Start taking it CD1 and take it up till you Ovulate then stop. I think it's 500MG or 1000mg you take, I cant remember. I'm trying it again this month (I took it when I got pregs in March) Good luck!


ETA: I googled it, it's 1500-3000MG a day =0)

 You start the day af comes and stop the day you ovulate. Take 3000mg and drink plenty of water. I wanted to ask though, do you produce ewcm on your own? If you do then this is not necessary.

 You should not take more than 3000mg.

And I never heard of switching to anything else post ovulation.

 I do not either but i did not notice a difference with the epo. Iget only creamy but it must work. I would maybe try mucinex instead?

We need to set up a gameplan for you. What are you going to try? I am wondering about your bding, sorry. Are you doing it too much? Not enough? I want to help if I can. When do you go back to see your doctor?

Some women only make creamy cm like me and that is their version of fertile cm.
