Does cough syrup really work in helping produce EWCM?

Discussion in 'Pregnancy' started by antoniou, Mar 6, 2011.

  1. As the title suggests really. I bought some Benilyn mucus cough syrup today (with the ingredient I can't spell) and have begun to take it. I've read that for it to be effective you should take 2 teaspoons 3 times a day, followed by a glass of water. I also read that you only need to take it for about 5 days prior to OV. I just wondered if anyone else has used cough syrup to help produce EWCM and if they found it worked?
    My OH is very sceptical about these things, so I always feel very doubtful about buying supplements, etc.
    Thanks in advance.
  2. Haha! I finished my packet of pregnacare conception tablets and didn't buy any more - they're just so expensive, so back to the bog-standard folic acid for me.
    Have been taking the cough syrup, followed by a glass of water. I think it's probably the increase in fluids that halps more than the cough syrup on its own. I've already had 2 full glasses of water (and will have another later with my third dose of syrup). That'll be a 300% increase for me as I only usually manage about 3 cups of tea and 1 glass of juice a day (bad, I know)!
