Most Popular Fertility Products for Him, Her, and Every Budget

Most Popular Fertility Products for Him, Her, and Every Budget via Babble.comOnce you’ve decided to become pregnant or try to avoid pregnancy through a more natural method (FAM or NFP), one of the first things you’ll need to decide are which products to use to help with either.

Most everyone knows about OPK’s (Ovulation Prediction Kits), which are usually sticks that work like a pregnancy test. They track your LH surge, and that lets you know when you are about to ovulate and therefore your most fertile days in a cycle. The stick gets darker with an LH surge, but often these are hard to figure out and annoying to read accurately. They can also be very expensive over a long period of tracking.

But in looking around for other options, I found some interesting ones that might not be as well known. I’ve put together a list of the most popular products that are on the market. They range from $5 to $500 (yes, really!), and include ones for both her and him in the fertility process.

Which is right for you? Click through to read a little about each, see the price range, and find out what other products alongside OPK’s could be used to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
