If I am not pregnant this month I am thinking of trying an ovulation predictor kit. I am wondering if anyone has had success with one, or how anyones found it to work. Thanks alot!

I used them. I got them pretty cheap from Buy a lot because you will probably need them. I used them for about 4 months when I was ttc and it really did make it easier for me to pinpoint ovulation. I actually found out that I was ovulating much later than I thought. I had 26 day cycles, which should put ovulation around day 12, but in reality I was ovulating around day 16 - 18. One thing I learned though, is that when you are getting closer to ovulation it is a good idea to test twice a day. It is easy to miss the surge because sometimes it only lasts a few hours. Near ovulation I would test at about noon and 5 pm. Also, remember that the test line needs to be DARK. Many people see that second line and think they are about to ovulate, but I got faint lines for a few days leading up to the surge. When the test line is as dark or darker than the control line, it means you will ovulate in the next 12 - 36 hours. If it doesn't work for you the first month, don't give up. Keep using them. It took me six months with perfect timing before I got pregnant. Some people just take longer than others. Good luck!

I had sucess both times conceiving using a predictor kit. It works the same as a home pregnancy test, where you hold the stick in your pee stream and wait for the result to show up. Just read the directions.

I have been wondering how they work, not for myself, but for my best friend. She's been ttc after a m/c last Dec. I personally think she may have the same situation as Deb, but I don't know. I do have a client who used them and got pg. in 2mo. I just wish that I could help my friend as she is getting discouraged, and I feel bad because here I am 30wks. pg and I only tried once. Good luck ladies.

Hi: I also got mine from because my cycles were very irregular after coming off the pill and I was eager to get pg asap. I got pg after my second ovulation.
