    Before my MC I used to have copious amount of CM throughout the cycle including EWCM, but the past few months after MC I've been unusually dry with only a litte EWCM around ovulation. I started on EPO and Robitussum, but couldn't really tell how much it helped. Has anyone else noted changes in CM after their MC? I guess it has me worried b/c I got pregnant first month TTC, but its been four months now after MC and I feel like I'm less fertile. I also turned 35, but I didn't think it was like a magic number or anything.

    I do think mine has changed as well, but this is only my 1st cycle after m/c. I do also know that as we get older that is starts to decrease but it shouldn't be that quick. I think our bodies just need some time to get back on track.

    I'm on my third cycle after mc and mine is also just as you describe but don't know any medical reason why. ps - also 35 and feeling like its this big number people keep throwing at you when it just isn't happening.

    I have the same problem. I had a mmc may last year and my cm as never been the same. Doctors dont seem to listen, but finaly after 8 cycles my GP has refered me to a specialised and also done some blood work to. Can I just ask, as you periods returned back to normal?

    My cycles also got a couple days shorter after mc (31 days to 29) but were regular.
    I started taking EPO, vitamin C, grapeseed, and robitussin and maybe that did the trick because I got my BFP. So maybe its worth a try if you gals are still having trouble with cm. I'm still interested if anyone finds out a reason why your cm would change after mc.

    After my first MC (D&C) I think mine became "hostile" and I had no luck for over half a year. (The first time, I got pregnant right away.) It wasn't until I tried extra strength cough medicine with only guaifenesin that I got pregnant. Twice in a row. (Both resulted in early mc, but at least I conceived.)

    I think miscarriage is responsible for drying up cervical mucus as I too experienced this.

    This cycle however I took 1000mg of EPO upto ovulation, increased my water intake and drank both grapefruit juice and pineapple juice. It didn't seem to be making a difference until 4dpo when I have had lots of creamy CM since :dance: I am hoping that it is because I have caught that eggy this cycle BUT If we haven't I know we will have a greater chance next month because of it.
