Next week I ovulate sometime and I was wondering do I have to temp and use OPK? Or can I just use one or the other? Which one more accurare? And if what kind of thermometer and where can I buy OPKs cheap online?

Temps are more acurate as far as telling you if you ovulate. BUT once your temp as shifted ovulation has already occured where is with OPKs you get a 24 hr heads up once its positive. So you have time to bed. If you temp over a few months time and your regular then you would get an idea of when to bed before O. But otherwise I suggest OPKs. You can get a positive OPK but not actually O. It happens when your body gears up for ovulation but just doesn't. That is when temps can confirm if O actually happened or not!
