OPK Choices: Urine vs Saliva?

Postby stefknow » Tue May 26, 2015 12:29 pm

Hi ladies,

I know it might be a really common question, but after doing some researches I think I need some real suggestions from you.
There are two kinds of OPKs: urine testers and saliva testers.
Can any of you tell which one is better? What are the pros and cons of each? What brands do you recommend?

Most of the people TTC I know are using CB's urine testers, but I also find a couple articles saying that saliva ovulation monitors are more accurate...brands like Knowhen http://www.knowhen.com/ and Fertile-focus http://www.fertile-focus.con look really advanced.

I am a little confused. Should I go for a new option? Anyone has any experience?? Any comment is welcome! Thank you and good luck to everyone :D

I used the Fertile Focus for a while, and while it was really interesting to see the ferning patterns, it can be easily skewed by other factors. It was a little hard for me to interpret the results. I'm a big fan of pee OPKs, they've always been very accurate for me in the past, especially when paired with charting/CM checking
