Trying for Bubs #1 - October 21

Hi, Can anyone tell me if using Robitussen whilst trying to conceive has actually worked? DH and I have been TTC for 8 months now. How much should I be taking and at what time in my cycle should I be taking it and when to stop? Help would be greatly appreciated!

I tried it for only one month and it didn't work for me, but I have other issues. You need to make sure you get the kind that only has guaifenesin as the active ingredient - no DM, etc. as those ingredients can be harmful to the fetus. You should take 200mg three times a day from AF to O or day 5 to O (I have heard both recommendations). Robitussin will not increase your cm, it will only thin out the cm you have already, so if you have thick cm this would be good for you. If you want more cm, I would recommend taking evening primrose oil.

tj is right, guaifenesin is also in benelyn. Its the chesty cough one you need. As tj says it only thins, although you could try preseed, which is a sperm friendly lubricant

Where do I get pre-seed from? It is by prescription or is it OTC. Never saw it. Thanks.

www.accessdiagnostics.co.uk you can only get it on the internet at the moment. I bought from this site and they do other stuff too. opks, hpt, etc.

You can get preseed over the internet at www.early-pregnancy-tests.com or at amazon.com. It is expensive ($17 for 6 applications) but I think it is well worth it. It makes bding so much more comfortable.
