I'm going to be trying one of the OPKs from Moy, so I assume that's a stick. Anyhow, I've never used one before, but I think it would be nice to see how it works and if I can figure out when I "O" for when we do start officially ttc in the next few months.

I was never able to use OPK's since my hormones are so out of whack (I did try in the beginning though)...all the meds I took also messed things up...

Now HPT's are a whole other issue...I have invested a mint in them over the years..

I use OPK's. I've pretty much realized that I always get a positive on CD 14, but I still like to check to make sure everything is working right. I just buy 1 LH test with a bunch of HCG tests.
 
I just use the sticks, it's much cheaper and I don't see a need for the moniter.
