Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

As second pot of folic acid tablets gradually but surely dwindles (maybe I should find somewhere that stocks bigger pill packets?), and six months in I am getting impatient so going to splash out tomorrow on an OPK and hope it does the trick.
Any recommendations please? A friend of a friend recommended clearblue which she invested in because apparently she's not keen on sex and so was trying to minimise time engaged having to DTD (the information you get makes me laugh)
Much appreciated, as always

I use these from Amazon which work pretty well for me
I've also got the CBD (pink) ones to double check a line I'm not sure about but they were £20 when I bought them. Prices change so worth checking every now and again.
I've used these CBD advanced ones as well for the past few cycles but not entirely sure that they are any real benefit to me but I'll keep going with them. These were also £20 when I bought them

ahhh thanks Candy Apple. Going to give it 1/2 more weeks (when next AF is due) and the second it comes on, order the OPKs

I've only ever used the cheapies, the same as Candy Apple's amazon ones. This company sells both the opk & hpt's in sets of 5 & you can buy them in whatever quantity you want, I bought some of each with a bottle of pre seed. Never had a problem with them. www.ebay.co.uk/.../31012248995
These are also the ones that the nhs use so when I got my bfp last time & I convinced my gp to test me again she used 1 of these!

Thanks Blackkat - what's pre seed please?

pre seed is a pregnancy friendly lubricant that's supposed to help the sperm travel to where they need to be. I used it last time & got pregnant but don't know if it's a coincidence or not but I'm up for trying most things that might help. It's very good if you don't have much ewcm.
