It couldn't have come at a better time, either, as I decided to start charting my basal body temperature this month too. I thought it would be interesting to see if they "match up", especially with how crazy my cycles can be. (Can we say 30-40 day cycles with no rhyme or reason?) I don't know if my thermometer is just not that reliable (my bet) or my body temperatures fluctuate a lot more than you would think, but I am a much bigger fan of the ovulation test strips so far. From my experience so far, they are more accurate and easier to interpret than charting temps.
Personally, I like the Easy@Home test strips better than the ones you find at the store too. Why? For one, you get a LOT more test strips for your money, which is especially convenient for me as I am not only trying to figure out when I am ovulating, but if I am at all. Therefore, instead of using them for the 5 or so days around your expected ovulation time, I have been using one each day since a few days after my last period ended. I would only be getting a handful of the amount of test strips for the same price at the store. Second, these test strips are small, as you can see in the pictures, so the optimal way to test is by peeing in a container first and dipping the test strip in for 3 seconds. I'm guessing a lot of you are like me and peeing in a cup isn't exactly your favorite thing to do...but it beats the nightmare of trying to hold a stick WHILE you're peeing. Also, since they are much smaller than store bought test kits, they take up less room in your cabinet. :)
Another added bonus of the Easy@Home Ovulation Test Kit is that you also get 20 pregnancy tests! It's pretty much one-stop shopping when it comes to getting pregnant. ha ha! But seriously, any woman who has ever been trying to get pregnant can tell you how expensive store bought pregnancy tests are and how quickly that expense can add up!
If you're thinking about having a baby in the near future (especially if you're not sure when you ovulate!), I highly recommend this product. You can find it on Amazon for just $21.99 right now!
