Preseed or supplements to increase ewcm?

Postby Luvsdogs » Sat Oct 06, 2012 8:49 pm

I have gotten pregnant using preseed once and also once not using preseed. However, I rarely get any ewcm. Wondering who would stick with preseed which I have right now or if I should start a supplement to try to increase ewcm? I think I heard robittusin? Any advice is great! I should O in just shy of two weeks. Thanks!

You may want to try evening primrose oil. Take it from cd1 until ovulation day. I also suffer from a lack of ewcm and tried Epo this cycle. I noticed an improvement in the quantity and consistency of my cm. But I also used preseed to be sure. I'm in my 2ww now and praying for a bfp.

I've tried EPO but you need at least 2 full months before you really notice a difference (or at least that was my experience). I also use Robitussin and that worked for me after 10 days (if you can stand the taste) but I still believe that a lub is best as the Rubitussin only thins out your existing CM doesn't create more (personally I needed more). Plus I started at Day 1 and ended after O so if it takes longer for you then you may miss your window.

Here is an exert about Robitussin:
What kind of Robitussin is used to improve cervical mucus?
One should buy the plain kind with no letters after it. The only active ingredient is guaifenesin, and it contains 100 mg per teaspoon. It is very important to avoid the versions that contain decongestants as those may dry up cervical mucus. Also, there is some conflicting information about whether dextromethorphan, the DM in some cough medicine names, may be linked to birth defects such as neural tube defects and cleft palate


Lately I have been using Zestica instead of PreSeed. I find the Zestica (lub not spray) seems more natural and not as goopy and messy as PreSeed. When DH and I used PreSeed he said to me is that all you? So it was obvious how messy it was but with the Zestica he can not even tell there is a difference. Plus the Zestica comes in individual tubes which I find good so there is no cleaning applicators after the fact. Just a suggestion.....

Thanks for the advice TTc. I think I'll use up my preseed this cycle and then order the zestica. Thanks!

I'm not sure where you are from Luvsdogs but in Canada you can get Zestica at your local drug store (Shoppers Drug Mart) ....

I am in Minnesota. I will have to see if we have it at a drug store. Otherwise...there's always online. Thanks!
