Should you rely on ovulation predictor kits when you’re trying to conceive? Find out in today’s episode of the 2021 summer replay series!

In this solo episode, I am tackling the topic of Ovulation Predictor Kits! I talk about OPKs and why I don’t think they are all they’re cracked up to be. I share why relying solely on OPKs can reduce your chances of conception in some cases, and why your body gives you much more reliable signs to go on when you pay attention to it!
