Fertility Monitors VS Ovulation Prediction Kits
Mercerswife posted:
Hey ladies, so I've been at this OPK thing for quite some time and I'm finding it's adding up. I'm wondering if anyone has invested in a fertility monitor and if it's been any different that an OPK? I have 33-38day cycles and now my Clomid has been raised to 100mg to shorten my cycle so I'm not sure when I'll O. So I usually buy 30day kits and start testing around day 10, but I'm wondering if it's worth the money to get a monitor. Any thoughts?
