    I've used the one step opk tests for nearly 2 years and have always found them reliable. I normally test mid morning and late afternoon so I don't miss the surge :)

    20 is the lowest I could find and the one step gave me good lines. 25 was awful for me.

    I use one step too (dont know what sensitivity they are) but I have never had a problem getting a strong line or detecting the surge.

    Thanks ladies. Seems like there is a problem with me not the tests then. Got a positive last cycle but this time around I'm on CD35 and still nothing. I really should just expect AF now as it was this day last cycle. I must just be different

    Hahaha yes Russellmuscle, but did you know it's because a male cats penis has a hook or barb on it so sex is very painful (if you've ever heard cats mating it's horrific), thats what triggers ovulation, think I'll just stick the human way pmsl �� xx

    I use the one step. They are currently working fab for me, but the first batch I bought was either faulty or I never seemed to OV(or I missed it). I test several times a day now and the last 3 months I've not missed LH surge which has been fantastic :) xx
