What is the best Ovualtion Test ?

Hello!

I just used the "Answer" pee on the stick one, lol! I tried it yesterday, which was 7 days after I started my period. I got the test line, but it was fainter than the reference line. Then I tried it today, and the line was even fainter!

So I am perplexed. Could I have already ovulated? Are these type tests unreliable? If so, what is the best one to buy to determine when I am ovualting? Right now, I have no idea.

Thank you!

I just read this article on the TTC after Miscarriage. It was very interesting and tells you which tests are reliable.

Sorry I don't know how to post it where you can just click on it and go there.

Thank you! I just looked on that board and wow, is it ever busy! Hopefully, I can get some more suggestions on better tests, or ideas of when ovualtion takes place. I always thought it was mid-cycle, but maybe it is sooner?

Yeah I've been learning a lot about the whole thing, too. These boards really help. I didn't know a lot about charting and OPK's. I did buy a Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor on Ebay. I get to try it out this month for the first time. It got good ratings in that article and it measures more than just the LH. I also bought some of the LH sticks too. So I can make sure I don't miss it! Got my fingers crossed.

Lots of baby dust to you,
