Know that some people believe that drinking grapefruit juice while TTC can increase your chances. Can anyone tell me when in your cycle you should start and should you just drink it on an ongoing basis??

I drank it last cycle starting on CD1. Drank loads until ovulation then eased off. Seemed to work - had loads of EWCM and now I;m 5 weeks pregnant.

Still drinking the odd glass now just because I like it (and I have 3 litres of the stuff in my fridge).

I attribute ds (aged 4) to grapefruit juice! We had been TTC for a very long and stressful 18 months when I first tried it. I drank a glass a day from end of AF until I knew I have ovulated.

I drank it with fizzy water. I did drink quite a lot though. I like the taste. Maybe you could mix it with orange or pineapploe juice?

PS it is supposed to thin out cervical mucus. There is some info here - halfway down page under 'Grapefruit Juice and Cervical Mucus'

I had it every day for 2 weeks last cycle and got one day of lots of ewcm all coming out in one huge blob (tmi?). This cycle I had a glass every day for a week for the second week of cycle and seemed to have quite a lots of ewcm. Dunno if it that what worked

This may be a bit late and you may have bought it already but according to the wealth of experience on MN you have to make sure you get the fresh grapefruit juice not the stuff made form concentrate. No idea if that is true but in know first time round I bought 2l of the 'from concentrate' then read it had to be the fresh stuff and had to go out and buy some more! Could be rubbish but just so you know

Thanks for good luck No Nickname. Started drinking it last night and it's surprisingly tasty! Bought the not from concentrate stuff HairyToe but thanks for the advice. smile

Yes I like the taste too. I'm still drinking it now...mixed with fizzy water I can almost convince myself I'm drinking a gin and tonic...almost!

Having read that article i am depressed as i have to take antihistamine everyday for a condition i have, so doesn't look very hopefull. maybe if i try the grapefruit juice and evening primrose it might stop effect of antihistamine?
