It seems like everyone is saying that Clomid had dried them up. I don't want this to happen to me! I am just so not ready for another issue to happen to me. I know I wouldn't be able to handle it emotionally that now I've got no fertile cm to help me conceive. And am so not wanting to have to use artificial CM to help me conceive.

So please tell me clomid does not necessarily dry up everybody?!? All this trying to conceive thing is really taking a toll on me. I am so emotionally drained from trying and especially being put on so many differents medications. I know that if I had to go out and buy preseed to give me eggwhites, that would be the last straw for me.

So many women in this world that have no problems in conceiving, and so many women in this world also have problems with conceiving. Why do I have to always be in the "odds" side.

i'm sorry you are feeling so frustrated. Clomid doesn't dry allll women out, so you may get lucky. I have to use lubrication whenever we make love because i don't like ANY irritation down there... and it just so happens that preseed is the most natural lubricant i've ever tried, i even like using it when we AREN'T TTC... so if for some reason the clomid dries you up, don't look at is as another ttc product, think of it as a way of enhancing your sex life!!
Goodluck hun, i hope it all goes smoothly!!

It didn't dry me up!!!! Like Melissa said, it doesn't dry every woman up, so that may be you!! I, also, like PreSeed - I highly recommend it. I just use it for peace of mind that hopefully I'm creating a better environment for DH's boys

hi there. for me, i have very little CM anyway due to a surgery that i had on my cervix. my last clomid cycle i took the 12 hour mucinex tablets twice per day and my RE said 'mucus is looking fantastic'. so if you try that it should help. i mean its not every day someone compliments your mucus.

I wish I could tell you that it wouldn't happen to you but you need to be precautious rather that reactionary. I would take the mucinex or get PreSeed just in case. I used PreSeed & it was great!

It didn't dry me up, actually I had the opposite happen, I had MORE CM.
Just keep in mind not everyone reacts the same way
