Babi OPK

I am debating between the Babi and Wondfo cheapies....so far, I have used the "Answer" OPK brand, but I'd like to test 2x/day and using Answer OPK, things will get pricey quickly. Anyone have any thoughts about Babi? I haven't heard much about them and lots about Wondfo. On the opposite end of the spectrum, also debating the Clearblue Easy fertility monitor...is it worth the 200$?

Thanks all!

    I use the clear blue easy smiley face and love them. I get the 20 pack and typically test three trees per day

    The monitor is worth it. I got pregnant 3 years ago on my first month using it. The lined opks confuse me. I also have used the clear blue with the smile and they are great as well. I was able to sell my monitor for half the price I paid for it so keep that in mind.

    I have not heard of the Babi. I used the Wondfos and liked them a lot. I also used the Smileys. I would use the wondfos allllll the time and then around CD 10 or 11, I'd do one or two smileys a day. I always bought the 20 pack. You can find them online for around $35, which I thought was ok.

    Thanks for the info, I am thinking more and more about combining either wondfos and smileys or wondfos and the fertility monitor. I also use the Glow app on iPhone, which gives percentages of most fertile days based on BBT and other factors....so far it's seemed fairly accurate! :)

    Hello, for a few cycles (because I am obsessive), I used wondfos, smileys (the ten day with the flashy smile option, and first response (the box of 20). Sometimes they all lined up and I would get positives on all of them at the same time. Other times, I would get 2 out of 3 positive or one out of three and it drove me a little mad! So based on my experience, I would recommend wondfos because they are super cheap (just bought 100 for 33 dollars) and the clear blue smile ones for back up.

    However, if I had to do it all over again, I would go with wondfos and the fertility monitor because buying the clear blue alone are expensive and I have already exceeded the cost of the fertility monitor just in a few short months (but I live in a large city and have not shopped the clear blue online).

    i have used the babi type ovulation test before. I used them with wondfos. and smiles. I found that babi product had better control line color than wondfos, when it came out to be positive, along with a positive smile test from same urine sample. I mean both are great products, but I found the babi product better easier to read and more sensitive, and cheaper.

    Thanks for all the input! I really appreciate it. :) I do think with these thoughts I will do a combination of babi or wondfos and the monitor..(I'm a little obsessive too!) I sometimes feel like in the TTC world we can all do as much tracking/checking as possible and in the end it all boils down to the perfect second..such is life! :-)
