Trying to conceive

My new purple CBD OPKs arrived today which should be done with FMU. Fine, not a problem.
Now I'm wondering, would it be totally overkill and obsessive to continue to do my normal ic OPKs in the evening after work as well as the CBD ones in the morning? I feel the need to test the tests IYKWIM? Its not that I don't trust the CBD's but I feel like I'd like to double check them with my normal method.
What do you think - I am I actually going off my head now??? Be honest!!!!

It is exactly what I would do too. Ha!

I would go with the CBD, it's a more advanced and accurate hormone test. You could do both but i think it'd be a waste of time tbh.

continue being crazy 1 - 1 be sensible
anyone else???? lol

I’d do both for 1 cycle. If they agree drop the IC’s!

I'm having the opposite thoughts!
Got some ICs & not sure if a) they aren't working, b) I'm not ovulating or c) my surge isn't strong enough/lasting long enough for them to detect it.
As I'm doing them daily I can't justify the cost of the CBD ones!
We are just DTD like mad in the hope that it's a or c above!

If you already have them then why not! however agree about not being able to interpret ICs cos mine didnt look darker than control line but clearblue was positive.

I would do both to use up your stash of ic and then see how you go - if you still feel you need them after they're finished I don't see the harm but you may trust the cb by then.

I heard you should do OPK's in the afternoon because you might miss your peak?
But then, I know absolutely Eff all about all this!

Use up your ic stash. By the time you've run out you'll be more confident in the abilities of the CBD.

I think I'll do both for the first cycle to see how it goes.
Rod - it normally is later in the day that you would do OPKs but these CBD ones also detect estrogen as well as LH and they say use FMU?? Its all v confusing but hey ho.
