I took clomid and I know it can cause hostile cervical mucos, but what is that, and how do I know if I have it? Just curious!! :)
Thanks, Helayna

Helayna, This is the way that I understand it. As a woman approaches ovulation, her body creates a slippery, egg-white like cervical mucous to help the sperm navigate to reach the egg. Usually good quality cm is stretchy between your fingers and clear. Cm has been a great indicator of my most fertile time because it's really obvious. Unfortunately, I have begun taking Clomid this month. So far I have not had any quality cm. Instead the cm is sticky or non-existent (hostile). I have been charting my temps and cm for about 1 year, so this is what I have learned. I recommend the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" because it explains a lot of these topics more in depth. Hope this info helps. Good luck on Clomid!

Hey Jen! Yes, that happens to me too taking clomid. Its not that its 'poisonous' or anything, just dry.
