A side effect of clomid is that it can prevent you from making ewcm  (the mucus needed, which is usually created just before and around ovulation). I didnt have any ewcm the first two months on clomid - ive just finished my third month. I read up that evening primrose oil can help with this so i have taken it this month and it has certainly helped. It also helped with the usual side effects i have been getting whilst on clomid.I would also recommend the ovulation tests, the are a good way to tell when you are ovulating. Good luck!

I have pcos also which is why im on clomid, i was having absent periods for 5-8 months. Clomid has helped regulate my cycle. I started the ovulation tests this month and it worked - i got a positive result on day 13. You should start testing from day 10. If positive it is recommended you have sex that day and the following two days to be sure as you are due to ovulate in the next 12-72 hrs. I have done a lot of reading up on this !! Lol. Im now on day 28 and waiting to see what happens the next few days!
