    I am wondering about this because I do not get any EWCM. I am heading back to a fertility specialist on Nov 5th. However, I am curious as to what lack of EWCM may indicate?

    The only time that I have ever noticed getting EWCM is when I was taking clomid. Other than that I do not get it. My CM is always white and lotiony and it stays that consistency all month long.

    Does this indicate hormonal issues?

    I don't usually get EWCM, but I do get watery CM, which is second best.
    I think it is related to a hormonal imbalance, but I'm pretty sure it can easily be treated.
    You could also try preseed, which gives you a nice EWCM environment.

    Rising estrogen before ovulation causes fertile CM. I never got EWCM (I did get watery CM, which isn't too shabby) until I started taking evening primrose oil. That worked like magic for me...now I get a good two days of it, along with some watery CM. I also use Pre-seed. Worth a shot if you're a bit lacking in the CM department :)

    I really recommend evening primrose oil. Normally I would get a little bit of EWCM, sometimes nothing but this month I had 3 days of it/watery CM! I have also increased drinking water because I read that that can help

    Hi. Hav anyone taken Folic Acid together with evening primrose oil at the same time? Will it cause any complication? Thank you.

    No,I've taken them together and had absolutely no side effects.Of course,everyone is different,but I think they're both quite natural substances,so I doubt they would have any adverse effects.

    I get watery CM. I do recall getting EWCM back before taking BC but now that I am off of it, I only get watery CM.

    I rarely ever got it even in the past...I got the EWCM after my D&C, but that was back in May...nothing since then. My doctor said that NOT having it doesn't mean it would be more difficult to conceive than someone who does so....I'm on my 2nd round of Clomid and still haven't had it.

    Cervical mucous isn't an accurate indicator of fertility or lack of, its nice to have because of all the feedback so it's reassuring :)
