Hi :) I hate being new, too. Especially to this board. I wish there was never anyone who had be to be new to this board. This is a great group of girls but crappy circumstance ya know?

Anyway, if you're not going to use OPK's I would have sex every other day from CD 8 to about 25 if you have no idea when you ovulate. Don't do it every day. You will burn out quick. OPK's are cheap and would lessen the number of times you have to have sex. Not that we don't all enjoy it sometimes but you don't want to be forced into doing it all the time. OPK's would help you to know when you are a couple days from ovulation so you know when to start and when you can stop!

If you need some info about the whole OPK process here is a great link that answered a lot of my questions when I first started.

If you think the lines on the tests will get confusing for you (they do for a lot of girls) you can get the digital ones off Ebay for really cheap! They just smile at you when they're +. They're awesome! If you feel like you want to try it, let me know and I will send you a link to some cheap ones.

Okay well read the site and decide whether you want to try the regular OPK's or if you want to use the digitals and I can send you a link :) You should test twice a day at first until you figure out when you usually ovulate so be prepared to use about 20 the first couple months. The regular OPK's are about $10 for 20 and the digitals are about $20 for 20.
