    Cheaper ones.  But bear in mind that some people won’t ever get a positive OPK (hi, I’m one of them.)  For the best results BD every other day or every second day until you get your AF or BFP.  I highly recommend charting if you have been TTC for 6+ months without success.  Charts were more easy for me to read in order to figure out my O date since OPKs never worked for me.  The major problem I have is that I rotate a short cycle (~30 days) with a long cycle (~60 days) and it took about a year for me to figure that out.

    I have used both but much prefer the Wondfo’s. I used the Clearblue Digital first and it worked great- I got 2 days of +’s that corresponded to my CM. The next month, just before ovulation the reader for the Clearblue broke- it just kept giving me an error no matter what, and I know I was using it correctly. I switched to Wondfo’s the next month. On the Wondfo’s I can see that I actually only get one true day of +, my + is darker than the control line on Wondfo’s. My second day of ‘+’ that the Clearblue was giving me wasn’t a true positive, on Wondfo’s it’s only equal to the control line. So for me, the Wondfo’s helped me to pinpoint my ovulation more clearly than the Clearblue’s. (note:for most women a test line equal to the control is positive on Wondfo’s, I just have a strong surge) Plus, I’d never buy Clearblue again after the error issue- it’s only worth the money if I’m sure it’ll always work, and they don’t. I don’t find the Wondfo’s hard to read at all. Each cycle I tape mine all to a piece of paper with the date and time taken so that I can compare them and clearly see my surge. I’ve never had an issue.

    li612:  I agree with you. Because the wondfos are so cheap you can use them a couple times a day til you think it’s positive then confirm with a digital.
