The reason grapefruit juice is used for EWCM is because it increases your estrogen, which helps you produce EWCM, helps your follicle grow, and helps build your uterine lining. You would want to start this around CD9/10 and stop once O happens.

I have found that eating the whole grapefruit instead of drinking the juice works better, also pomegranate juice will do the same thing.

Maddy - what about if you are on Clomid? What will help then? I always get "dry'" with clomid?

Sorry Apples, Im just now seeing this. I think that either could help as long as your estrogen receptors have not been blocked from the clomid.
