    I use 20 but I don't have high levels of LH (which is common in pco ladies). Do you often have problems with getting lots of positive tests even when you aren't ovulating? If so go for the 30.

    So are opk like pregnancy tests
    so lower the number the less lh you have?
    If positive on a 30/40 one that's like a defo on a 20?

    Confused

    Yes, the higher the number the less sensitive they are. So some pco ladies have high lh levels and would always read positive on the 20s. As you sound like me the 20s are fine.
