I’ve never used digital but I recommend the Pregmate brand if you are interested in LH strips. They are super cheap and I’ve never had any issues with them. In my opinion I think they work just as well as digital but will save you some money especially if you like to test often.

I’ve used both and didnt find a difference in sensitivity. The digitals just take the guesswork away but even with the cheapie I always got clear positives.

When i used the digital for the first time I used a cheapie as well and the results were the same.

I was given the digitals by the fertility clinic (for “free” included in cost of treatment) but if I had to pay out of pocket I’d go with cheapies

[email protected] are available in Canada on Amazon and have great reviews. 4.5 stars from almost 40,000 reviews. I’ve used them myself many times and they give clear positives. I have PCOS and don’t ovulate regularly and they’ve still been reliable.

I have a mild case of PCOS according to my doctor. I tried [email protected] OPK, MOMMED and ClearBlue Digital OPK and they have all came out positive on predicted fertile window. But we missed our window last cycle because we were renovating frown

I also recommend the Pregmate brand as they are very inexpensive and did what I needed them to to get my BFP. It took my husband and I about 2.5 years to conceive and there is just no way I would have spent the kind of money digital OPK tests costs for that amount of time – when they are really doing the same thing.

100% the cheapies paired with the Premom app. You snap a picture and it detects the strength of the line/peak for you. I liked being able to see the darkness of the line versus wondering what it was that prompted a flashing/solid smiley.

I would try out the cheapies first and see if you like them. I also was charting on Clue app and noticed the cheapies showed that my cycle was actually two days off according to the app. Just to be sure, we did the baby dance every day in a row for like a week lol. So I think as long as you don’t have any medical issues and you have an idea when you’re ovulating, there’s no real need for a fancy opk.

Totally anecdotal evidence, but I didn’t want to mess around with trying to read things, so I used the digital. I got pregnant shortly after starting to use them, after trying for awhile (twice–I miscarried once.)
