I have decided to try the Robitussin thing for this next cycle, but I have a couple of questions. Hopefully someone can help me!
First of all, I read to take the kind that has ONLY Guaifenesin as the active ingredient, and that using some with more than that in it can actually diminish the effect I want. However, The only robitussin I could find that contains Guaif at all also contains Dextromethorphan. So is this the wrong kind then??
Then also, I read you should start taking it 5 days before O and then the day of O. What if you don't know exactly when you O? Is it bad to take it a couple extra days?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated please!!!!!
If the Robitussin has an initials (like DM) it is not the right kind. You need to take plain Robitussin with no initials. All of the other Robitussins are made to dry up your sinuses and will dry up your CM. Not a good thing!! You definitely need to make sure that you are taking plain Robitussin.
I actually had very good luck drinking a mug of green tea everyday from the start of my period until I ovulated. It increased my CM without medicine!
The robitussin I bought has no initials, but it does contain a cough suppressant as well as the expectorant (which thins mucous). I will keep my eye out for some that has only the expectorant just to be safe
I've thought about the green tea thing as well, however I just hate tea! Tea of all kinds! Tea is one of those acquired tastes along with coffee that I just never learned to like
Thanks for your advice it helped me a lot!
