Hey Bees! I have a bit of a personal question…how accurate are those ovulation tests? My huaband and I are TTC!
I have a smart phone app downloaded too to track my period and fertile days…but again, I have no idea how accurate it all is!
Thanks for your input! 🙂

Better than nothing, but not 100% accurate. The app is the least accurate as it bases info off averages, not your own personal body and what it does.
OPK’s measure the hormone you release a day or so before ovulation, but it’s not confirmation that you did ovulate. You need to chart/temp to verify that ovulation actually happened.

@nerdwife12: According to this article, very accurate.
And I know that this may incite fury amongst the charters, but she says OPK are more accurate than temping… ..I’m cringing even writing that….

@nerdwife12: They never ever worked for me. Even while I was charting I never testing positive and I was clearly ovulating (and even got pregnant!)

Nothing is 100% accurate. I would say it really depends on the accuracy of your data-entry. If you’re not vigilant on your temping (take it at different times/skip days) & aren’t good at identifying your CM, it’s obviously not going to be as effective.
I still think charting is more useful than OPK’s.

I used clearblue easy ovulation kit where there is a flashing smiley and solid smiley face. I got pregnant on my 2nd cycle (which unfortunately ended in MC) and used again and I’m now 4 weeks on my very next cycle! (crossing my fingers this one sticks!)
So I would say it definitely works!

I had a positive result from one two days ago and judging by my CM it seemed to be accurate. We’ll see though.
