Thumbs down Answer opks test strips

I give them a big thumbs down. If I didnt use fmu, I got zero lines. When i got closer to when i usually ovulate, i switched over to the answer tests-- the plastic kind you pay more money for, and it showed up positive right away. The ones I didn't like were the little strips you dip in your pee.

I have such a wacky cycle that the opks don't work for me. I get two or three peak times a month with them -- and I mean the pricey ones!! I have one left from last year and haven't even bothered with it this year!

I have to say that OPK's are one of those things that 'you get what you pay for'. I've used cheap brands, and got whacky results.

The best ones I've used were for a fertility monitor. They were very reliable!
