    Soooo expensive!! I would never pay that much, even though they’re easier.

    This cycle I ended up getting both, and I think the cheapies worked just as well and well….so much cheaper! If I were you I would at least try the cheapies first and see if they seem to work find for you

    i voted no and to stick with the cheapies only because i go through a ton of OPK’s every month and the digital’s would add up fast. i haven’t had trouble reading the wondfo’s.

    I only used the digitals the first month I started using OPKs.  I wasn’t sure if my cheapie was a true positive, so I confirmed with the digital.  You could always do that, but I don’t think I would use the digitals every time because they are so expensive!

    I got a digital FRER only when I tested postive with a very light line very early on the cheapies and I wanted to confirm.

    I bought 100 wondfo opk’s for under $10 off of amazon and during my fertile window I didn’t feel guilty about testing 3 times a day! I wouldn’t bother with the digitals unless you want to confirm!

    I use the cheapies, but confirm with digi’s… only because one of my favorite bee’s passed them down to me 🙂

    @BalticBee:  They don’t work for me unless I time it exactly right (which never happens.)  I know I ovulate but per the OPKs I have taken, I don’t get positive tests.  Use the cheapy ones so you can test multiple times a day.

    I think they are when you are first starting out.

    I voted yes, because I find it impossible to read the cheapies
