1047147 tn?1328906154 The name Robitussin was used in the title of this FAQ as it is a common brand of cough syrup in the United States. It is used on the fertility boards and newsgroups in the same manner as saying Band-Aid for an adhesive strip used to cover a cut. Any expectorant that contains guaifenesin as the only active ingredient is fine to use. What kind of Robitussin is used to improve cervical mucus? One should buy the plain kind with no letters after it.

Avatar f tn I just started taking clomid and i read to start the guaifenesin on day 10 till ovulation. On a website for fertility i read that you need to take 200mg three times a day!
377493 tn?1356502149 A girl I used to work with had fertility issues and I remember her saying "hostile mucus". She did IUI and got pregnant that way. :( I can't wait until the 26th so that we can get things movin!!
Avatar f tn ve heard about taking Robitussin or Mucinex (guaifenesin) as and OTC aide and was wondering if anyone has had any success with it? Also, I've heard great reviews for Daily Wellness FertilityBlend from GNC. Is that one any good or is just a standard Prenatal vitamin a better choice?
Avatar f tn does anyone know any other fertility treatments i can try apart from Clomid, that doesnt have "cysts" as a side effect? ive just had a cyst removed and hoping to speak now with my doctor about fertility treatment, i would like to try clomid but...cysts!! what else is out there to help me make a little baby??
773214 tn?1295135069 sorry here it is Robitussin and it’s Effect on Cervical Mucus Robitussin works on the cervical mucus and increases your chances of getting pregnant Robitussin is a popular brand of cough syrup and it might be surprising to consider its relation with fertility. But the fact is that this expectorant is used to loosen and thin mucus of a different kind too, called cervical mucus, in women.
359295 tn?1285952394 I m/c on 9/29, and have been having trouble since. I chart my BBT, Cm, and Cp and still nothing. I am just looking for natural ways to help increase fertility. I miscarried for a reason and would do anything to prevent it from happening again. Not sure if there is much to do, i know it is all left in Gods hands, but its nice to know i could be helping it along.

Robitussin is only a specific brand and any expectorant that contains guaifenesin as the only active ingredient can be used in its place.
1106767 tn?1315050974 I have done some research and it appears that clomid can dry up cervical mucus in some people.But if you take robitussin that contains the ingredient (guaifenesin) only and take 1 teaspoon morning and night its supposed to help.But you only take it after your period ends and stop when you ovulate.Drinking a daily glass of grapefruit juice also helps as does eating sweet potato or yams.I am using conceive plus also which is a lubricant similar to preseed.
Avatar f tn Hi there! As a matter of fact I do have a friend with type 1 diabetes that now has 3 healthy children. Her and her husband did try awhile to conceive the first time and finally turned to IVF. She was 36 or perhaps 37 at that time. She had an uneventful pregnancy and delivered a beautiful, healthy set of boy/girl twins. Just before those babies 1st birthday, she found herself pregnant naturally, and although were not preventing this time, they weren't really trying either.
Avatar f tn Hi i can confirm that the cough syrup is robitussin chesty cough medicine that contains (guaifenesin) only.Its in a red and black box.I have never noticed my cervical mucus ever before and this was my first month on clomid.I took robitussin every morning and evening (5ml dose).You only take it after AF has ended and stop when you ovulate.I drank a glass of grapefruit juice every morning as its supposed to help CM too.
Avatar n tn I know it should be sticky, EGCM and stretchy. Mine is hardly stretchy at all - a few millimeters and it breaks imidiately. It also only lasting for a few hours every cycle.

Avatar n tn Well as happens I am taking the medication for different reason and different form (pill format and control of dystonic spasms) and I've taken it as a cough medicine in the past and at prescription dosages it can have side effects of concern in higher dosages.
Avatar n tn I've had asthma since I was little, and as far as I've gathered, expectorant is for non-asthmatic cough sufferers while mucolytics are for asthmatics. Is this true? What's confusing me though is why "guaifenesin", a component in one asthma pill I used to take, is used as an "expectorant", and the only OTC drug available for the purpose of easing the removal of phlegm here in the U.S.
Avatar n tn yes, well sort of. It's Guaifenesin an ingredient found in cough meds. You can usually find a store brand of robitussin that has only Guaifenesin in it. The ingredient is made to break up mucus, but if taken while you ovulate it can make your CM more compatible with sperm.
Avatar n tn I have fibromyalgia so and am in grad school and working so fatigue is my middle name . I wear a mouth guard and washed real good thinking maybe there was some bacteria on it or something .
Avatar f tn Also, you may want to check out the Yahoo support group for guai users who have fibro. Just go to Yahoo - groups and type in guaifenesin. There are some knowledgeable people in that group who can help. Best wishes & God bless.

I am taking 600mg of guaifenesin in an attempt to loosen any mucus I have...I'm really hoping and praying that we conceive this round...I am supposed to be ovulating between today and the 29th...

Avatar f tn I have a bad cold and have been coughing so hard my tummy huts . I'm 8 weeks . is that a medical energency, and can I use vick's.
Avatar f tn s testimonies and graphic details about their symptoms and the effects from guaifenesin, I decided to give it a go. I personally felt that if this was bull#$% then why were so many people finding success on it. At first I was like you and the other responder, I thought this guy was full of bull, but how could this dr be so good at explaining the most intimate of symptoms? (Either he really knew what he was talking about or he was extremely adept to exploiting peoples weaknesses.
927769 tn?1275932602 ve started on the generic of mucinex and it only has 400 MG of ONLY GUAIFENESIN. I would say ask your doctor and if they say you shouldn't take it because of birth defects then don't. Also, remember you're only supposed to take it 5 days before O and some doc's say you can take it the day after O. This is because sperm may live up to 5 days in the fertile rich CM. Just a note...
