  • those are a little harder to tell when you surge try the digital ones you can get them for cheap on ebay. Just to cover yourself DTD every other day.

  • I just use the Shoppers Drug Mart brand and as they are all different, you do need to read the directions carefully. With my test sticks, the small window is just the test window which tells you that you peed on the stick enough and that it is working... it shows as a light or dark line. The bigger window is the one that tells you that ovulation is approaching. In my case, it has to be the same or darker than the test window. Hope that helps!
