Christina - December 13

DH & I have been ttc for several months. AF is very regular & I know that I ovulate, but I produce very little CM. I have been trying different things...cough syrup, grapefruit juice...etc...but nothing seems to work. Could this be why we are not conceiving??? If so, what do I need to do??? Please help!!

Hi Christina, Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you, but I am in the same situation as you. I tried pre-seed this month, but unfortunately that didn't work for us. Good luck and hope we get an answer!

Allie-is pre seed supposed to help the sperm swim? When DH & I bd, there is no dryness. Do you think that we should try pre seed? Thanks!

Hi Christina. If you're not having EWCM, PreSeed might be an option for you. Thicker CM could be a barrier keeping the spermies from getting to your egg. I'd definitely think PreSeed might help. IUI's might help too, but PreSeed is much cheaper. :) Also, have you had your DH tested? There may be male issues too. HTH. Good luck!

Christina, I just had this conversation with my ob/gyn because I don't have a lot of ewcm - but I do have milky cm. She said everyone is different - that I should track my temperature or use an OPK. Good luck.

Thanks everyone! So far I have tried charting BBT & OPK's. I had the rise in temps indicating I was ovulating. With the OPK's, my lines got progressively darker for a few days, but I'm not sure if they ever really got darker than the control line. Like I said, this month I am taking cough syrup, eating baby carrots & drinking lots of grapefruite juice...all of which I have heard help EWCM. So I am going to keep my fingers crossed! I think that I'll go ahead & order some pre seed & see how that works out. I have a pelvic u/s scheduled for next month if I am not pregnant by then. I'm really hoping I won't have to go to that appt.!!

One more question...have any of you heard if evening primrose oil actually does help create EWCM? I've thought about taking it, but I don't like taking things w/o knowing how my body is going to react!!! Thanks! :)
