Has anyone used a saliva microscope? Is it worth it?


Shannon - April 29

Hi "L". I bought a slaiva Test a few months ago and I've stopped using it because I just couldn't make sense of it. One day I would have ferning then the next there would be nothing but dots. I could never see a pattern with it, and it just started frustrating me. I don't know about anyone else but I wish I didn't buy it. Hope this helps you!

It helps big time! THANKS!!

I tried it and got very frustrated with it as well. I only got air bubbles and couldn't tell with certainty what the result was. Very annoying.

My neighbor used it, and couldn't tell so she used OPK's as well (defeats the purpose), but she could only see it after she got a pos. on them and knew whatto look for after. I bought the Clear Blue Monitor- expensive, but so much easier than Opk's and saliva scope.

Stacey- how is the Clear Blue Monitor easier than OPK's? I've been thinking about getting one and I've seen them a bit cheaper on Ebay!

there is absolutely no guessing involved- the monitor tells you everything. You peeon a stick- their test stick, put it into the computer and it tells you if you are low, high, or peak- which would be like a pos line on an opk. I could never get the hang of the opk- is the line as dark etc. This tells me, so I don't have to guess. I remember once I was trying an OPK brand for the 1st time and wasn't sure- well it looks dark, but had to run to a neighbor to see if I was crazy. We both thought it was as dark as the test strip, but turns out, it was a fluke b/c next day was light again and no temp rise. So, I like that I know when to test - am only (before I was like, well, is it better in am- afternoon and I can't hold it for that long). I have also heard many good things about people conceiving while using these. I should have checked ebay- didn't even think of it!

Thanks for the info Stacey! I just might get one if this isn't THE month for me. I'm expecting AF in a week and will test then.
