I was online last night looking at the diff kind of PT there are and I found a first response fertility test that you use on CD3 with FMU that tells you if this cycle will release a good egg or night. It test something in your pee that starts with a F sorry I can't remember what. Have any of you ladies heard of it or used it before.

Thanks KC

I'm not to worried about it as far as I know everything seems to work okay. i just thought it was neat they had a test over the counter you could buy. I think I may just try it since DH and I have been together two years and I have conceived yet.

There's definitely mixed reviews about the home test. If its something you're worried about ask your doc for cd3 b/w -that's when they test for fsh & other stuff too :)

That tests checks your follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels, which can indicate your ovarian reserve level. If your FSH is high, that means your ovaries are working harder to release a mature egg, which could indicate that your reserve quantity is low. I've seen mixed reviews on the test, a doctor's office would do the test by drawing blood so I guess I would question the accuracy. It might give you some peace of mind though.
