Hi Fellow TTCers,
I bought a box of Wondfo OPK’s on Amazon last month but haven’t opened it yet. I’m hesitant to use them because of all the posts I read about how confusing they are to read and how sometimes they are not accurate (see Amazon reviews). And yet, they’re so much cheaper than the Clearblue Advanced Digital OPK’s (with the smiley faces).
In your opinion, should I return the Wondfo’s and just spend more money on the Clearblue’s (and save myself the headaches from trying to read them)? Or should I keep them and use them liberally because they are inexpensive?
If anyone has any experience with either, I’d love to hear about it.

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 bought a bunch of the wondfo ones and then a box of the clearblue ones to use when i think i have a positive (to double check). this is my first cycle off bc though so idk
ETA: i’m talking about the smiley face ones, not the ones you use with the machine

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.
