@Evie19:  If you’re worried about this, why not try using Pre-Seed? It’s a lubricant that is sperm safe and mimicks EWCM. I have it, and I’ll say that I don’t think it’s exactly EWCM-like, but it seems pretty close. 

 

You can use it like a regular lube or you can use the applicators to make sure it’s right by your cervix. 

 

I just bought it and did a fair bit of shopping around because it’s expensive for the little tube. But Target was cheapest (beat Amazon) at $19.99. 

 

 

 

Good luck! FX this is your cycle!

ETA: I’ve also heard of bees taking Mucinex to boost CM too, but I’ve never done it and I don’t remember how early you’re supposed to start in the cycle.

@Evie19:  I know it sounds crazy but I’ve heard of people using actual egg whites! I think if I were to try it I’d wash the whole egg really well before cracking or buy the pasteurized egg whites in a carton so I wouldn’t get salmonella, but it might be worth looking into if you can’t get anything locally…

@lazybee123:  I’ve also heard of this. I’m sure it’s relatively harmless, but it definitely does have a weirdness factor to it, doesn’t it? I’m not sure I’d even tell DH if I decided to try it! haha

Are you sure you dont have a minor yeast infection from clomid? That’s what happened to me. The next month it was like WOAH on the uh wetness factor. Good luck.

I caught mine before I was even done with my clomid and just used the OTC monistat and was good by O time. If you aren’t sure though def talk to your doctor. It will depend on how you feel if you want to try and what your dr says. 🙁 I’m sorry but I hope you feel better ASAP. Clomid is no fun but it will be worth the struggle in the end.

Do you know when you normally O? Id always o a bit later around cd16-18 so had no problems. If you aren’t doing any kind of charting I’d strongly suggest it with clomid. That way you know you did everything possible. 🙂 if you are just try and bd the few days before. Usually within a day or so of meds you should start feeling better. Sending you good luck vibes so you don’t have to take any more doses of clomid!
