    I started taking EPO last cycle as I get very little CM. Last month I started taking 1000 mg/day and I noticed a slight increase. This cycle I have increased it to 2000 mg/day as I read that to increase CM it should be around 3000 mg/day taken? I have just finished AF yesterday and today have been wet all day! My CM is slippery/opaque,creamy and there is tons when I wipe.

    Could this simply be down to EPO - should I decrease the amount I am taking?

    I have been taking 3000mg this cycle and have had the same thing. As soon as AF left I have had bucketloads of EWCM. A bit too much I'd say! I was gobsmacked and have lowered it to 2000mg x

    Sorry ladies - are you continuing to take after O? Not safe for luteal phase.

    yeah, its only to be taken UNTIL ovulation...then started back up again if af shows.

    I took EPO this cycle as well but tho i did see an increase in cm...i did not notice an increase in ewcm..this cycle anyway. tho since i stopped taking it after ovulation, i have noticed an even more increase in cm! holy cow lol

    I have started taking 2000mg from this cycle. AF finished on Saturday and since Monday I have noticed more CM than usual! Its not EWCM yet but hopefully it will be over the weekend when I think I am due to O! I’m only taking it from CD1 to O.
