    I ovulated both times on Day 12 which is early for me. (Usually on Day 14) I took Clomid both times on days 3-7. Honestly, I can’t remember how my EWCM was on Clomid. I do remember I had less and was taking mucinex and we used preseed to try to help.

    I took Clomid on Days 3-7. My three Clomid cycles went as follows:

    Cycle 1
    50 mgs
    O on CD 16

    Cycle 2
    50 mgs
    O on CD 21

    Cycle 3
    100 mgs
    O on CD 19 

    YES, Clomid can dry you out! I didn’t expereince this myself, but I know a lot of the others I’ve talked to have had this problem. I would definitely advise OPKs during Clomid cycles so you know how to time your intercourse.

    My personal experience on Clomid (sorry if this is TMI), is that I have creamy/sticky CM during my infertile times at the beginning and end of a cycle, yellow EWCM starting 5-6 days before O, clear EWCM 1-3 days before O. As for unmedicated cycles, I don’t O without medication, typically, and my CM during an anovulatory cycle has no pattern at all.

    Yes it can dry you up completely.  My doctor said to start taking an OPK 7 3 days after I stopped Clomid.

    I did Clomid CD3-7 and ovulated on 14 twice, and 12 once.

    I would bet that you already have ovulated…

    @babymakes3:  I was seeing a regular ob/gyn instead of a fertility doctor or RE and she thought that getting me to ovulate earlier would increase our chances, I think. CD21 was too late an O for her taste. When 100mgs only made me O a couple days sooner, I was pissed because I had really bad side effects on Clomid (headaches, hot flashes, insomnia and ovary pain).

    I don’t think it’s been mentioned on these boards before, but Clomid can stay in your system for awhile, which is part of the reason the doctors won’t let you do more than 3-6 cycles on it w/out a break. The next cycle after these three I went unmedicated, but I had all the same side effects and symptoms and Oed on CD24.

    Hope that helps!  Good luck! 🙂
