Ineffective and faulty ovulation tests
I purchased these ovulation test strips after using them and the HPTs to conceive my first child several years ago. However, the quality has definitely gone downhill. The first batch I received had several damaged tests that were unable to be used, meaning I ran out of tests mid-cycle. I contacted the company and they sent my full order again. I was very pleased with the service at the time, however after using the replacement strips I have to say I think the quality of the product is poor. I followed the instructions exactly and tested 3 times...a day throughout my cycle but got absolutely nothing. Not even a faint line. I was confused as I had been tracking my cycle for several months using other methods too and was sure I’m ovulating. I ended up purchasing 2 other brands to compare over a few days (same sensitivity level). Using the same urine sample I got very clear positive results on the other tests and nothing on these. Don’t waste your money or your time.

DO NOT BUY THESE
These ovulation tests are not worth buying, don’t waste your money. They never picked up any LH levels for me when other tests did. I was confused why there was not even a faint second line, so I used another brand and the same urine samples together with the fertility2family test to check the accuracy. The other brand picked up LH levels and these tests did not. Customer service is absolutely awful and they were extremely rude, they refuse to give me a refund claiming that there is no issues with their product. They suggested I should just use...another method of tracking my cycle or see my GP, trying to make out it was a problem with me not the tests. I asked for the contact details of the manager/owner so that I could resolve this but they have since ignored my emails. Do NOT trust these products or this company.

Don’t waste your money!
- No instruction slip comes with the product, besides a very nondescript image on the individual sachets (why?)
- Don’t bother wasting your money, all of the tests were invalid! No second line, not even a faint one on any day.
I wanted to check to make sure I was giving them a fair shot, so I tested a different brand with the same pee sample from CD13-15 (testing twice a day). Got a clear positive on the other brand on CD 14, but NOTHING on these ones.
Not worth the free shipping.

All negative/invalid tests
I swapped to this brand from an eBay brand to get the bundle with the thermometer.
I’ve been testing 2 times a day from cd8, now on cd18 and these tests has shown NO test line what so ever. I have a dr appointment in two days to confirm ovulation but disappointed every test was showing no lh surge what so ever when I regularly ovulate around day 14.

Not the greatest
I have been using these tests for 2 months now and I’m just not really impressed. I bought another brand off eBay and have been using both and the eBay tests are so much clearer to read and seem to match up with the results on my Clearblue test. Sometimes I can’t even see a slight second line on these ovulation tests. I won’t be purchasing again but I’m glad so many others have had success. The green line is the Fertility2family tests and the blue is the eBay ones.

I bought a batch of 50 ovulation strips and almost every single one has come back invalid - regardless of how carefully tested each time. Most looked damaged before testing also.

I've used these in the past and conceived. After purchasing a batch of 200 strips this year there were some issues but generally they do work and are much cheaper than what is offered at the chemist for the same level of quality.

Faint results when doctor confirmed ovulation
I almost missed my fertile window because of how light these tests are. I only got a positive result with my FMU even though the instructions say to use later ones. My doctor later confirmed my ovulation.

Not "chemist quality" as they state
When I was running out of time to get ovualtion tests, I was relieved when I found a local supplier who claimed to have the same quality as what I would find in a chemist. unfortunately, I believed the claims and purchased 100 ovulation tests aswell as some pregnancy tests. How disappointed I was when they arrived and they were identical to the internet cheapies I got from ebay (which funnily enough I have the same complaint for that product as here). Not once did they detect my LH surge... due to post delays I had to make due for 4 months wit...h these. Missed fertile period for all of them. Today I received a positive reading on 2 other brands of opks. One from a chemist ( which according to them is the same quality) and my usual opks I get from ebay. But ofcourse this brand was no where near positive. Not even close. Do not waste your money on these.

Crappy tests don't work - bad customer service
I deeply regret buying these awful tests. These tests do NOT work for me. The first cycle I used them, the test line was so faint the whole time. I have a very regular cycle so I know roughly when I ovulate but the colour didn't even get remotely dark. I missed my fertile window because of these horrible tests when time is of the essence. The next month, as an experiment, I bought Ovuplan tests and used both tests at the same time with the same urine. Guess what? The Ovuplan ones went dark while Fertility2Family did not!
The other stupid thing ...
Purchased in July 2019.
Used the ovulation tests for approx 3 months and always was very accurate. Was easy to see a positive from a negative. Good instructions that can easily be accessed. Great customer service!

Affordable and Accurate
Quick shipping and it was discreet. It gave me a great progression line and it was obvious as I was approaching ovulation. Due to the economical pricing, I was able to test twice a day when approaching ovulation and was almost successful in getting a peak reading (mine wasn't a dye stealer) but it was close enough.
Thanks to these, I can now know that I do indeed ovulate despite being a bit older.

Quick and affordable
Thankyou for making such an easily available and affordable product!
It had made this journey so much easier and affordable knowing there are cheaper options that are just as effective available. Shipping is super fast and discreet which is appreciated also!

My new favourite test
I got recommended these in a Facebook group. I am a POAS addict so anything to save some money while trying to get pregnant. I brought one of the packs which came with ovulation, pregnancy tests and BBT. The tests and instructions were sure easy to use. The strips were fiddler than the normal FRER I use but for 50 tests for the price of 5 I can’t complain.

Cannot beat the price
These work well, they’re a touch more difficult to use than big-brand ones. But for the few extra steps and reading the instructions you cannot beat the price. The results are just as accurate.

Fast delivery and a great product
I use the product every month and it’s simple and easy to use. Instructions are very clear. The results were very accurate every time. Not one faulty product. Will buy again

Will be buying again
Iv used this product the past two ovulations and they are just as easy to read as the more expensive store brought ones. I recommend these to anyone in the same boat that's trying to conceive. After 6 months of trying im glad iv found these affordable ones.
