    Question Ways to increase CM

    Hi All!

    Just started my new cycle and it'll be my second cycle with TTC #1

    On my first cycle I noticed that CM was very minimal. I have been off the pill for 4 months now so this could be the cause.



    Just wondering if there is anything natural or any supplements that can be taken to increase CM. I want to buy something with tomorrow shopping so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    You can buy a product called Preseed, I have no idea where to get it, but there are quite a few girls on here who have and do use it. Try getting super aroused - it works for me, but you do have to put a bit of effort into it sometimes.

    Hi Nagala

    Sorry to hear about AF, you deserved a BFP with all the BDing you and your man did.

    You can get preseed from Lullaby Conceptions. I have also heard of women using Robitussen but it has to be a certain one, can't remember which.

    HTH

    Goodluck with this cycle

    Wow! Thanks for the quick response ladies!!

    I have seen the pre-seed on the lullaby conceptions website and I remember Celsie was saying how good it was.. I might have a look again!

    I just did a search on the evening primrose oil and it says that it helps reduce pre-menstraul tension.. nothing directly to helping CM.. but I think I read in a thread to only take it up until you O.. gotta do some more reading!

    Not sure Sherie, I was under the impression that you take it orally, but not 100% certain on that.

    Grapefruit juice apparently is very good.

    With DD I had been going to a Naturopath & she gave me some tablets to take to increase CM, can't remember the name but they were only available from a Naturopath (or similar). After a couple of months I noticed an increase & added in the grapefruit juice (1 glass every morning) just in case it would help (we had been TTC for 2 yrs), I fell pregnant after a couple of cycles of the combined tablets & juice.

    With this pregnancy I had been drinking the GF juice just the one month, which is the cycle I fell pregnant & we only BD twice (but I remember noticing heaps of CM)

    Hey Ngala

    If you want to go in super duper prepared, pick up some OPKs from LC aswell.
    This was my first cyle using them and just got my BFP last night.

    When we were TTC Kynan I was on clomid so to try and increase my CM I drank green tea, grapefruit juice (the pink/red stuff tastes better IMO!), heaps of water, ate lots of carrots, and took vitamin E too.

    I drank the grapefruit juice from AF to O.

    JulieD - yup! I have got the OPK's as well.. DIdnt really want to buy them but I thought I'd give them a go and see what we get

    Angel - Thanks for the info! I bought the pink grapefruit juice last night and I actually think its alright! A bit bitter but still drinkable.

    Thanks girls!

    Just been reading through this, Veronica.... I've added grapefruit juice and evening primrose tablets to my shopping list Will get some pre seed the next cycle if no BFP next time (because I'll need more OPK's anyway).
    I think I really need to drink more water too. Some cycles I have more CM than others.... I haven't been having all that much water lately so it may be the cause? All trial and error, isn't it?
