I used the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor with pee sticks and really liked it. I was wrong about my 'O" dates until I used this. The sticks are a little expensive, about $50 a box. I haven't used the other two products so I don't know how they work.

I used the CB monitor and it worked to help me conceive dd, but it stopped working when I was ttc #2. It would never detect O and never gave me a "high" reading, even though my temp and chart were confirming O. I've heard that can happen to some women who are a bit "ahem" older when they are ttc.

GL to you!

UGH!!! I have done it all. The monitor, the saliva the OPK's and the Charting. The most accurate for me is charting and the the OPK's. I have gotten so good at charting I really don't even need the OPK's. I honestly thought the monitor was a giant waste of money.
