If I think that i might be pregnant, but have to wait to test until after my next period. What medicine can i take that would be safe for baby? I keep coughing uncontrollably.....also could this coughing hurt the pregnancy? I know sounds like a stupid question...but sometimes i cough so hard that i feel like i might throw up.

Unfortunately, I don't think there is much you can take. I am taking Robitussin to help me get pregnant (it thins the cervical mucus so that the sperm can swim up easier) and as far as I know it is safe. It has to have guaifenesin as the only active ingredient. It is for "chest congestion" so it would probably loosen the phlegm in your chest and make coughing a little more productive for you. I would call your doctor's office and ask for advice.

Thanks for the answer Deb! Now you have me wondering something else since you said how the robitussin thins the cervical mucus.... I was taking mucinex dm for this cough when i had s_x.... is it probable that this also may have thinned that mucus? If it has, does that make it more probable that i may be pregnant? Thanks
