Okay. So with this month being my first ever Clomid cycle, I was doing lots and lots of research before starting. Every site that I went to on google stated that Clomid will more than likely decrease CM. Well, apparently (TMI) I am in the minority because I have ALOT of it and it is extremely stretchy so it is definitely EWCM. With that being said, I am wondering if I am gearing up to O tomorrow or possible the next day? In your experience with EWCM, how soon after you noticed it did you ovulate?
Michelle - While I don't have any experience w/ Clomid, I can speak on my experiences w/ normal EWCM. I usually notice the most the day before, and the day of OV. I say that I'm pretty sure I OV b/c I usually have OV pains - but I don't temp, and this is my first month trying OPK. But not sure if the Clomid changes this.
EWCM is such a tricky thing eh? I've noticed that the past two months, I've barely had any! Which really really concerns me! I used to have a TON! I started taking a supplement two months ago that contains Vitex, Dong Quai, Red-Rasp Leaf, & Black Conhosh - so I wonder if that is making a difference? Thoughts anyone?
I've read that after noticing EWCM you will Ov 24-36 hrs after!! Sooo go catch that eggy
AFM nothing here not even a posituve opk ..NADA im thinking maybe the box i have is faulty even though the test line is there
I too don't have Clomid experience but I'd say the abundance of EWCM is great!!
Now I"m having what is a lot like EWCM but not quite. I've had fertile looking CM post O plenty of times before it's just nerve wracking.
TMarie - I haven't tried those supplements, but maybe you're just missing the CM by chance and it's still there? Do you do internal/cervical checks for it or just when you use the bathroom?
Tasha, I didn't get a positive OPK either. I tested late in the day on CD 9 and got a negative. I think I missed my surge by a day or two or the tests were faulty as you noted. I hope you catch that eggie anyway!
My CM has been making me wonder too. Despite a negative OPK on O day, all my other signs (temp, cm, cervix) say I O'd on CD 9 which is a three days after I started having EWCM. I started feeling like O was coming on just a day or two after AF ended and I thought I was nuts lol. CD 4 I had tons of cramps and yesterday I started having ewcm like CM that was tinged with pink/brown in the am so I'm hoping it's implantation and not me royally effing up my dates.
Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone!
I'm the same way... I notice more cm while on clomid! I usually notice EWCM about the day before o so go get it!

Mia - yes I do an internal check, and while it's very wet, I don't have any stickiness on my finger when I pull it out. I thought I read where EWCM will be on finger if you do internal check....hmmmm
You know what Nidia, I did notice the first month of taking Vitex (last month) that my CM became lighter. I just wasn't sure if it was from my supplement b/c it's only 800 mg (for 2 capsules) and there are 4 different herbs, not just Vitex - but then again, I guess all of the herbs could cause changes. The reason I started taking is b/c my LP was only 9-10 days, so I was trying to lengthen it - which I think it has helped a little, just 1 day, but still good!
