    Anyone active from Australia?

    Hi All,

    I am still in the planning stages to sway blue. Where did you buy the ovulation kits from?

    eBay has a few in bulk but not sure if they are good enough. I have tried Clear blue from the local chemists in the past but looking for options as I will have to track it for a few months before TTC. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    Hi boydream! Ovuplan from chemist warehouse are really good opks. The dye is waaaay better than the first response dip tests and much cheaper too. The kit comes with 10 test strips, sample containers and floats (this particular brand you leave floating in sample) plus a hpt (their hpts aren't the greatest, frers are the best early detection tests) Just remember with the dip tests that testing between 1-3pm is generally the best time but you could test again between 6-8pm if your earlier test was really close to pos. Also limit fluids and try hold for 2 hours or so before testing.

    Will post a link but also a pic in case the link doesn't work

    Good luck!

    Hi there, I am in the process of my 2nd sway and I live in Australia. I have always used the ebay ones and I personally found them great. They showed a reliable rise and fall of my ovulation and it made it easy for me to track. Not all ladies like them, but they definitely worked for me. Here is the link to the specific ones that I bought from within Australia. They also come with urine cups which is also handy and makes the process easy - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/50x-Ovul...805ce45&_uhb=1

    Goodluck with your sway xo

    Thanks missiz. This is definitely a cheaper option. I will give this a go since I have to track for a few months before TTC.

    Good luck with your second sway!

    Few more questions on the supplements as I am preparing a shopping list.

    Is Elevit equivalent to womenís one a day?
    Which brand is good for Folate?
    Which brand is good for probiotics?
    Where did you buy Robitussin or Mucinex?
    I didnít find Menís 50 plus equivalent.Any suggestions?

    Hi Boydream!

    I got my Preseed from Chemist warehouse but do they still sell it? Not sure, I would have bought it 18+ months ago.
    First response - what product are you referring to? Hpt, opk?

    Glad to see an active Aussie blue swayer - not that many of us here!

    Our sway didnít work for #3 & we had a little oops for #4 but we love them all to bits... not sure if we ever will but somehow hoping we might add blue to the crew, to complete our family, one day...

    Fingers crossed for TTC #5 in July/August 2023!
