    I don’t use OPKs yet, this is our 3rd month trying- After 6 months I am probably going to try and use them but would definately keep DH in the mix. I think it’s fun to share the journey together. There is nothing sneaky or shameful about trying to want to make life together…you can still keep it fun!

    I used OPKs for a few months and stopped for a few months.  Back to using them now, DH likes to know there’s been a surge for some reason even though I’ve explained to him that it isn’t a guarantee that i’ve O’d.

    I use them, but didn’t tell him. A) I think it would be wierd to talk about the many reasons I’m peeing on something B) we BOTH want a kid and C) If I can keep it spontaneous for HIM, but with a bit of careful planning, we both get what we want.

    I don’t feel bad or dishonest, getting pregnant IS a science.

    I said No, but really it’s kind of. He knows you pee on it x amount of hours after your fmu BUT he still didn’t get how to read them. He thought that since there was a line it meant we were good to go… since hpt’s are an “any line” counts! lol

    Yes, he doesn’t understand them at all… or ask.  Lol he just calls it my science experiment in the bathroom lol.

    He kind of knows. As a concept, he knows I do OPK’s and that they help us know when to really get with the BD’ing. But I don’t tell him when im doing it. I don’t leave evidence easily visible in the bathroom, and I don’t tell him the results. 

    He still wants sexy time to be fun and spontaneous, not because a line on a pee stick tells us to 🙂

    Basically everything @runningcali said. DH didn’t like the pressure and I didn’t feel it was necessary to add any by telling him directly. I got KU the first month I used OPKs.

    My DH doesn’t know I use OPKs. We both want a baby and he knows we are actively trying, but he doesn’t like the idea of sex just for baby-making purposes.  Right around O time, if he doesn’t initiate sex that night, I will. I guess that’s a little sneaky, but I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want to know if I’m ovulating or not!

    He knows I use them, but I don’t tell him when they are positive or negative.  We’re NTNP at the moment, but if we were actively TTC, I’d tell him, no big deal.
