Ovulation Predictor Kits

Can anyone help me. I have just purchased an Ovulite OPK (the saliva one) and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. My problem is I keep getting bubbles in my saliva which then does not give me a clear reading. I was wondering if anyone had used one of these kits before and had any ideas or suggestions on how to limit them or how you manage to get clear readings. This OPK has turned out not to be as easy as I first thought.

I had the same problem and I just gave up.

Erin, are you using any other opk's or just monitoring your body signals?

i used the urine one this cycle... it was easy... showed up a surge day before ovulation... matched up with my last cycle where i ovulated (by checking mucous, which i didn't have much of) on the 13th day, then period 14 days later... which makes me 'normal' whatever that is... apparently the amount of time to ovulation can vary, but the time from ovulation (in my case 14 days) to your period is ALWAYS the same every cycle...

Hi J. I bought some opk test strips on-line at www.at-home-pregnancy-tests.com (keep the hyphens between the words, take out any others that might appear). You just pee in a cup, then dip the stick for 5 seconds. Very easy to use, and very accurate. I've been using them since September and the've been right on the money every time! And they are OH SO CHEAP!! They usually arrive in the mail in 3 days. Good luck!

Mulgajill, Which unrine opk did you use?

i used fortel... which is made usa but probably marketed under a different name here. It is one that gives you NO line until the surge takes place... others give you a faint line and you have to wait for a darker one (i have problems with faint lines.... bad hpt experiences). :-)

I'm doing both. I have been using the clear blue easy OPK and I don't really like it. It's not so clear to me.

J- try using the urine ovulation predictors- I ordered some from pregnancy-calculator.com and they are cheap and came quickly--I had my LH surge on 3/9/05 and it was a very clear, dark line. Then I did one yesterday, 3/10/05 and it was there still but not as dark. I would recommend those, I hope this helps.Good luck!
