So after a long week of being over 1 week late, and experiencing about 80% of symptoms listed as early signs of pregnancy on all sites found when googled, AF showed up this morning. I guess it just wasn't in the cards again for me this month.
Anyway I was thinking of starting to use a fertility monitor. I've used OPK in the past but it's been a long time.
If I go w/ a regular OPK, what brand do people recommend?
If I go w/ a fertility monitor, again, I'd like to hear peoples thoughts? I have friends who I believe have used the ClearBlue Easy monitor, and if not lent out to someone else, I may be able to borrow their monitor, and obviously just buy the pee sticks, and that would save me some money, but if not, I may have to buy the monitor myself. Does anyone out there feel this is a good investment? Would it be worth it? I kinda like the fact that it gives you additional high fertility days besides the peak days, since it also measures estrogen.
I also read about the OvaCue, which is saliva based? I never heard you could do that, it seems odd to me....The product also has very mixed reviews, and I see that the vaginal wand is optional, but everyone who reviewed it seems to find the wand necessary, so I don't know why OvaCue wouldn't just include it as a standard item when purchasing? Weird. I probably wont go w/ this, since my cycles can be irregular and a lot of reviews say it has trouble w/ irregular cycles.
Are there other brands out there? I was googling fertility monitors and these were the only 2 that really came up. So I'd like to hear about opinions on them or if you know of another brand?
