Here I am Whining about CM

My CM is terrible.  WTIF!

I've now taken two bottles of Fertile.CM, have started on my third.  I eat (I think) super healthy.  I drink plenty of water and green tea (decaf - no caffeine for me) (Internet has suggested that).  What gives?  Any further CM tips out there?

I didn't see any EWCM this month at all.  Poot.  Normally I don't have a ton of CM, but I at least see a little bit when I go looking.

I guess I will go back to Royal Jelly.  Ugh.  I really hate that stuff - I think it tastes like death.  I didn't think it was doing much, but maybe...?  And Dr Nora had me on a herbal tincture to improve lung phelgm, maybe that did help a bit?

I also haven't tried guaifenesin (cough syrup) yet, I guess I can try that next month.  Can't hurt. 

Maybe I will try Evening Primrose Oil?  It is also supposed to help with breast soreness, which Goodness knows I have (and will have in about 3 days).  And maybe grapefruit juice?  Seems a bit crazy, but can't hurt.  I can mix it with my Kombucha.  :)

Ah...back to actively trying.  So much to do!

In other news - I checked LH with test strips this month - haven't done that in a while.  CD14 - nothing.  CD15 - faint line.  Today - super faint line.  What gives?  I used to have a VERY solid line.

Whine, whine, whine.... sorry ladies!


We're off to visit my Dad this weekend in my hometown.  Should be fun.  And we're visiting our most optimal couple friends - I am high school friends with her, and her husband and DH are good friends, so it is optimal for everyone.  And their kids are cute, and call me Auntie CS.  :)


  1. I hope you have a nice trip!!

    I've never tried Fertile CM before. Do you know what all is in it?

    I used to drink a lot of green tea (and it helped), but I heard it can block absorption of Folic Acid so I stopped drinking it.

    I have used the cough syrup/tablets, and it seemed to help. Lots of water with that.

    Currently, I'm taking Evening Primrose Oil. This is my 3rd cycle. I started at 500mg the first cycle, then bumped it up to 1,000 mg the 2nd cycle and this cycle. I think you can take even more, but I'm hesitant to take too much of anything. I have a lots of watery CM & EWCM this cycle!! It's a natural cycle, and I have more CM than on a medicated cycle!

    We also use pre-seed for those dry times. Sometimes I have just a little CM and then it dries up while I'm!

    Oh, and it's weird you mentioned that about your OPKs because that happened to me this cycle. I took one and there was like no other line!! So I just gave up on them for this cycle LOL, especially because we're mostly on a "break".

    Aww, don't feel like you're whining :-) I'm excited for you!! Good luck!

  2. Thanks LisaBttc! That's it - I am going out and getting EPO for next cycle. Good - I like a plan.

  3. Don't forget that you're still healing! My CM was strange for a couple of months before it got back to normal.

    Have a fun trip home!

  4. I take B6 extended release, Mucinex 1200mg extended release, and FertileCM. In addition Keefe has me on Amoxicillin for a few cycles and that stuff kicked the CM into high gear!

  5. Try not to stress about it (easier said than done, I know)...LOTS of women get pregnant with NO CM....I say, buy some Pre-Seed if you don't already have it and use that...AND GOOD LUCK GOOD LUCK GOOD LUCK!!! <3
