@Leonard2B:  if the ONLY thing holding you back from your BFP is lack of CM, then yeah it will help. 

 

I have more problems than that, but I do use Preseed. No BFP yet.

@Leonard2B:  When I took NFP classes the lady mentioned this! She said if you’re not creating enough CM to use mucinex, I thought it was bizarre but it makes sense!! I’m only using pressed right now but mybe if I don’t get a BFP soon ill give it a try

I want to try Mucinex next cycle…..i picked up regular old Mucinex paying attention to the active ingredient.

 

Anyone who uses this have suggestion on when to start/stop taking it?

I’ve taken guafenisen syrup (it’s the same thing) for my last 4 cycles. No BFP yet. Rosworms is right, if you have a lack of enough CM it’ll thin what you have out so it’s more hospitable.

meadow_jersey:  I take guafenesin syrup. I start it about 5 days before I expect to O and a day after just in case.

I took mucinex before O an all it did was delay my O day, which messed up our BD schedule, and made me really dry. The next cycle I just used preseed and I got a BFP!

so in my experience, preseed was awesome (it felt great, too), and mucinex was a total bust.

makemake:  Was guaifenesin the only ingredient?  If it had other ingredients, those are what can dry you up.  Congrats on your BFP!

poetryreader80:  yep! I was super careful – it’s hard to find the solo ingredient but I did. I should have mentioned that (that I used the right stuff) in my first post. :}
