I know about pre-seed, but the ONLY pharmacy in town that carries it is OUT of stock....just my luck (and we don't have CVS here in Idaho)! I definitely don't want to use raw egg whites...too scary for salmonella and infections. What the heck else can help with my CM at this point? I also read about Pre-Conceive plus and Slippery Stuff, but I need to find where they carry it around here. I know I'm grasping at straws here because it may just be moot at this point. But we want to BD at least once more tonight and maybe tomorrow..and I need HELP!!

Thanks!

*EDIT*: Ooops, I didn't read your post fully, and just realized you said you didn't want to use egg whites and I already wrote the below. Sorry!

I wanted to also add in the Robitussin expectorant taken every few hours is supposed to loosen up and thin out CM.

Orig. post:
Dani,
Toni Weschler (in Taking Charge of Your Fertility) and some midwives suggest using room-temp raw egg whites (from chicken eggs), as do other docs. I think they don't openly advocate it because there is risk of salmonella as there is with ingesting raw egg as in a ceasar salad or sunny-side-up eggs. But apparently that works too...

They say to use a lube applicator and fill it with the egg white. I have never used it but I'm not gonna lie and say I considered it---it just turned out my CVS had PreSeed in stock!!

Walmart has a sperm friendly lube called pre-conceive or something like that.

Thanks ladies for putting up with my insanity! :) My dh and I didn't even bd last night anyway. I was too tired and I had next to 0 cm all day yesterday. My cervix was also lower and kinda turned back. So I *think* 'O' already happened. My temps are ssssllllllooooooowwwwwwlllllyyyyyy inching their way up. I guess I won't know for sure if I 'O'd until they're way up over coverline, but I think it's over. This has been the craziest cycle ever. I just hope it wasn't actually anovulatory...but like I said, time and temps will tell.


Thank you so much! Guess I'll be ordering my pre-seed for next month! Dang, I HATE getting older!


God bless,


Danielle


ETA----They don't carry pre-conceive at Walmart here....just the old stand-bys: Astroglide and KY Jelly. Darn!!
