Trying to Conceive: Experiencing Cervical Mucus Changes While Taking Clomid

I am using Clomid and I appeared to ovulate really early. My first temperature dip this month was on day eight! Can I have what looks like fertile, stretchy cervical mucus after I've ovulated?

Question:

Fertile cervical mucus, also called peak mucus, is clear, thin and stetchy. After ovulation, progesterone abruptly suppresses the peak mucus and the mucus pattern continues with sticky mucus for a day or two, and then returns to dryness.

Whenever there is sufficient follicle development to raise the estrogen above a threshold, some mucus can be found at the outside of the vagina. If there is no continued follicle growth, the mucus is sticky, pasty and does not change over a period of days to the more slippery, stretchy and clear mucus.

Clomid changes cervical mucus patterns on an individual basis, so you might have to get used to a new pattern in terms of buildup of mucus and interpretations of peak mucus. You may want to visit the Billings web site. I recommend that you contact one of the centers as I have great confidence in their ability to interpret fertility signs and charts. Let them help guide you in this process.

I hope your dream comes true very soon.
