Would You Take an Over-the-Counter Fertility Test?

Aspiring mamas use everything from
ovulation predictors to thermometers to IVF to assist in their quest of getting pregnant. But, a new over-the-counter fertility test allows women to see if they are equipped for creating a baby.

Specific instructions must be followed in conducting the test to get an accurate result. We're so curious about this item that we will be testing it out and posting the results on lilsugar. But, we're curious – would you purchase it for fertility knowledge and family planning reasons?

If you really want to take charge of your fertility and know for sure when you are fertile, it is more accurate and cheaper to chart your basal temperatures and cervical fluid. There are lots of books and websites about this and you will never have to leave it to chance or waste money on so-called fertility tests.
