    I went ahead and bought some IC OPKs - I must admit, I wasn't expecting them to be so small!

    Does everyone follow the instructions properly?? As in, peeing into a pot and waiting 30 mins before dipping? How do you manage when you're doing it during the day? I thought I'd be able to do it at work, but not sure I can get away with all that!

    Interested to hear how you all manage it..

    I don't wait, mine don't say to, they just say dip and wait for result.

    Mostly I abide by that rule yeah. Unfortunately it just means that I don't always get to do 2 a day. Sorry that that isn't much help! I definitely would not be able to do it at work either!

    I never waited, I dipped straight away and i don't think it effected the result as I got a clear positive - I think you do have to wait 5-10 minutes for a clear result though xx

    Thank you. Maybe I can get away with it at work then if I can sneak the pot in and out.

    Is there a time of day when it's too late to do it? Could I wait until I got home at 5pm?

    I get my best results between 4-6pm. Everyone is different though, you may find yours is a different time.

    Mine have the same instructions but I never wait to dip and always get clear positives. I'm sure 5pm will be fine, I've done mine between 12 midday and 9pm.
