Who has used robitussin (or anything other than preseed) to help with CM? I get EWCM when I am not on Clomid, but never get it on Clomid *sigh*

What days are you supposed to take it? I used it last year in March when I was on Clomid for the first time and got my first bfp (well, second technically, but the first round didn't count b/c I broke my wrist and we stopped ttc that month). But I can't remember how I took it...I wonder if it's why I got my bfp then.

Just curious what you all do to help with the CM issues of Clomid, and when to start using them!

I havent tried that so I cant help, but I did try evening primrose oil to help with CM. I was on it for about 4 months and all it really gave me was an upset stomach and didnt seem to help unfortunately. But I know a ton of girls find it to be very helpful for them.

I did it year and years ago when ttc my first. I think you take it from after AF to O 1 tsp daily.

But I never had any significant results. At the time I was also chugging red grapefruit juice and I did have some CM on it.

I took it a couple days before O to give me lots of EWCM & it worked!
I just can't choke that yucky stuff down easily, so I only did it once, but it did work!

I wanted to try Robitussin, but I read that it has to be the plain one without the DM, and I could not find the plain one anywhere!

Nat they say that but if you read on the box even the DM has an expectorant in it, and thats what really matters.

oh ok, thanks Manda - I thought that the DM had things in it that could be potentially harmful for conception.

I just look for the only active ingredient to be that one that starts with a G...guaf-something or another. I started using it this weekend. I noticed even my saliva was thicker, and just since I started using the tussin it seems to be back to normal. Just waiting to see if it helps my CM - so far nothing to write home about!

Sorry I'm just now responding!

I just took a normal dosage, like you would if you were sick.

thanks amber! haha, no worries on the late response I just started sucking it down at periodic intervals, so we'll see what happens! I analyzed the time I got a bfp on Clomid vs. last cycle, and that was my only piece that was different...so hopefully adding it back in this cycle will bring me a !!
