    Default Question about taking Mucinex and CM

    Hi everyone, DH and I have been trying for a couple of months. Don't temp because kids wake me up at different times in the morning, so it wouldn't be accurate. I monitor CM to find when I O and I usually O on CD16 or 17. Today is CD20 and I still have EWCM. I've been sick for a about a week and have been taking Mucinex, which I know thins the mucus. So I'm trying to figure out if I could have O'd and the Mucinex is just causing everything to stay wet, so it's masking the fact that I've already O'd, or if I still haven't and maybe I'm just O'ing late because of being sick or something. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Mucinex will increase CM. I actually took it to try to increase my CM when TTC.

    Me, too. I think Mucinex might make it harder to use CM only to detect ovulation.

    Thanks for your responses. I know you guys are right. I stopped taking it because I had been taking it for a full week and the next day I noticed the CM wasn't as slippery. So I really have no idea when I O'd. I probably O'd at my normal time and we timed BD wrong. Oh well. We'll see what happens...
