    Default Let's talk CM

    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 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!

    Thanks for all the reply's Well EWCM is gone today, so we will see what happens. Gina, how do you feel on Clomid when you ovulate, can you tell that you are ovulating (I.e do you get pains?)

    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

    TMarie1016, Vitex can cause changes in cm.. and can also change the day you o. it's bc it's working on regulating cycles.

    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!
