I just bought a pack of 100 wondfo ovulation tests from Amazon that came with 20 hpts for $30. I used them a long time ago when ttc our first child. As much as I hate spending $$$ on opks, I do love the cb digitals.

I used the new advanced clear blue digital this cycle and I got several days of the flashing smiley. Meaning it picked up on an estrogen surge. I got excited over nothing because I never hit my Lh surge. I think me having pcos effected it and it turned out to be a big waste of money for me. I ordered 50 of the wondfo off of amazon for around $20 to try when I eventually start my next cycle. I saw a lot if ladies swear by them on here so I thought I would try them out. Good luck!

 Thanks Ladies,

I bought first response because basically it was one of the cheapest minus the generic. It only cost about $15 with my coupon, but it's only 7 tests and a pregnancy tests too. If I am not successful this time around. I will definitely look into Amazon and the wandfo products. I have PCOS too so calculating is so tricky. Tonight is my last night on clomid. What days of your Cycle did you start using the tests? I only have 7 so I don't want to waste them. Thanks

I'm not much help on that. I'm sorry. I know it depends on how many days are in your cycle.

 I have PCOS (not cystic, but I have the hormone issues) and I take clomid...I buy the large packs of wondfo OPK & HCG strips from Amazon because my experience with OPKS (I have 3 children already thanks to clomid and trying for #4) is that you have to test at least 2x a day or you will very easily miss the surge. Do not use first morning urine either, test around 10am and again around 6pm. I have a 30 day cycle on average --when its normal and not screwy thanks to PCOS--so I start testing on Day 12 usually and tend to get an opk showing + on day 15-18.  BUT, you are better off relying more on other signs of o, like EWCM and CP as well...PCOS can make OPKs unreliable.

Thank you so much for your reply. PCOS makes my periods pretty much non existent. I haven't had one in way over 100 days...who know what that is doing to my body and that was even with a little encouragement from progesterone. I will have to look for the other signs. Because now I am wondering if I ever O. Atleast I know to buy off amazon next time around. I don't thik 7 sticks is going to be enough. Thanks for the tip about not trying first thing in the morning...I didn't know that. 

Thanks!
