Digitals vs. Dipsticks

Last month i did the Wondfo OPK's and HPT's off amazon and am thinking about giving the digitals a try this month (since it looks like AF is here).

How do the digitals work? when do you test with them (FMU, afternoon, etc?) and do you only do them once a day?

Do you prefer dip sticks or digital (if you've used both)?

I never got a positive OPK with the Wondfo's and i must have dipped 75 sticks in the last 20 days. i really don't want to see another one for this month. lol

I use both - the digitals are soooo expensive though so I only use them to confirm the positive on the Wondfo now

yeah...i looked into the price and i feel like it would be worth it to have a clear "yes" or "no" instead of guessing.

i have about 25 wondfo's left...so i'd probably use both this cycle.

I used the digitals before from Walmart I did like because it was clear yes or no! I have some strips too and you're right it's a guessing game. The digitals come with instructions. I'm not sure what I'm going to do this month I might try them too!

 I Love my Clearblue Digital OPK. I test at 7AM or with FMU.  And once I see that Smiley face I'm off looking for Hubby, LoL!!!  Good Luck to you & LOTS of Baby Dust

my temps are crazy. 

FF gave me crosshairs and took them away like 4 times.

i don't trust my temps 100% so i'd like the reassurance of the OPK. especially since i am taking clomid and my DR won't do a blood test for O unless i get a positive OPK.

Thanks hun!! baby dust to you, too!!

So, you only have to test once a day and they're accurate? that sounds way better than 2-5 times a day with the Wondfo cheapos. lol
