Since I had to have a D&C for my m/c....I am just not sure how my body is going to O, on same schedule as before or not? So, I decided to get an OPK....which is better Clear Blue Easy ot First Response?

I picked those two, because they will give me an easy ":0)" or a "yes" for a 24 hour window to O.....

Thanks for the info...it's very helpful!!

See? I knew how my cycle was (every 21 days) and I had a good indicator of when I o'd by CM....I didn't feel I needed to chart or do temps & I was blessed enough to get pg. 1st month we TTC, but dut to m/c & D&C, I just don't know how my cycle will be affected?

I find the CBEFM (fertility monitor) very easy to use.

When I'm not doing a monitored cycle, I use the Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor (CBEFM).
