Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Which should I use?

2 answers
So, I recently ended another period and I have hope that my cycle has returned to normal. So, my question is: should I calculate my ovulation time by using the ovulation testers by First Response or should I try to use the ovulation testers on this site?? Which would give me a more accurate reading and, if I do use the First Response ovulation testers, would it just pin-point my ovulation day or the day before and the day after? If it does not, then that would mean that I would have to have sex every day/night right?

I would use the First Response tests. An online calculator won't use your hormone levels like the First Response tests do. They test for a hormone that is responsible for making you release an egg. If I remember correctly, it shows up in your body about 2-3 days before the egg is released. It's been over a year since I used them though, so just make sure you read the instructions fully. 
Will do.  Thank you, V!
