Hiya :D has anyone tried taking cough medicine with 'robitussin' to increase their EWCM? It seems the american's swear by it, anyone here used it with any success?

I never seem to have much EWCM, possibly why i'm not pregnant yet?? We tried pre-seed for a couple of month, but it didn't work & its pretty expensive!!

Does anyone have any other tricks for a lack of EWCM? Any advice would be much appreciated

Hi Mate ...try a glass of grape fruit juice & about three primrose tablets a day. It worked for me & i know lot of other ladies are using this as well.

Hi I take Evening Primrose. Quite stong capsules I think 1050mg from boots I found this really helped everything after I had my implant out. If you have been taking any kind of hormonal contraception CM seems to be affected and can take a while to return. I take it up to ovulation and have also found it has really helped with sore boobs too. I get hardly any pain even before AF. Some people go for grapefruitt juice too but I couldn't stomach it everyday. You don't have to have ecwm to get pregnant it just help the sperms on tir way and is a good inicator of your very fertile time. Robotussin is good but I don't know wether you take it everyday but hope this helps.

you can also try pre seed lubricant - sperm friendly allegedly, think a few on here have had conception joy with it!

yes please do im my book( taking charge of your fertilty) it does mention a cough mixture, thats why i asked at the clinic, but they said people, use to much, so they said its better to leave alone, because of this it can cause birth defects

Ok, cool, thanks.

With the evening primrose oil, i assume you take it the 2 weeks between AF & ovulation, then not in the following 2 weeks?

upto ovulation, yes it too can do damage taken at the wrong time, i take a high dose, from day 1 of af until i think ive ovulated
