EWCM Gone Before Ovulation?

Postby Theytellmeimold » Thu Apr 07, 2016 8:55 am

This is my second month charting. Last month didn't go well due to a cold and fever smack dab around ovulation.

Well, FF dropped the crosshairs on my chart this morning.... and I"m really sad. I thought I'd figured out our 'problem' that I was ovulating the day of my +OPK so we weren't timing sex right. According to my chart, I ovulate 2 days after +OPK which is what I'd assumed for the past two years and had timed sex accordingly. Plus, that means my EWCM dried up 2 days before ovulation! (I even check internally and it was just gone after the morning of the +OPK.) My breasts were very sore for two days and I thought it was the two days AFTER ovulation, but it appears it was the two days before ovulation. So I've been timing sex correctly for 2 years with no luck after all. Starting to wonder if this will ever happen. :(

I start Clomid on my next cycle and I've read that it dries up EWCM even more, and if mine is already drying up 2 days before ovulation, how will I ever get pregnant??

have you tried taking Geritol? It helps increase CM. Both my sister and I conceived within 2 months of using it.

Whoah, really? I'll need to look into that. I started taking Evening Primrose Oil two months ago and last month I had TONS of CM, but I also got sick right around ovulation so my temps were all over the place and I have no way of knowing if it was close to ovulation. This month, I drank tons of water and took EPO again and it dried up. I'm going to look into the Geritol! Thank you so much!

Did you take it with a prenatal vitamin?

I did take it with prenatals. I stopped once I got my BFP. The motto for it is "theres a baby at the bottom of every bottle." Definitely worth a shot!

I have like no cm. ever. We used preseed every month and four months after we started trying (after an ectopic) I am pregnant. I highly recommend it. Now I just hope this one is in the right spot. The worrying never stops!

Thanks, Nick02! I tried Preseed a few times 2 months ago but hadn't pinpointed my exact ovulation date yet. Now i think I have. Do you use the tool to 'insert' the Preseed? I read some places that some people just plop in on their man! ;) How much do you use? I also read not to use the recommended amount because it's way too much.

I guess the good news is that I have been charting and it appears that even though I've lost a tube, I'm still ovulating every month.

I also did some research into Geritol. People seem to think it's the iron that does it, but my prenatal from GNC has much more iron in it than Geritol. It may be the combination of vitamins used in Geritol that works so I'm going to try it anyway. I'll do anything at this point!

Evening primrose oil helped me with EWCM, just drink it at the right times.

How are things with you girls?
