Clomid is notorious for drying up CM, especially in older women. If you continue to take it you might want to also take EPO (evening primrose oil capsules) from day 1 to O each cycle and I used preseed. (available via the internet and some pharmacies). Robitussin never worked that great for me.


Good luck and I hope this cycle ISN'T a bust!

I think this is not a one-size-fits all category, as EPO did nothing for me (took it for months).

Hi Amie, I went through my notes (I have lots in a word doc saved) and found some of the info I was referring to. I also re-checked on the green tea; it seems that lots of women swear by it but it has never been studied.

Hi Amie, and welcome to the board. I am 42 1/2 (since Paula started using 1/2 s I will too) and TTC#2 for two years with IUI (don't let my lousy stats discourage you). I think I read a post of yours somewhere else where you mention you ARE having IUI on Thursday? if that is the case, then you don't need CM because IUI puts sperm directly into the uterus, Cm just helps the swimmers travel.


I am also having an IUI on Thursday so we can be waiting buddies. GL!!!! It is too early to worry about the cycle being a bust -- especially since you have three follicles.
