has anyone ever bought those opk strips online? are they accurate? easy to use? there a re a few websites that sell the strips, and also the regular name brand cassette-type, with the strips being less expensive. the ones sold online are considerably less expensive than buying a kit in the store but i don't want to sacrifice quality and accuracy in order to save some $. anyone with insight on this? thanks!!

I would stick to the Clear Plan kit in the store. I bought some online tests and took them at the same time that I took the Clear Plan (I did not trust the inexpensive ones) and I never got a + on the ones that I bought online. The Clear Plan ones have given me a definite + all 3 cycles. It is well worth the $20 to not miss the egg!!

Hi- I use OPKs all the time- either CVS brand or Answer. I have had good luck with both and they have been accurate. This past month I ordered them from saveontests.com and never got a pos - I used Answer at the same time and I got a positive exactly on the right day. I would stick with the name brands. It is worth the money.

I have found the ones from testsforless.com to be accurate at least according to my temp. charting--they give me a + either the day before or early the morning of O, one time 2 nights before. And they're cheap. But everyone is different I guess.

Good luck!
