the money. Amazon sells bulk pregnancy tests too that are very similar!

u/crabcakes3000 · 1 pointr/xxketo

Do you use ovulation prediction kits? I believe those should still work with a Mirena. You can get a pack of 50 Wondfo 's pretty cheap on Amazon. I am actually really glad I started tracking, it's helped me understand my body much better.

u/SlyFrauline · 1 pointr/TryingForABaby

WONDFO OPK kits on Amazon are cheap enough to feel like you aren't pissing money away. I see them posted now for 41 cents a strip - even cheaper than the dollar store. http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ovulation-Strips-50-Count/dp/B004IJHDN6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1382299669&sr=8-3&keywords=wondfo+OPK

u/kithmswbd · 1 pointr/childfree

if you use natural family planning, make sure to use more than basal temperature (and make sure your sleep schedule is pretty regular or that measure is somewhat crap as well).

There are ovulation tests you can use too. They are more or less intended for those trying to conceive (TTC, get used to that abrev. if you go that route) but will assist in your purposes as well. They, like pregnancy tests can be pretty brutal in price unless you are shopping in bulk for just the strips. This is how I get my pregnancy tests too, btw, as I am on depo and test monthly since I don't have a period/withdrawal bleed.

u/mrsflatline · 1 pointr/TryingForABaby

We're at our first TTC cycle this month too! I also struggled with the basal temperature thing too. I found it easier to spend 20 bucks on a 50 pack ovulation pee test bundle on Amazon.
Good luck!

u/_honeybird · 1 pointr/relationship_advice

50 pregnancy test strips for $9.17.

If you're trying to get pregnant, the same company makes ovulation tests for about the same price.

u/missus_b · 1 pointr/RandomActsOfPolish

So basically what you'll need to do is track your cycle. I use the smart phone app called "Fertility Friend." You take your temperature every morning when you wake up and record it in the app. The day after you ovulate, it rises at least 0.3 degrees and stays up for at least three days, confirming ovulation. Here's what my chart looked like last month. After a few months, you'll be (and the app will be) able to see a pattern--say, that you ovulate on cycle day 18, and you're fertile from cycle day 14 to 18. Then you know to avoid those days.

I also use Ovulation Predictor Test Strips to help me tell when I'm about to ovulate because for me, I need to be trapping my husband in the house at that time ;) It might be useful to you if you're avoiding pregnancy to know when you should use condoms or just avoid sex.

I definitely recommend this book: Taking Charge of Your Fertility as a total textbook. There are other signs/metrics you can track to corroborate your predictions about when you're fertile (like the consistency of your cervical fluid and the position of your cervix) but those are harder for me to explain--I let the professionals do it ;)

This has worked for me in the sense that I know, with absolute certainty, when I am going to ovulate every month (I am just not pregnant yet). Many many women in committed relationships use this method successfully to avoid pregnancy without involving hormones--it just takes about three months to really establish a pattern. Let me know if you have any questions!

u/justsomemammal · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Ovulation does tend to occur about 14 days into your cycle if you have a 28 day cycle, but there is a range and some women ovulate early. If you want to do an experiment, you can buy ovulation test kits at the drug store, or super cheap on Amazon.
