I sometimes get a bit of EW(like)CM, but not a lot, and then it goes away. This cycle, I had it a full week, if not more, before I got real CM.
I count on getting better prediction from CM than from OPKs for fresh. I figure CM means there's a chance, or at least my body thinks there is, and OPKs means that a little plastic stick thinks there is.
I figure a good OPK with no CM is a bad sign, but the other way around means you might have just missed the surge, either by following the directions and only testing one OPK per day, or by just not having them work for you - too hydrated, whatever.
My vote - start OPKs if you feel like it, but don't be surprised if the CM totally goes away for a few days and then comes back when it's actually time to O.
As for me. . .my CM and OPK have actually lined up, I think.
I peaked CM output a couple of days ago, but I'm still a little EW today, so I figure it's worth a shot - my OPK yesterday almost caught either the beginning or the end of the surge, it wasn't quite positive, and my OPK today was a fainter line, nowhere near positive, so I think I am Oing today or yesterday, so I'm putting some more sperm in tonight, just in case.
