We are suppose to bed tomorrow to try to conceive a boy! Quick what are some natural ways to thin out my cervical Mucus?? :) I took clomid this month and it's like all the mucus is stuck up there! WEIRD... I usualy have discharge, it's there but not coming down.... how do I know it's there? Becaue the Dr. told me to do a half a douche 3 days prior to the actual intercourse day, and each time a douche a string of mucus comes out, usually it does this on it's own. Sorry TMI... Ok, so I know water? What can I drink, what can I eat, fruits?? what................ juice??

someone sent me tips a long time ago and I can't find the email!

Thanks
Cari

Hi Cari

Just lurking on the board, haven't posted in ages but have you thought of egg white (as a lubricant). I'm sure I've read something about that in the past when ttc a boy.

Clomid does dry out your mucus, that is why it is taken for the Ericsson method when trying for a girl (that's how I got my dd who is now 18 months old!)

Good luck

Robitussen or Mucinex - anything with Guisafsen in it will help loosen and thin out musus. It works the same on nasal mucus as on cervical mucus. Take with LOTS of water! I took Robi about 4 hours before TTC our son. Mucinex was not available at the time but is much stronger.

I would NOT recommend egg white bcasue of possible infection.

Sending you positive babay dust!
