    I asked this last month as well :)

    It's cough medicine with guaifenesin (sp) as the active ingredient in it but you have to check there are no other active ingredients cos another one may cause the mucus to dry up and not increase it!

    I think it was a venos one that I found, I had a cough anyway so had finished the bottle, you take it from start of af to ovulation but no after I think.

    Hopefully someone else will be able to give you more thorough info :D

    I think that the ingredient is meant to either increase your EWCM in your fertile time or make it better somehow.

    I've never tried it myself because my CM seems fine and I can't stand cough medicine so I don't want to take it unless I really need to ....... :lol:

    It's supposed to increase the amount of EWCM you produce, so take it the few days before ovulation.

    I tried it when TTC with my first. Made no odds at all that month. I hate medicine too.

    I make extra effort to drink more water leading up to ov. I don't seem to suffer with lack of EWCM anyway.
