clearblue easy fertiity monitor is it worth it?

Postby Corvina » Fri Jan 27, 2012 8:25 pm

after 3 years and no luck i'm at wits end and willing to try anything short of seeing a doctor just yet(i'm being stubborn i know) I figure if it doesnt happen this year then next year i will see a doctor.

but anyways, i'm considering investing in a clearblue easy fertility monitor, i'm wondering is it worth the money?

If you don't know exactly when you o then I think it is well worth the money! Why not if it might help you get your :bfp: ? It definitely won't cost as much as seeing a doctor. :) I use the Clearblue opk with the smiley face and love it. Good luck!!

Are you able to see when you O with OPKs and BBT? If so then no, it's a complete waste of money IMO. The sticks are expensive too and you'll have to keep buying them every 1-2 cycles... If you think your timing has been off then yes, go for it, but I would think after 3 years you've hit it around O enough.

I waited 3 years to see a doctor for fertility treatments too and I regret waiting so long. I know sometimes money can be an issue (our biggest), but at least get a SA for your husband! My RE charged us $75 for ours and we didn't even need to be a patient! Good luck! :D

I had no luck with my clearblue easy fertility monitor and I tried for 4 years using it when indicated ... it just cost me a lot of money.

Now I'm investigating the The OvaCue Fertility Monitor no consumables needed and it's natural but I can't find anyone who has tried and was successful.
