Hello all,

Am only on day 3 of 28. So in a few days af will be over and Ill be ready to try again. Im hopeful, I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to increase cm naturally. After my mc I got bv and struggled with that for a while which was a big pain in the but!!! But since then it seems that my cm has decreased and was just wanting to know if anyone else has had this problem and has any advice. I heard of the stuff called preseed but I would prefer not putting anything in there considering the struggle I had with bv I dont want any chances of going through that again.

Agree with the other ladies - an expectorant cough medicine, FertileCM and LOTS of water!

GL, hope you get your BFP soon!

I drank a lot of water & drank 1-2 cups of green tea a day and that really helped me a ton.

FertilCM is a vitamin pill you take that is intended to increase it. I took it and was really surprised at the cm I got. Preseed is the personal lubricant. You could do either or both and get great results.

Hey, I am all over this topic. As I got out of my 20s I noticed that my cm was not as noticable. Then, after my d&c I developed endometritis which took months to clear up. Then after my IVF I developed a very resistant YI which took a month to clear up.
So - here's what I know about cm. FertilCM helped me. You can order it online (amazon, etc) and at a very few specialty pharmacies. Some ladies swear by RobitussinDM. You have to make sure its the type with the expectorant and NOT the decongestant (drying agent). I also noticed that the times I was super-hydrated I would get some better cm.
GL!
