Some medications can affect cervical mucus. Is this fact or fiction? This is a FACT!

Common medications which affect cervical mucus are:

Anti-histamines (cold or allergy medications) - can inhibit cervical mucus
Penicillin based antibiotics - have a mucus enhancing effect
Some anti-depressants

Higher doses of Vitamin C - can inhibit cervical mucus
Higher doses of Vitamin B - can enhance cervical mucus

If you are working to learn NFP or FAM from an instructor, she will take a summary of any medications you are on as part of your medical history to let you know how your meds may affect your charting. It's also important to always make a note on your chart of any new medications you have taken.
